    Yup. And also twice the truck. Just depends on what you need vs. want.

    Kinda sorta.

    Waiting on Dad to decide what hunting ATV he wants. He is laid up with a back issue but the season starts soon. If he wants a trailer that Chevy will work great. If he wants it in the bed the Ford would be better. I would rather have the Ford for a sled bed but my single place trailer works great even at tight trailheads

    Like I posted above, if you're going anywhere off pavement the PSD will be an absolute pig with the turning radius of the Queen Mary.

    Sometimes I find owning a full size truck to be a pain in the ass.
    Other times Iím stoked on the ability to go full junk show.
    Case in point: 2,400 lbs, 17í long. Fortunately I only needed to go 6 miles...

    Trucks.

    After about 17 years with a work truck, I just bought my first pickup.
    2012 Toyota Tundra Crewmax with the Platinum trim package. 96,000km for a 7yo truck is pretty good, and the saddle-brown leather is gorgeous.

    Nice, CA.

    They should offer saddle brown leather in every rig ever made. I've got the usual tan leather in my Super Duty and my 80 and it's way less practical because it shows dirt and smudges so easily.

    Trucks.

    Thoughts on Tacomas? Considering going with a newer Sport model. Donít need serious off-roading capability but would like to be able to access most 14er or 13er trailheads in CO, be able to haul three mountain bikes and be able to drive in deep snow.

    Donít get anything newer than a 2015. The 3rd gens are garbage (2016+). Read up on the well documented issue with no power, constant shifting transmissions, diff leaks...

    I have a 2016. Engine is ok, trans sucks. upgraded to ov tune mapping and so much better now. Tip in on throttle is responsive. Tow a camper around the CO mountains and does pretty good. Get on tacoma world forum and read up. The size of truck is perfect for me, full size is just too big IMO for my use. Upgraded from 4 runner since wanted a spot for the muddy/wet dogs in rear and tow a small camper.

    people like to bitch about the turd gens.

    Hard to argue with the LC guy, but garbage seems like a stretch. Only had mine two years, but it's been solid. Last tranny flash made a big difference. Power is there, you just gotta use a lot of pedal. It drives like every other Japanese car trying to squeeze mileage out of nothing. Read up on any new truck, and you'll find yourself waist deep in horror stories and talk of class action suits.
    Remind me. We'll send him a red cap and a Speedo.

    I had a 2019 for 8 months. Was very glad to trade it on a tundra. Get similar mileage, nicer interior, better visibility (that hood is so hard to see over!), rides more comfortably (both TRD off road) and for mountain driving have an additional 100 horsepower and torques down low makes a huge drivability difference. The Tacoma I ended up driving with the cruise control most of time, it was miserable otherwise.

    That said, the tundra is big. But I have Land Cruisers for off roaring so itís less of a concern.

    Iíd do a 13 - 15 low mile Tacoma over a 16. Tried and true drivetrain with similar horsepower as the 3.5 but actually where you need it, down low in the RPM range.

But going off pavement was not what it was good at. It could do it, but compared to a gasser with a shorter wheel base, no comparison.

    I like the Tundras but live in the city and donít need the size. Tacoma is as big as Iíd need. Surprised to hear about the transmission issues with the newer Tacomas. Any other issues?
    Are there other small reliable pickups I should be looking at? Not a fan of Ford FWIW.

    Trucks.

    Iíd get a 2015 Tacoma. Or if you go third gen, (2016+) plan on either a manual transmission or to get the truck regeared and a tune, even with stock tire size.

    If you plan on keeping it for a long time, Iíd be cautious with the turbo motor in the Ford.

    Colorado is another consideration, havenít done too much research on them.

    Serious, go out and drive the Tacoma, Co, and Ford to get a feel for it. I drove the Colorado back when shopping and it felt like a car to me. If I did it again, would have gone manual but wife drive it the first couple years and she wanted the auto.

    An opinion that you almost certainly don't want to hear: none of your stated requirements scream "needs a truck." Plenty of other options out there that will be much better for the stuff you'll be using it for 90% of the time than a body on frame vehicle. If you must have a truck, and Ford and Toys are out, Chevy makes a "Colorado", presumably because it's the vehicle required to do "Colorado" things.

    What he actually wants is a Land Cruiser with a North Shore rack
