    Ill be in the market for a new truck this fall. But possibly sooner if I can get my current truck sold. But, if theres something worth waiting for, I will. Ive searched the web. And came up with a frame upgrade (stronger and lighter), And talks of yet another new engine, but no speculation as to what it may be. I just recently started cruising the forum, and doing my homework on the tacoma (will be my first ever), So I figured that you guys that have followed them alot longer might have more information.

    Just get what you want. Doubtful anything big will be coming in 2018. I'd except changes around 2020.

    Sounds like that Safety Sense stuff will be added in 2018 and I agree there will probably be a refresh coming when the New Ranger Comes out, 2019-2020 time frame.

    It will likely be a mid cycle refresh at best but I still wouldn't expect too much. Safety sense is one of those things I can take or leave. I mean, it's good to have but I wouldn't pass up on a good deal to wait 6 months on it.

    I like a little bit of tech. But too much just makes me cringe at thinking of repair costs later down the road. I kinda find it odd, and pleasing, that the pro uses an actual key. Im almost sold on a pro because of it.

    Safety sense is rumored but it will not be any different other than that. If you want to buy now, buy now.

    I wouldn't be too worried about push button start. That's probably the least of your worries in today's vehicles.

    As long as it is a Manual it will have a Key, that way you can use the Clutch Cancel Switch as designed.

    Thats good news. The only manual truck they had on the lot was a pro. I made a comment about it actually having a key, and the salesman kinda pitched it as only the pro had a key and the OR and Sport were fob.

    You can always have an aftermarket push to start kit installed. Not OEM but some companies do a great job on making it look stock. I've only seen these on 05-15 though so you'll have to do your research.

    Unfortunately some Salespeople have no idea what's going on.

    yeah, used a kit like that on my Yaris, loved it. (was actually Parts from Toyota that were used in the Yaris in Japan) I'm less concerned about push to start and would be more inclined to find a kit for proximity door locks
