Do the new Tacos still have the low seat height? The driving a car feel killed it for us a few years ago.
I was highly considering the 4Runner as it is very reliable and good off road. At this point I have it down to ZR2, Ranger or 4Runner. Having a pickup bed is useful though over the SUV.
I am a bit biased, but I still vote Ram Rebel:
2021 Ram 1500, ,T25452,Crew Cab, from Hoblit Chrysler Jeep Dodge, Inc. in Woodland, CA, 95695-3204. Call 530-405-9416 for more information.www.hoblitdodge.com
$45K for this particular example. It is a base model Rebel with zero additional options, but still comes reasonably well-equipped.
Get a 4Runner and be done with it. You'll never regret the purchase, nobody who has owned one that I personally know has ever regretted the purchase. They are rock solid dependable, rugged, and hold their resale value well.
As for purchasing a first year model of a total redesign, I don't recommend that anybody do that, even on a Toyota product. There are always teething pains.
