    does anybody care to speculate as to why some websites are showing a automatic transmission version of the reg cab and ac cab 4x4's. I am wondering if the 4cyl will have more power, since they have not offered this since 2004?

    What web sites are you referring to that are talking about 4x4 reg cab autos? That combo would make me want to buy a second gen since I'm at the edge of needing a 4x4 here in the mountains of NC.
    The dealers I have talked to have stated no changes in that model of the Tacos but of course they are trying to move the 2010s with discounts up to $2k.
    A 200HP 3.0l 4 cylinder regular cab auto 4x4 would be the ticket to make me trade my 2002.
    Thanks,

    Are you 100% sure. If so they could have done that in 2005.

    Not sure how reputable the source but...

    No major change to appearance, equipment, or features is likely for model-year 2011. And the 2010 Tacoma’s looks and engineering won’t go out of style for several years; the next big update probably won’t occur before model-year 2014.

    The 2011 Toyota Tacoma is not due any notable mechanical changes. The 2011 Tacoma will again be available with a choice of two engines, a 2.7-liter four-cylinder or a 4.0-liter V-6. Both are dual-overhead-cam designs with variable valve timing. Expect 2011 Tacoma power ratings to carry over from the 2010 model, with the four-cylinder at 159 horsepower and 180 pound-feet of torque and the V-6 at 236 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque. A dealer-installed TRD supercharger kit boosts the V-6 to 304 horsepower and 334 pound-feet and carries a 5-year, 60,000-mile factory warranty. The V-6 is standard on Tacoma Double Cabs and available on Access Cabs; it isn’t available on the regular-cab. Transmission choices for the 2011 Tacoma ought to repeat, too. Four-cylinder 4WD versions will come only with a five-speed manual, four-cylinder 2WD models will be available the manual or a four-speed automatic. V-6 Tacomas will repeat with a choice of six-speed manual or five-speed automatic, though the X-Runner has been manual only. Both engines mate with rear-wheel drive or with a part-time 4WD system for use only on slippery surfaces. The 4WD system has low-range gearing suitable for off-road use. Off-road ability is a Tacoma selling point, starting with its pure-truck body-on-frame construction and a suspension with coil springs in front and a rugged leaf-spring solid-axle in back. Just over half the Tacomas sold are 4WD models, and about 35 percent have the TRD package. Available on 4WD V-6 Access or Double cabs, the TRD Off-Road package includes a fortified and raised suspension, hill-start and hill-descent control, and a locking rear differential activated from an electronic switch in the cab. Manual-transmission 4WD Tacomas are also among the few modern vehicles that can be started in gear without depressing the clutch – a trick employed by off-roaders on steep inclines. Non-TRD Tacomas come with Toyota’s Automatic Limited-slip Differential. All Tacomas have front-disc/rear-drum brakes but come with antilock control and traction-control and antiskid systems, Equipped with a V-6 Tow Package, Access and Double cabs can pull 6,500-pound trailers. Maximum payload rating is 1,570 pounds.

    there are access cab 4x4s up here with 2.7l and a five speed not sure about the auto though. If it's available here you've got it too.

    The site i saw was a toyota site for dealers, i cannot find the thread anymore. They could have done it in 2005, but to be honest i doubt the market for a 4x4 4cyl automatic is that great.

    Personally,i want a 5 speed. but for them to be offering a 4x4 reg & ac cab,ac cab prerunner,double cab 5 lug & prerunner double cab, all with a automatic. it just makes me think that it would have to be more powerful. i may be wrong, i just dont want to get 2010 and a couple of months later wish i would have waited.

    As I've stated before, I certainly hope they up the 2.7 liter I4 to be dual VVT-I and mate it to a 6sp auto if they are going to put in 4x4 Tacomas. This would help increase it's performance while increasing mpg.

    If Toyota sticks with the 2.7 VVT-I with the 4sp auto they used in the 1st gen. Tacoma it’s going to be a dog in a 4x4 Tacoma. Plus it probably won’t get great gas mileage because it will laboring.

    They offer this engine in the 4runner now so the update costs could be shared between the two models.

    Just my 2 cents.
