    I appologize, I did use the search function but couldn't get the answer to my question..

    Why do newer Tacoma double cabs with 6-speed manual transmissions have a shorter bed than the automatic double cabs? Thanks..

    Cheers.

    The automatics come in a double cab short bed too. The 6-speed is just not offered on the double cab long beds. I believe toyota claimed there wasn't enough market or something.

    In canada, the short beds are only available in 6 speeds. Don't know why, but that is the way it is.
