    It's funny, because everyone I know that doesn't have a tacoma and has some other truck either wants a tacoma or wishes they had bought a tacoma.

    I priced a silverado double cab the same time as my tacoma and it was 2k$ more than what I paid for my tacoma. If you're paying 40k$ for the 1500 you're a sucker.

    I already raced one of those and I could only see him in my rearview....thanks to the LS1.
    The colorado is crap, drove one (5cyl), it handled horrible (yeah its a truck) but my Tacoma handles very well (for what it is) and has power to the ground with an aluminum V8.

    IMO I should send Toyota my truck and say "Hey guys, make these!!!"

    Theres nothing like starting your truck and people are looking around for a muscle car, lol, when its just me in my little taco. :p

    Well if you raced a stock one then I would hope you beat it. I would still take a Syclone.

    I had a Colorado before my Taco and it was a tank in the winter.. I could go anywhere and not get stuck and hardly spun a tire with 4wd. I think the Tacos are alot better quality overall though.

    Sounds like you know nothing about chevy v8's. :(

    Forget the fact that they're just awesome in general, a chevy 5.7 is much more compact than a toyota 5.7 and fit in smaller engine bays much easier.

    I'd bet he knows nothing about the Tundra's V8 either, other than the fact that it's made by Toyota.

    Whats with the insanely tall gearing in those Chevys? Both the 3.5L I5 and the 5.3L V8 on those transmissions go to 80+ mph in 2nd gear. Nothing wrong with the engines, it's those transmissions that are sucking the fun from the party!

    Well, it isn't the tallest transmission gearing I've seen from Chevy. I rode in an Impala that would redline 1st gear at 63 mph with the 3.5L V6. Literally, my 109hp Honda Fit could eat that car alive from a standstill.
