Wake up Toyota!

Who do you think is 'Gaining'? The Tacoma has over 40% market share - as of 2011 when the Ranger was still available. The Ranger was number 2 in market share and the Tacoma outsold it almost 2-to-1.

Now the Ranger is gone, the Colorado is gone, and Nissan is not likely to redesign the Frontier any sooner than the Tacoma gets a redesign. So who is going to challenge Toyota for the midsize truck crown? Should we all be afraid of the new Rental Car Grade Colorado if / when GM brings it here?

I'm wondering why the 2012 redesign dropped by $3200 on my model and comes with more. Toyota cheaping out on other things?

Many people don't care bought diesels or modding for that matter. We are a small group.

That is only because presently the Canadian Dollar is above par with the U.S. Dollar, making imports from the U.S. cheaper for us. Wait until our dollar drops again and watch the price of our Vehicles rise.

Diesels would make a lot of sense in trucks and SUVs. I used to own a Jeep and everyone on the forum I went to back then wanted more diesel Jeeps and were crazy about any CRD they could find. I think US emissions laws are the big reasons we do not get many diesels while almost every car sold in Europe has it as an option.

I doubt Toyota starts the trend though. They are more likely to do it if some other car maker starts doing it successfully.

So would we see that at the end of 2014 as a new 2015 model or will we see it at the end of 2015 as a new 2016 model? I'm just waiting for the redesign. My 2010 is about to hit 25K. So in 3 yrs I'll have 65-75K miles and will be ready to trade in!!!!

My plan is to keep my '12 for at least 10 years. I drive about 15k miles per year and 150k should be no problem for a Toyota, especially since I plan to keep the maintenance up to date.

Ya the new Ranger is available in Australia and selling like crazy, looks damn nice too (although I hate the old Ranger so anything is an improvement). Also the Ranger comes in 20+ versions (single, super and double cabs, 2x4, 4x4, and DIESEL!)

And, they already had a major recall since it's launch at the begging of the year...

I don't know how else Toyota is going to get the MPG up to the new standard but I can't imagine they won't follow suit as Ford will be releasing the Ranger here soon.

I don't know if you're in the States... but Ford has repeatedly said they will not be bringing the new Ranger to the States. It would steal sales from their more profitable F-150 and it wouldn't have enough volume to establish a production line within North America, without which they would be subject to the Chicken Tax of importing light trucks, which would bump the price by 25%.

I'm all good with this! 2015? Are you serious? You mean I get to drive around in a truck design that last 10 years. WOW. Most vehicles get changed out in 4 years.

I can't wait to buy another Tacoma around 2016/17.

I just read this article:

http://www.motortrend.com/roadtests/...e/viewall.html

It explains what you said as well as more details. Don't blame the US for not wanting to bring them here just to complete with the 150's but also the fact that Aussies are paying 53k for them says a lot about concentrating on the global market instead lol...

Either way, Toyota still has to get the MPG up for 2016, so there will have to be a redesign in the engine. Lots of people say diesel then lots say it's not going to happen, it's interesting to say the least.

While everyone is fixating on the engine options, Toyota is going to have lose a lot of weight from the body. I would venture to say that Toyota will drop the frame and body design and go to a Honda Ridgeline style of a unibody with a lot of aluminum used. We will see what the future brings.

I bet Toyota will drag their feet and keep the current Tacoma until 2015. It's been seven years and it's still basically the same truck and from what others have said, only minor changes to 2013. I like diesel but don't believe it would be an option due to cost, emissions and demand in the US. Most likely a DI and a 6 speed auto to boost mpg.

From what I've been reading on the net (not that any of it is true) you should expect to see a Nissan Titan (mid-size truck) with diesel in 2015. The articles I've read said the President of Nissan Mtrs would have liked the big three lead the way but it doesn't look like it's going to happen. So Nissan has partner'd with Cummins and with 15 million from DOT/EPA it looks like they may very well introduce a diesel truck with rumored 30MPG. Hope it's true but would love to see Toyota Hilux come in but don't think it will happen. If anything maybe the Tundra will see it first but I'm betting that is all that will happen for some time.

Nissan Titan is hemorging money and sales due to their truck and gas mileage. Nissan knows it will have to do something and soon.

you know what? im happy toyota isnt drastically changing the tacoma till 2016 ish.. cause if u havent noticed, look how long it took the 1st gens to be phased out and they sold excelltent between minor face lifts and such, just like the 2nd gen, just had its first facelift in 2012 after 7 years.. i hate when car companys do a major redesign within 2 or 4 years.. that shows they have no confidence in their product and only want to make money and they dont care about the consumer, toyota, on the other hand knows what works, and look where they are, and where they stand in this truck market.....

True...but...if toyota is to maintain it's market share it must respond to the challenges of competition. The Amarok from VW is poised to make an entry into the U.S. market within the next 5 years. Not so long if you look at what they must do in order to tool up and ramp up their parts acquisitions in lead times. VW has also built a new plant in Chattanoga Tn that will be capable of building an Amarok with little modification. It is state of the art. Toyota must be ready to respond within a year I believe or they will start to lose market share and that is a hard thing to get back....
