I have narrowed it down to two types for 500 miles a week daily driver, no four wheeling, no heavy towing. Both with SR5 package.
I will keep this a LONG time and it has to be correct.
1. Reg. access cab, 2wd, 2.7L, auto
2. PreRunner, access cab, 2wd, 2.7L, auto. (I like that it sits higher and looks better)
A few questions:
a. Dealer told me, in my area, MD., the choice #1 is not available in the base, only SR5 to start (and that is OK with me) Is this true or is it a regional thing?
b. Real gas mileage between the two. Will the PreRunner only knock it down 1 MPG+/-?
Yes I am more then aware driving style has everything to do with it but on average I am asking.
c. Would I be correct saying:
#1 (reg) is 15" tires (5 lug?)
#2 (PreRunner) is 16" tires? (6 lug?) (More expensive to replace?)
d. Would I be correct in saying the PreRunner has the heavier suspension similar or same as the 4X4 therefore a little stiffer ride.
e. Any other outstanding differences?
I am going to contact the dealers very soon and the price was not that far apart. I need to get this decided.
I need some clear answers. I don't want to say:
"I should have......."
"I wish I would have asked this before buying!"
