I currently own an '09 GMC Sierra 1500 and for a while i have been looking into downsizing because a half ton is just more than I need.
The '12 Tacoma's have caught my eye recently with their new front end and interior redesign.
One of the reasons that i am looking at the Tacoma's in particular is the 6 speed manual trans. The 6 speed auto in the Sierra can be a bit dumb at times with trying to figure out what gear to be in and I am getting fed up with it.
I have a few questions about these trucks that I'm hoping that you guys can help me clear up.
1. How is the 6 speed in the Tacoma like to drive?? I drive a standard car ('76 Datsun 280Z!) in the summer so it shouldn't be a problem picking up a standard truck. I'm just curious as to how people think of the feel of it.
2. On the build and price site one of the options available is the TRD Tacoma QuickShifter. Is it worth getting?
3. Is the TRD supercharger available as a dealer installed accessory for the 2012's??
4. Any other quirks I can expect going from a GMC to a Toyota??
The truck I'm thinking of going with is a 4wd V6 crew cab with the 6 speed.
Sorry for the long winded post but I figured you guys could help be with picking out a new truck.
