    Wondering if anybody has a 6cyl 2010 taco in their possession yet.

    I'm really curios to see pics of the newly designed 1GR motor. :D

    Newly designed motor? I think you'll have to check out an FJ or 4Runner as I don't think we are getting the updates.

    Be nice if we were though.

    one of my good buddies bought his last saturday. We immediately put about 40 off road miles on it. I just joined so I can search for stuff for him. I've been into cars/trucks for awhile longer and am looking forward to learning about these great little trucks (i only say little cuz i'm used to a F250 haha).

    It's a 4 door TRD off road. It's the really dark metallic grey color. I was lucky enough to drive it for awhile and I have to say I loved it. Great camping rig right out of the box.

    Edit: It's exactly like the one below. Brb, researching lifts for my buddy!

    I think your right. I think it would be stupid to two different version of the 1GR motor into production at the same time. Especially if they have teh same name, and such drastic changes.

    :(

    Oh well...

    Yes, only the FJ and 4Runner get the new motor which sucks due to the fact the Frontier has been at 260hp for awhile.

    Ever driven them side by side?

    The Tacoma feels and acts like it has more power than the Frontier.

    the Frontier is about 100 times gayer, and looks 100 times uglier too.

    ALSO, I've never heard a chick say "oooh, Frontiers make me all wet".

    Actually, my friend has an '08 Frontier. I have been meaning to drive his truck. The one thing he bitches about is the poor fuel economy he is getting.

    I totally disagree. The Frontier feels much stronger to me, as well as more refined and quiet, especially the transmission. I've had a 2006 SE cc since 2006. The Tacoma feels more like a truck.

    However, i'm prolly picking up my 2010 trd this weekend!!

    I also do got to say, it seems as if the Taco will be MUCH easier to work on. If it ever needs it. I'm just a little worried about the 1-2 gear change surge thing i've been reading about.

    The Tacoma is significantly faster to 60 than the Frontier. I think the more sluggish feel is from the throttle responce. I put a high flow air filter and removed the secondary filter and that alone really improved the feel. I left my driveway after making the change and spun a tire accelerating the way I had been, expecting a leisurely take off.

    I'm sure the engine in the Frontier is quieter, but the Auto in the Tacoma is smooth as silk, it just takes it a little while to 'learn' your driving.

    There isn't any kind of surge from 1st to second...it just holds first gear longer than you would expect sometimes during certain turns, but honestly, I can't remember it happening in a long time - either I got used to it or it stopped doing it.
