It serves similar purpose as other mid-sized pickups, for similar price.
I need an 8ft bed. Anything shorter is a lifestyle truck. If I'm going to get crap mpg it better be for a good reason.
I don't need an 8 foot bed - I have a 10 ft utility trailer if I need to haul sheet goods from home depot or gravel from the quarry. Looks like it will haul an elk, so it'd work for me.
But, the pricing is insane on these. A new Colorado ZR2 with the diesel is like $20k less. New full size pickups are less.
But, Jeeps got to make money where they can, so as long as they are flying off the lot, more power to them.
Are they really flying off the lot? I've only seen two on the road since they came out. I was expecting to be seeing them everywhere by now.
The fact that you can get them with a manual makes it a lot cooler no matter what
I think Tacoma is one of the few others that offer a Manuel
Right - I dont think you can get one with a V6 anymore though but dont quote me.
I believe it's just with the 3RZ. If I had any money, I would buy a manual Taco for sure
edit; you can get it with the V6 as well
As of 2018 you still could but only in certain models
I had a 3rd gen 4 Runner with a 3RZ and a stick and IMHO that's the ideal setup as long as you're not towing anything more than a dirtbike.
The engine is about as simple and ubiquitous as can possibly be, super easy to work on and at the end of the day its a great motor.
My ‘04 Wrangler has the I 6
Talk about a great motor.
My CJ-7 has an I-6 too. Bored, balanced, blueprinted, fuel injected..... it's still a dog
You can buy a ZR2 with a diesel for $35k? Not a bad deal.
No more 4 cylinder with stick as of 2018, I believe.
V6 Stick available in US on access cab and 4 door short bed TRD Sport, 4 door short bed TRD Offroad, and TRDPro, which is 4 door short bed only.
In Canada you can get an access cab TRD Offroad with V6 stick.
Availability of stick is one of the reasons I bought my Tacoma.
Looks cool, but that roll bar and tire setup makes an already small bed completely useless.
Jesus, this shit again. Everyone NEEDS an 8' bed on their 40' long truck. No mindsized truck is going to have an 8' bed these days. I'm perfectly fine with my 5' bed and a 5x8 utility trailer, because it sucks to load a motorcycle, atv or about anything else requiring an 8' long bed into that 8' long bed. Some people like smaller trucks that you can actually take off road and will fit in their garage.
You have a slide in camper? Great, it wouldn't be going on a midsize truck anyways.
Agreed. One of the primary reasons i sold my 5th gen 4Runner and picked up a Nissan Frontier, missed my manual i had in my previous JK rubicons. If the gladiator wouldve been out at the time of my shopping, i'd have looked although the pricing would have been much more.
I loved my 3rd gen 4 Runner. I had always wanted once - since high school but once I got it all set up with FJ springs, new brakes etc and my wife was driving it every day. She finally told me that she wanted to get something else as that was her daily driver and not mine.
She is only 5 foot flat and it was just too high for her but perfect for me. We ended up selling it for a Highlander which is a great little car - just not a 'Runner.
Someday I'll have a overland 4Runner
It needs to be a flatbed too. I'm too lazy to make two trips... lifestyle trucks are kept in the garage, real trucks are out working.
