    Silver would be my pick since inferno is no longer offered. Are you looking to get a short or long bed?

    Tacoma1845: I think the silver will probably be my choice I’m a sucker for silver cars. And I am looking at a short bed so I can get the double can. That way my kids and passengers will have a little more room.

    I’m sure you can haggle those prices down. I got my SR5 for $27k with %0.9 financing. I am just modding it how I want when I have extra cash.

    Sounds good. Just saying, if you are thinking about a long bed the cabs are the same size weather if it is a short or long bed.

    Yes, the double cab is the same on both long and short bed, though finding a LB double may be more of a challenge.

    My Taco is silver, and although it was not the color I went in thinking I wanted, I am very happy with it. Dirt is not as easy to see and the lighter color reduces the sun's impact on temperature.

    If you are flexible on the color you will have more bargaining ammo than if you are set one a particular color. Play the salesman with noncommittal responses on an evening at the end of the month.

    I have a 2018, I have not had the transmission problems others have had. Enjoy the new truck whatever you decide to get. Tacoma World has a way of getting you to buy things you never knew existed.

    As others have said the price difference isn't much in the long run. Ill admit the comments started running together so not sure if someone mentioned a new cars interest rate is substantially better than used, so there's a strong chance it's a wash in the end. Had a friend that spend 3k less on his used truck and his payment was $50 higher than my brand new one... You do the math

    If you can wait, the 2020 comes with a bunch of stuff I wish I had... Like Android auto and passenger side entry, standard. These seem dumb but I cant tell you how much better the Google maps is than entune and when I want to be a gentleman I have to fumble with my fob to let her in...
