    My bowels haven't released any new info about the redesign. Maybe I need to eat off of the lunch truck.

    I believe there is room in the market place for a compact truck to be smaller than the current 2nd generation Tacoma. For me, the Ford Ranger and 1st generation Tacoma/Pickup (I owned an 95 and 84 respectively) size is ideal. If the Ranger isn't so long in the tooth I might have considered it even though I hate that it's a Ford. The 2nd generation Taco is really a mid size truck like the Dodge Dakota that preceded it. Maybe the Koreans Kia or Hyundai will fill that niche market and bring in a true compact truck. As for the global Ranger that is not planned for North America, it's a big truck. The Motor Trend article says it is within 10% of all dimensions of a F-150. That would be like the 1st generation Tundra. Too big.

    I currently own a 95 (not a 95.5 but a real 95) Tacoma and looking for some suspension parts for it the other day I was surprised to hear how small my truck was. Hmmm guess I never looked at it that way. But when I drove a Hilux in Afghanistan it was the same size as my Tacoma....who knows maybe we've come full cirlce on the body size and style.

    I'm currently very happy with my 2012 Tacoma and looking forward to a few mods.

    What happens in a few years to the Tacoma is really of no current concern of mine.

    And no...I don't want a diesel.

    Ya but this is the first one that showed that Toyota is definitively redesigning the Tacoma (Generation 3). Plus they have to meet new MPG standards.

    As this is the 'Tacoma World' forum it's definitely a interesting topic. Lots of people are posting they 'don't care,' but I don't believe them, not at all lol...

    I dig it. Always up for a little automotive news/speculation. Especially if it has to do with the Toyota truck line.

    If I'm not mistaken Toyota was ready to put a diesel in the Tundra in 2009 or 2010 but the economy went south. Due to lagging sales they decided against it--but still have the plans ready...if and when.

    Just as you are going to buy, hold out for the redesign so you end up never buying anything.

    That's what I'm holding out for. But then again I just got my 95 broke in at 190,000.
