    My 4 banger 6 lug was built in the U.S.A, I thinks thats the OP's only mistake. Everyone else is just ignorant of the awesomeness that is the 2.7l 6 lug taco!

    I can be wrong but i do think that this one came from japan, or at least that what they told me @ the dealership, but like all of them they are as slick as it gets so they might lied to me which it doesn't matter to me where it was made, i still love it =)

    I purchased my 4-banger 2012 Pre Runner SR5 Double Cab 6 lug 7 months ago. So ALL the post claiming there isn't such a model needs to refresh their Toyota knowledge. I wouldn't had even thought of another truck with the cost of gas

    The MPGs aren't much different with the double cab. Also if MPGs are a real concern then a truck isn't the right vehicle.

    That`s debatable, it all depends what you need a truck for.... i mean i need it mine for home stuff and to carry a couple of floor machines, that's about it so i really don't need anything stronger than what i have
