From what I've seen an read on it (very little) I think it's gonna be a big improvement. I want to drive one, but I'm gonna hold out for a diesel.....I don't think that is too far off. There is a three page airticle in the november/december issue of Truck Trend. Mostly pictures, not many to reveal too much, and they really seem to be talking it up. Hey I'm game to own one!
Edmunds has a good article. The 05' Tacoma looks like a real winner!
I saw the specs and options on my wife's new 245 HP Tacoma 4 x 4 Double Cab and they're terrific. The TRD Option Pkg #2 was impressive (Oil and Trans Coolers, Bilsteins, Alloys, LS, Class 4 Hitch, Fogs, Tow Hooks, Heavy Duty Battery, 130 Amp Alternator, Skid Plates, etc).
Also, Traction Control (VSC)/Ascent Control, Overhead Console, 6 disc CD Changer/Mutiple Speakers (Steering Wheel Controls), Captains Seats, On Demand Electronic two speed 4 x 4 transfer case, 5 speed auto etc.
