    2013 is when they will be changing the body style. They did say however that they were going to try to make the TSB list shorter than the 05-09

    For trucks, they need a diesel, and maybe front drive and/or hybrid to get better mileage. I think they could make a lot on a high-mileage city truck based on the camry hybrid drivetrain. (Like the highlander). Toyota will be using focus groups to determine features needed, the "wow" features, and what packages will contain. I'm guessing they will continue the (oversize) Tundra, but Tacomas will get smaller again.

    I think anyone making statements about when the redesign will happen, or what will change, should be required to post their sources...

    I think the 3rd generation Tacoma needs to have V8 4.7 liter engine and it need to be more off road capable
