Bumping this one up.
We are considering trading my wife's car (2016 Crosstrek) in and getting a 2020ish Tacoma for my driver and her taking my Outback. Anyone have experience with the newer Tacoma's? Auto, you still liking the 4runner?
I test drove a '21 Tacoma TRD Off Road. 4door, short bed. I liked it but I chose the 4Runner for 2 reasons. Back seat area is small. I wanted to be able to transport 4 people comfortably. Also, the more I thought about it, I didn't really need the bed. I don't haul stuff THAT much, and if needed I could always borrow my dad's truck.
They are still both very similar vehicles. Rock solid reliability, but dated engine, transmission and overall tech.
The 4R has been sitting for the last few months and just increasing in value. I've put 6k miles on it since I bought it. Zero issues. I can't wait to get back and drive the shit out of it.
