    FYI - I accidentally left off the Jeep Gladiator from the DougScoring at the end. I prefer the Gladiator over the Tacoma TRD Pro, and the Gladiator has a higher DougScore (24 + 33 = 57); I simply forgot about the Jeep when I was scoring the Tacoma.

      Doug Shut up the Gladiators Uconnect system is horrible and Toyota 's Entune audio is better than Uconnect which has problems.

      I just did a video of my buddies Tacoma’s...a 2018 TRD off-road and a 2019 TRD pro!!! These trucks are incredibly capable!!! Great video.

        You forgot the quirk of having 1960's drum brakes in the rear.

          How is a gold standard truck one of the lowest scoring on your scale?

            The etc power pretty much gives you better acceleration. I figured this out because my friend presses the button when he wants to drive a bit faster or pull out of a stop quicker

                  Toyota needs to walk over to FCA and have them put in some Uconnect, Jeep dash material, and Dodge seats. Then look at that weirdly underpowered engine. Then this thing would be great. Hell even put some spotlights in the "scoop".

                    All Toyotas have Toyota sensing now. The new Accord LXs have ACC (Adaptive Cruise Control) and manual seats.

                                  I think they put that exhaust tip on is to satisfy the whiners who miss the V8 sounds. There is a Raptor version, but it is only available in Europe. But I think it's coming to the U.S. soon, but I don't really know for sure.

                                          Sorry Doug, not everyone. This is not my favorite. Styling alone kicks this thing out of the top spot. The Americas are doing a far better job.

That alone killed it for me.The reason that it is "old and new" is because Toyota does not want to spend the money fully updating their trucks. The Tundra ( which I owned) is horribly dated. Same with this and the 4runner. They are very durable and reliable. I never had one issue with my Tundra in 10 years. If your going to do heavy off-roading this is the choice. I do not so I got the Honda Ridgeline. Better payload capacity, drives like a luxury car and the interior and features blow this away for the same money. No it does not tow quite as much ( but most never tow anything) and it is not going to go boulder climbing but in every other way it's a better value. Better acceleration and MPG as well.
