2011 V6 AT Only?!?!

My apologies if I've landed in the wrong forum ... newby and all that.

Anyway, to date I've had/have an '81, '92, and '04 Toy PUs, the latter 2 are 4x4s and all have been manual trannies. I'm considering getting a new Taco but am concerned as there seems to be no way to get a 4x4 V6 with a standard tranny! Amazing ...

Are the ATs with electronic transfer case controllers worth it? Thoughts, comments???

Thanks...

Doesn't di2nd gens have 6spd standard transmissions I've test drove one and I liked it but a lot of people said that it doesn't drive like a normal 5spd so id say go check your local dealer they should have one and try it out and if you like it great but the new AT they have now is very efficient and is very smooth and worth looking into but me personally id still get the standard

You can get the 4wd V6 in a manual. The 6 speed isn't that great though.

The electronic 4wd system is ok but some do fail.

When I bought my 2009 it depended on configuration. I couldn't get a long bed TRD O/R DoubleCab with a manual, so I got the short bed.

Thanks all ... I guess I should have been more specific as it's my impression that the access cab with the V6 only is available in the AT? I 've come to like the space that comes with this cab but also don't want to go to the double cab as the bed's too short... so, the 4x4 with access cab and V6 only comes with AT, right? And, if so, I wonder what they were thinking?!?

Hmm .. maybe it's a Memphis problem as when I go to the toyota.com site and select the build a tacoma option it won't allow the V6 + Access + Manual ... if it's available as Whippersnapper02 says above, perhpas it's not in my zip? That doesn't really make sense but they as for your zip code before the build options are allowed.

Nice that you can get the OFF ROAD TRD in a manual, for those who want it!

Hmm. Id won't let me build it with your ZIP. I would call your local dealer and see if they can order one or locate one at a different dealer.

V6 6spd 4x4 is available. Tell your dealer to locate one for you.
Some argue the manual is heavy and not all that great, and that the gearing is spaced far apart.

The plus side is the 6spd is a little faster, but gets worse MPG as the 6th gear is higher then the 5th gear in the AT. So far my manual hasn't failed me yet, and I bought it because it's 1000x more fun to drive.... in my opinion, but to each is own.

I believe the auto and manual run the same times.
