So my father in law was in the market for a mid sized truck and has always been a Chevy guy so he and his wife went and looked at and test drove the Chevy Colorado, and the GMC Canyon. They liked certain things on each truck so they didnt buy that day. They called my wife that night to tell them what had happened and I told her to tell them not to buy anything until they at least test drove a Tacoma. Sure enough later that next day my wife's mom called her and said your dad didnt make it 1 block before he said "I want it." I thought it was cool that he test drove those 3 trucks and is extremely biased towards Chevy and still picked the Tacoma.
They bought a 2012 SR5 short bed and this is my review of the 12 compared to my 07. The front end looks better in person. I love the new dash. I love the new steering wheel and technology upgrades. But I have to say the accelerator peddle is extremely "hard" to push compared to my 07. The SR5 seats are not very comfy at all compared to my TRD seats. Other than that its identical to my truck.
Here is a Pic: My truck is in right behind it.
