    it seems they are shedding more light on it

    http://content.usatoday.com/communi...yover-engines-audio-interior-on-sale-monday/1

    a better backup camera and sport models with side mirror turn signals... a bit off topic but anyone care about new trucks nowadays? I sometimes think the people who only talk about buying next years model are really just that- people who talk- seriously where does everyone get their money here?

    it looks like dark blue is making a comeback? nice. maybe we will get a purple this year

    I really do think I like the front of my 2011 better. If all the 2012 gets is a new bumper and grill, I wonder if the new TRD side mirrors with built-in turn signals will fit my 2011. That would be pretty cool.

    Yup, I was gonna buy a brand new one, but no SWB so they lost this customer.

    Great idea, replace SWB with nautical blue, which looks almost exactly like the other dark blue that's out that nobody likes. :confused:

    Haha sorry I raged a little at the no speedway blue in 2012. I actually like the dark blue :D it's just not one of their better-selling colors.

    I just don't see why they felt the need to make two nearly identical colors.
