    Overall package seems nice. I think the black and red accents throughout the interior and exterior are a nice touch. Although rubber mats would have been better-suited for this Tundra TRD Pro than carpeted ones. Also, some projector headlights.

    Best looking Tundra to date.

    Overall a tough looking and well specified 4x4 truck. I'm surprised there's not even an option for a locking rear diff, though. Yeah, you can do it aftermarket, but I'd rather get it from the manufacturer so it's well integrated and covered by warranty.

    Sure looks like a Ford

    $46K and no automatic AC? Same issue with the 4Runner TRD too I'm sure. I don't understand Toyota's regression in this department...the '03-09 4Runners had automatic AC across the board (dual zone in the Limiteds), now only the Limiteds have automatic AC. For those of us who live in hotter climates, it is nice not to have to fuss with the AC's temperature & fan speed 2-3 times on every drive. Like DVR, once you have it, you won't go back to living without it. I just can't believe Toyota is being so stingy by no longer offering such a cheap, useful and popular feature that they formerly included as standard.

    C'mon Toyota, get your act together...you're better than this. Right?

    Yup, that's a deal killer for me. I'm hoping the 4runner version has lockers.

    Interesting article - really big truck for a forest trail 4x4 situations, OK for open road 4X4, desert and sandy beaches. I'm curious if Toyota is going to change the Tacoma for 2015, to include new exterior styling, new dash-board (like the Tundra dash), rear disc brakes, sun roof option, 6-speed auto, better fuel management (direct injection) etc, or run into a 9 year cycle with same/similar current body and power-trains?

    We hope to bring in the 4Runner version soon. It's based on the 4Runner Trail, so it'll have whatever diffs that one has. No KDSS, though, because the front lift puts total travel outside the range of the KDSS cylinders. Articulation is improved because of the extra travel, though. 4Runner and Tacoma don't get any interior changes. Its just suspension, exhaust, tire/wheel (and a shift knob).

    As for the timing of an all-new Tacoma, I don't expect it until 2016.

    Pricing was released today. My estimated base price of $45,500 turned out to be a little high but not far off. Today's announced base price for a TRD Pro CrewMax cab like we tested is $43,900 plus $1,100 for the mandatory delivery and destination charge. That works out to a total effective base price of $45,000 even.

    The Double Cab math is $41,285 + $1,100 for an effective base price of $42,385.
