Did a search on autotrader.com for Tundra with V6/access cab and automatic transmission (2005-2006) and yielded 90 results. Did the same with the V6 and manual transmission and yielded only 12 trucks in the entire US for sale right now! I wonder how many they made with that configuration total in 06?

Probably not alot since the V6 is a bit underpowered for that truck. I do know that you could only get manual in a V6, which sucks, because I'd love to have a 6 speed manual in mine!!

Just checked mine and only found 6. It's a 2001 V6 w/manual tranny. Maybe I can put collector car plates on mine.

I ordered my V6 6-speed SR5 A/C in Dec. and had a heck of a time getting it. I love it so far.:tu: In my humble opinion, the power is quite adequate except right off the line (by comparison, but my other car is a C5 Corvette :D).

Yes, but the 3.4L Supercharger fits nicely on that engine and those S/Cs are still easy to get (unlike the S/Cs for the 4.7L) :)

The new V6 is 236 hp. The old V8 is 240 hp. By hp, they are almost the same, but I'm sure torque is probably different.

I have a Step-Side. They are rare, too. Especially since they are no longer being made. I expect that could make mine a collectors item if I hold on to it long enough. I searched and only found 18 for sale in the US for all years the SS was made.

It doesn't drive underpowered at all. The only thing I've noticed (which has been mentioned) is that 1st gear is very low. Other than that, the power is quite adequate. Like someone mentioned, the old Tundra V8 had hp #s near identical to the new V6, and torque was almost exact as well.

I saw a few 05-06 Tacoma Prerunners with ext cab and the 2.7 4cyl. That would seem more likely to be underpowered.

A friend of mine purchased a Camry sedan several years ago, and special ordered it with a manual transmission. He also thought it was rare, which it was. He's had it for sale now for 2 years. Could it be the vast majority of people choose automatic over stick that makes it rare?

"Rare" don't necessarily mean "Valuable".
