    I love my Taco, but there are a few improvements I would like to see in the future Tacomas.

    I would like to see a factory motorized rear sliding window, six speed automatic and a little more power.

    What would you want?

    A true Limited option (leather, wood grain, nav, sunroof, heated/cooled seats, etc).

    A bigger cab, as said above. DC rear legroom is seriously lacking.

    MPG improvements. I'd like highway MPG around 25ish in a DC 4x4.

    No, I don't. But you find many of these things in GM, Ford and Ram trucks. It's 2013 and Tacoma needs to be 2013 like the other trucks.

    I just got it this month and so far I really like it. Just seems like they are overdue for upgrades and creature comforts. I realize it's a truck, but todays Big 3 trucks at least give you the option of having more.

    I guess I'm just different, the more tech in a vehicle, the more expensive it is to fix when broken.

    They have 50% of the market. Until somebody pulls buyers away they most likely wont have all the extras.
