Would you buy this truck?



IF Toyota made this truck, would you buy it?

Tacoma Regular Cab Short Bed 4x4 TRD
4.7L v8
97" wheelbase (about the same as a Wrangler)

Could probably be built custom, but would one expensive bitch.

Yeah, I've definitely seen that concept and love it. Just took it a step further and made it Reg cab for the shorter wheelbase. Which I think would dominate on the trail!

I totally agree that a short wheelbase is not ALWAYS a good thing. But you're way less likely to scrape in the middle, expanding the amount of terrain you could cover significantly.

You could race in 4x4 and might need it to keep the tires on the ground and get full use of that V8 in such a light vehicle.

Too much weight....

Power-to-Weight ratio : The lower the better

Obviously, Toyota would have to design some things differently to handle such horsepower in a small lightweight package.

That's not always the case. Sometimes having more traction is worth the weight, especially getting off the line.
