    This was posted just today.

    "Tacoma's 2010 updates are a snap to cover: the truck's front cup-holder has been "enhanced," making it clear that Toyota is in the if it ain't broken, don't change it mode. Base prices remain the same, too, ranging from $15,170 for a Regular Cab with a 5-speed manual tranny to $27,075 for the 4x4 long bed Double Cab with a V6 and 5-speed automatic. For now, take a look at 2009 specs and photos:"


    http://trucks.about.com/b/2009/07/31/2010-toyota-tacoma-updates-prices.htm

    and another link to Car and Driver:

    http://blog.caranddriver.com/change...-fj-cruiser-highlander-rav4-tacoma-and-yaris/

    and finally:

    "Tacoma, the best-selling compact pickup truck in the U.S., will carry over unchanged except for an enhancement to the front cup-holder functionality, and it will not receive a price increase for the 2010 model year. Tacoma's base MSRP ranges from $15,170 for the Regular Cab with a five-speed manual transmission to $27,075 for the V6 4x4 Double Cab Long Bed with a five-speed automatic transmission."

    So there you go for all those who were waiting. Dealer told me a month ago that the changes were "verrryyyy small" but wouldn't tell me specifics.

    (sorry about the wow)

    A bit disappointing. I bet 2011 will bring a complete redesign. I may opt for a 2011 camaro ss myself.

    The last informed prediction I saw in print claimed 2012 was the planned year for the next overall redesign.

    Looks like the 2008 to 2009 changes are mostly it for awhile.

    Aw man, I knew I should have waited till 2010 to buy! That cupholder's functionality is abysmal! It's at least a quarter inch too loose at the second position to properly hold a medium cup from Tim Hortons! This is obviously as major issue for the 2009 model year.

    Wow...2013? Man that's a long time to wait for a redesign. Doesn't Ford change their F150 trucks every 2-3 years? Hahaha.

    I haven't read through the articles but is there any mention of color choices? I wish they'd bring back the indigo. If not it's going to be the mag grey for me!

    Somebody needs to put together a DIY "Enhance the cupholder in your shitty 2005-2009 Tacoma to match the functionality of the fan-damn-tastic 2010 Tacoma" thread.
