The Toyota Man #1 said:I just wish that Toyota would stop leaving us all in the dark about when the new Tacoma will come out. I have hear that March 2004 was a target date now I hear next Sept 2004 will be the date.... I am looking to move up to a new one but also looking at the double cabTundra's which are hot trucks but the price is way out of line!! $32,000 to $39,300.00 is really steep to think that you buy it and not even get a investment on it. So this is why I think I am going to hold out for the new 2005 Toyota Tacoma unless some car dealer really wants to make a deal of a life time on the new Tundra!! I have a 1995 Toyota Tacoma that is really a great TRUCK!! It just keeps running and is a work horse. I had the rear leaf springs redone and the rear does not move it is really tight, new half brass and reg clutch new timimg belt!! All in the 8 years I have had this truck not bad at all. Oh well lets see what Toyota does next. I hope some to Exe from there reads these posts to see that we are all waiting on them!! They do built a great vechile!! :ts:
I doubt it, a V8 would cut into Tundra sales.Agent WD-40 said:Is there any new news on this? Toyota tends to do a good job of keeping new products on the down low until the official release. I wonder if the 4.7 V8 will make it into the Taco. If they use the new 4.0 V6 that will still be pretty potent.

I had a Tacoma and the rear end was so light that it slid around all the time when it was wet. Does it need a lighter rear end? The old Tacoma had three bed sizes: short, long, and long with a stepside.Agent WD-40 said:It looks like the new Tacoma will have 3 bed sizes. 2 long beds and a short bed. Read page 13 of this article. They also say the inner bed will be composite. This will save weight, production costs and time, and prevent dents and rust from forming on the inside of the bed. Not bad Toyota!
