All 4x4 double cabs had the V6 and auto trans, a 4x2 (pre-runner) came standard with the 2.7 L 4 cyl. (since you are new to this I figured I'd explain that when the other guys say pre-runner they are talking about the truck you are looking at.)
For what it's worth, I had a 2004 Xtracab, with the 2.7 engine and the manual tranny. The only time I wanted for more power was after we bought our travel trailer, or in the absolute dead of the summer with the air on.
Since you are not planning on towing, that should not be a factor. I am not saying that with the air on it was a total dog, just that I felt it had a noticible lack of power then.
Hope this helps.
