2012 TACOMA MEGA-THREAD

Trucktrend states only "Minor Changes" to the 2012 Tacoma. Still nothing about a all new Taco at the Chicago Auto Show. So sounds like Wishful thinking for an all new Taco for '12. I thought for sure it would debut in Chi town. Toyota loves to show new trucks in Chicago.

The redesign already happened in 09. You guys didn't see the LED tail lights and black chrome headlight housing on the TRD models?

I think the OP is talking about the major redesign of the trucks body and not just the parts.

I know. I was just kidding. There has been so much talk of an update on the Tacoma that I don't believe any of it. I'll see the update when it is on the showroom floor for sale. Even then I really don't care because I'm not going to trade in just to get the same truck again. My truck is just fine.

I figured that the taco redesign would follow the 4runner redesign. How many years has it been? I guess it will get here when it gets here.

Then we will have to listen about how bad they suck and any new technology on them is crap, until everyone gets one.

I still check for stuff but then I just use the camera. If you use it at night in a dark area the reverse lights create an arrow with the center of it being the tow hitch.

I've been thinking this for a while. The taco is the best selling mid-sized truck and they just made changes to the line-up (offering more auto's, the tx pro, etc.)

Why fix what isn't broken? Often redesigns don't go well. Look at what happened to the Cavalier or to the Dakota after their last redesigns. Sales plummeted.

IMO, we might not see a new Taco until it is over-passed in sales by the Frontier for a few years in a row. I won't complain. Makes my truck look newer, and keeps the prices down. Really, I think that's part of the reason why the mid-sized market has collapsed. The prices of the trucks are much too close to that of the full-sized. People in the midwest love cheap, compact, 4x4 trucks. It suites most of their needs perfectly.

I've been thinking how smart it would be for a company like Kia or Hyundai to offer a true new compact truck with the base model for 15k.

You wont see a long bed "Off Road"... Shorter the wheelbase is, better it is off road.. That is why they market the Sport with the long bed.

Also, my Off-Road does have JBL..

I have to agree, Leather and Sunroof would be nice.
