If the new transmission goes in to the F150, I will pick one up for sure.

Not just Toyota, almost all of the Japanese automakers, have lost that "special feeling" they used to offer. I think it has to do with offering way to many platforms and options.

I like where Ford is heading, now that they have had what seems like a company wide overhaul.

Ford is making a lot tech. upgrades to their drive trains which is really cool. I just wish we could hear some of this type of news from Toyota. Pretty disappointing that V6 4x4 Tacoma gets very similar mpg to a full size F150. Toyota needs to come to the table quickly with some mpg improvements.

I'm in the market for a new truck, and I've been holding out for the 2012 Tacoma, with my fingers crossed. ...don't want to but I may have be force to take a look at the Fords.

Look like its not confirmed yet for the F150?

Sounds cool. I kinda see it as a bad thing for some owners. People aready bitch about gear hunting while driving. With more gears it will do it more.

I think it's funny how transmissions are like razors. Let's just keep adding blades. Well gears in this case.

Weigh your options, the turbo is awesome but if you live in a really hilly/mountainous area, your MPGs are going to stay in the low teens. The 5.0L is the well rounded motor.

i read somewhere that its not gettin the 8 speed, but is getting a 6 speed automatic. although the f150 sounds like it will be a great buy, u still gotta remember its built by Ford, which will most likely break down before a 1st gen tacoma lol
