    i have a magnetic grey color!! BADASS!! they dont made the radiant red for the 09 but the darker Barcelona Red. If they had a radiant red for 09, i would have consider it. Hard to find a truck with that bright red!! Almost like a fire engine!!

    I looked it up for 09 its actually called Barcelona Red Metallic.

    Close to Radiant I have heard.

    The MG looks great, but I prefer my Radiant Red more.:)

    Ive been wanting to purchase a tacoma for the past 2 years. I had decided on radiant red. As time went on and the 2009's came out, new colors were released. I went to the dealer and looked at 2008 radiant red, 2009 barcelona red, and magnetic gray. The fact that the star system was on the 09's and the XM radio, also the back up camera feature sold me on an 09. As far as color went, I chose magnetic gray. I do prefer radiant red, but for an 09 model I prefer the magnetic gray over barcelona red.:D

    yah, no radiant red for 09! I like the gray, but EVERYONE buys gray cars/trucks. Go red. I get so many complements on my truck, and id probably blend in if it were gray

    Dont get me wrong - the gray is amazing too.. ive been really impressed with the color pallet that Toyota has developed.

    I'm personally not a fan of red on a truck.

    Hmm, I've hardly seen any Magnet Greys out there..... So far.
