    I stand corrected. Why doesn’t the locker work on a Pro/OR in 2wd or 4hi?

    I’m hoping they do those in a DC in the next couple years. Might actually be able to afford one, lol.

    I’m not surprised and I don’t think it’s niche. The Tacoma has always been designed and marketed as a fairly competent off-roader. They offered SDM so that the truck could retain good articulation. The the 2nd and 3rd gens had some of the best rear articulation in their class because of the flexy rear c channel frame. It has a pretty impressive amount of flex stock, one of the design features that makes it so inherently good off-road, especially compared to the competition. I love flexing the rear end of my third gen on the trails. The problem is it flexes itself apart making bed stiffeners mandatory if you plan on wheeling frequently.

    They moved to a fully boxed frame with the 4th gen so they naturally lost a little bit of rear articulation in favor of stronger frame. To counter act that loss a SDM became necessary. It should give it better balance now out on the trail while retaining the competitive articulation the 3g had.

    Anybody with a decent amount of experience would take that boost in articulation well before a front locker. Aftermarket SDMs aren’t readily available the same way quality front lockers are. The truth is, if you are aired down with rear end locked and TRAC engaged, you will be able to clear a majority of obstacles. I run arb air lockers and have to go out of my way to put my truck in situations where the front locker is necessary.

    The term "off-road" spans a lot different terrain which includes "rock-crawling". When I think of rock-crawling, this is what I'm talking about.


    upload_2024-5-15_6-17-42.png

    This is better suited for short wheelbase low overhang vehicles like Jeeps, Broncos, and FJs. Yes, Tacomas can go through stuff like this but I don't think they're the ideal platform. I live in AZ and I have the opportunity to drive on trails like this but have no interest in doing so.

    Rutted trails, mud, and rocks like the pic below are more than the average Tacoma user will drive on.

    The coil springs probably helped maintain rear flexibility with the stiffer 4g frame so again, SDM probably not needed. But if they offered a front locker and no SDM, people would bitch about that instead.

    Who here uses a stock or mildly modified Tacoma on rocks like the pic above?

    Well this is interesting:

    Chinese giant BYD unveiled its first pickup truck, dubbed Shark, at an exclusive event in Mexico City. The 2024 BYD Shark is a midsize truck with a plug-in hybrid powertrain that can cover over 500 miles. This was the first time the automaker had a global debut outside of China, which speaks of the importance that Mexico plays for its future despite all the controversy going on with the emergence of Chinese EVs in North America.

    The Shark is slated to compete against the Ford Ranger and Chevrolet Colorado, as well as Toyota Hilux and Nissan Navara in global markets. While BYD doesn't sell cars in the U.S., the Shark could make a big impact around the world, as the pickup segment is big in Latin America and Asia. For now, the truck will be built in China, but the automaker is planning to unveil the location of its plant in Mexico in the coming months, and the Shark could be one of the vehicles built there.

    Powered by a 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine mated to two electric motors, the 2024 BYD Shark makes 430 hp combined. No torque numbers were given, but BYD says the plug-in hybrid truck can tow 5,511 pounds (2,500 kg) and has a payload capacity of 1,841 pounds (835 kg). The automaker also said the Shark can sprint from 0-62 mph in 5.7 seconds.

    The Shark has an EV-only range of 62 miles thanks to its 30-kWh blade battery, and can cover 528 miles with a full tank and charged battery. This is more range than any other midsize pickup truck in America, including the hybrids. Despite being a PHEV, the Shark supports fast-charging thanks to its CCS1 port. While no specs were given on charge speeds, BYD representatives said the truck can be charged from 20 to 80 percent in about 30 minutes, which is subpar for a PHEV, but not terribly bad.

    While the 2024 BYD Shark is not available in America, the truck will be sold south of the border starting at $53,440 as of this writing's exchange rate. There will be two versions available, both equipped with the same powertrain the GL and GS. BYD didn't specify what the differences are between the two trucks, but we think it's all related to the equipment inside the Shark. The 2024 BYD Shark will be available in Mexico in the coming weeks, with reservations already open.

    Hell no to buying a Chinese EV, but that is the power train the Tacoma should have had.

    I wondered what a Frontier from Hyundai would look like. Chinese EV are supposed to become a big thing in Central and South America. But tariffs on CEV in the US, the big 3 or at least GM will be selling CEV in the US under their marque.

    Look up the KIA Tasman and that is what I would imagine it would look like.

    I don't think I would buy a BYD but definitely wouldn't anywhere near that price. If toyota built a PHEV tacoma I would assume it would be mid to high 40s base. BYD would need to be 15k-20k cheaper to even consider it.

    rav4 28,500 msrp, rav4 prime 43500 msrp,
    tacoma 31500 msrp, tacoma prime 46,600?

    No joke,

    but which part, the price of a tacoma prime? If it adds 15k to a rav4 why not the same or even say 20k to a tacoma then it's just over 50k. Why would anyone buy a BYD over a toyota?

    Or just a joke that I would even consider a BYD? I probably wouldn't but I would like it to be an option keep toyota in check price wise. But the big thing with BYD was the price of there cars this truck is just ridiculous. there cars were to be around 10-20k.
