So my question is should I get a used 2010 FJ with 40k+ miles or a brand new Taco?
I had a 4cyl 2011 5 spd. Put 20,000 miles on it and consistently got 21mpg with mixed driving. My 2012 4.0 auto gets around 16-18 and quite frankly is still pretty slow. Only reason I went bigger is because we will be having a family in the near future and I need the extra cab space.
There honestly isn't a major difference in performance, but again I don't buy a truck for speed. Also the 2.7L is legendary for performance and reliability. I say go with the truck.
