I currently drive a 2002 GMC Sierra reg cab long box 2wd with the 4.3 V6. Its a big truck with a small engine and won't win any races. However, I now have three kids so the three seater won't work anymore. I use the truck as my daily commuter (70 km a day- highway) to drive back and forth to work.
I need a truck with at least 4 seats and that will get the best mileage. I would like a 4wd and it seems that a Tamcoma Access Cab 4x4 with the 2.7L 45 cylinder fits the bill.
My question is with power. My current truck is pretty gutless so I am used to a slow vehicle. It gets on average 16 mpg driving on pretty level ground. Do you think I would disappointed with the power of the 4 cylinder Tacoma, moving to it, from the V6 Sierra? Anyone have experience with both of these trucks?
