    Any thoughts on the timeline for the next gen Taco being changed due to prodution being moved to San Antonio. Would it make more sense to start production of an all new Taco, and not have to change from the current model to a new one in a year or 2. I believe the Taco "was" scheduled for a redesign for 2012. Could it be pushed back due to the change in production location as well. Just a thought.

    Hopefully it won't have the same lines as the front end on the new 2010 4runner....but it probably will. toyota.com has it up. not a fan.

    The 2010 4Runner still looks better then the Aussie Hilux. The grill and lights are a little small though. Makes it difficult to build a decent looking aftermarket bumper to fill the huge space of the stock one.

    I would think around 2012-2013ish if history holds true.

    Like the new looks on 4runner. I thought it looks better than the last model. If you get top of the line it will be like 40,000 dollar. :eek: Way too much money.

    I have a feelin the change is gona mess up there redesign because of the switch in prodution locations big time. I would rather Not have them Rush the redesign and be stuck with a butt load of TSB's.

    wow, i have not seen the new 4 runner until now......

    I personally think it looks like garbage. those taillights that bulge out..... not a fan of it at all. Toyota could have done better. JMO

    Had tons on the old Taco's.... new Tundra is pretty stock
    I kinda want to see a few years until a new Tacoma. That way I wont have to buy one yet! :p Anyways, yeah, it probably will have similar lines to the new 4runner..... not sure about liking that.
