    "As popular as the Tacoma is, it has some persistent flaws. The truck's ground clearance is a boon off-road, but the high floor makes for an awkward splay-legged seating position. The low roofline meant several of us were constantly hitting our heads over bumps and craning our necks to see traffic lights."

    Are all these testers 6'5" +?

    Meh. They do a good job of pointing of the merits of each.

    "Taken on its own, the Tacoma is still a perfectly fine truck. It's handsome, capable and has the segment's best build quality. Historically, Tacomas have held their value better than nearly anything else around. There's a seemingly endless amount of aftermarket support for it, too, if that's your thing. The top-of-the-line Tacoma TRD Pro is up there with the Colorado ZR2 and Gladiator Rubicon in terms of off-road equipment and prowess, but even the TRD Sport is plenty rugged. It's also right there with the Chevy when it comes to ride quality both on the road and off. It just can't match the other trucks when it comes to things such as comfort or powertrain refinement. Towing and cargo volume aren't competitive, either"

    After bashing it on some fair points, this paragraph explains why it's popular. Many of us don't get the Tacoma for the bells and whistles. I, for one, specifically purchased it because of reliability and resale. The rest of the stuff was less important.

    I think Dodge up until recently had the Ram diesel available with a manual on the base model.

    You wouldn’t buy a pair of pants that don’t fit why would you buy a truck that is to small for you?

    And of course, I try not think about all those 79-series those wankers get down under.

    No other mid-size truck even remotely interests me.
