Any inputs and/or opinions, on how COMFORTABLE a Tacoma Access Cab is/isn't on a Long Distance Road Trip?
I drive a Jeep Wrangler (My Toy and Daily Driver...), which is built for FUN, not comfort, and my wife drives a Suzuki SX4 Crossover Wagon (Her Daily Driver...). Hers is ok to drive for a couple of hours, but can cause leg cramps, back-n-butt aches, and arm discomfort after awhile.
We're looking to add a third vehicle to our household, the aforementioned Tacoma, an Access Cab Pre-Runner model. Our NEED for this vehicle, would be for various hauling at various times. We do a lot of Landscaping, so, between Rocks, Bricks, Trees & Bushes, we're always hauling something or having it Delivered by Lowe's. Another reason we're looking at a Tacoma, is to get into a mid-size truck that is HOPEFULLY Comfortable on a Long..... Long Drive.
We like taking Day-Trips and Over-Nighters, so we're looking for a versatile vehicle that can Haul & Travel the distance. I'm 6'1", 54-yo, and Retired/Retired. In other words, I'm a tall guy that sounds like a Breakfast Cereal when I wake up... SNAP, CRACKLE & POP... and a need to have to be Nowhere at No particular Time!
I've got two upcoming Road-Trips, El Paso (500 miles One-Way...) in Oct, and New Orleans (500 miles One-Way...) in Nov. We're hoping to get a Tacoma by then. Both vehicles we have now are Paid-Off, so we'll only have the Tacoma Payment to worry about.
I did run a SEARCH on here, looking for an answer to my question, but the closest I could get was, "Daily Driver Comfort", regarding commutes of 75 miles or less a day. We're looking for inputs on Long Distance Driving.
Any info and/or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
