Been browsing through these forums as my search for a new vehicle gets narrowed down. Right now I have an '01 1500 Extended Cab Silverado with 130k miles. I'd keep the truck, but a new baby is on the way (and it's about time) for the wife and I so I need something 4 doors.
I do a lot of fishing, so I was able to convince her that a truck is the best option for me. I tow a 16' boat 2-4 times a month, and with everything loaded that will hit probably 2500 pounds. Most tows are about 20 miles of highway driving. The majority of my driving is about 15-20 miles a day to and from work with just me.
So my questions are, what would be the best Taco for me? I've been debating heavily between 4/6 cylinder. I also have been trying to figure out what options I want, and think the PreRunner is the way to go. I'll be trading in my truck, and I've never purchased a car since the truck was given to me as a graduation present and is the only vehicle I've known for the past 8 years.
What I need:
Ability to tow boat
I'm leaning toward a new 2012 as most dealerships are trying to clear them out. The wife is due in February so the sooner I can get my Tacoma the better. I appreciate any advice from this pool of knowledge, and can answer any questions needed of me.
