    They are all legit. Barcelona came along with the '09 model year, the other two are previous years.

    Oh ok. Why would they change it 3 times??!! They could have brought back the II instead of changing it again and again and again

    ^This man speaks the truth. Preach on, brother.

    Automakers do it all the time. Probably some kind of market research or something I would imagine. I'm glad I have IRP because it's the only Tacoma red that I like.
