    No offense to all the 2nd gen guys, but I like this a lot more.... stock that is.

    But with lifts and bigger tires the US 2nd gens are just flat out beasty looking.

    Is that cutie posing for you or saying, "WTF are you doing?"

    Nope i like my Mexican Taco better. Euro version looks wimpy. Tacos here in the states look more rugged and tough. Just my .02.

    Ha ha and my friends in Poland say they like my 2gen better so grass is always greener on the other side;)

    I admit it would be nice to get the diesel one but only into the 2gen body.

    NO THANK YOU, HOPE THIS IS NOT THE FUTURE OF THE USA TRUCKS? EEWWWWW looks to much like the old Isuzu trucks. The doors and the front and back ends don't look like they belong together. NOT FOR ME!

    Don't like.

    Well, if it's a diesel, I can like it. Looks too wimpy.

    I like the front end, maybe because it's more aero-looking or maybe just because it's different from Tacomas I see every day (greener grass like BlueT said).

    EDIT: I just noticed the antenna coming out of the driver's A-pillar, I like that location better than the passenger front fender.

    its called a hilux, never seen one before? its not just european, north america is the only place you can get tacomas, every where else in the world they sell the hilux, imo the hilux is a real heavy duty truck compared to our mall crawling tacomas.

    looks arent everything everywhere else in the world, its a north american thing, well i guess, but they just have a different view on what looks good. But the hilux is a much more durable truck then our tacomas.
