I'm in the market for a new truck, never owned a Tacoma but have always been a fan. I want to go with a 4cyl for durability and fuel economy and I like the stance of the Prerunners/4x4 models. Every truck I've owned has been 4x4, I'm not a weekend warrior by any means but it's nice to have when you need it. I've decided I could live without four wheel drive, but would like to go with a Prerunner for purely aesthetic reasons (may be pretentious, but hey it's my money right ). I've narrowed my options down to the following due to budget constraints:
1) Single Cab 4x4
2) Access Cab Prerunner
I can't bring myself to spend more than 20k on a 4cyl truck, plus I can't really afford it either. Based on my research I expect the fuel economy to be roughly the same for the two vehicles and I could be happy with either. I'm married, don't have any kids and I'm not plan on any for 2-3 years. I've read that the access cab is a pain in the butt with car seats but is doable, and obviously out of the question with a single cab.
So here's what I'd like to hear from you guys, what would you choose and why.
