I apologize for multiple truck posts but I wanted to put everything in one post. I've narrowed down my choices and am quite surprised what I have found. 2019 Tacoma - TRD Offroad Price: $35,500 (internet price) Built well, but the worst engine/transmission combination I've ever driven. I'm surprised how bad it is and it certainly matches up well with what others have been saying. 2019 Colorado Z71 Sticker Price: $38k - best price dealer could do is $36,900 Loved this truck. Looks great, and the engine/transmission was superior to the Tacoma. Interior is a little Fisher Price'sh which is typical for GM. My concern is the transmission, however I talked to 2 technicians that said the fluid they are using now fixes it (not sure I agree) and they also said they are not getting any failures, just the "shudder". Priced too high. 2019 Frontier Pro-4x $33k I was blown away by this truck, especially because it hasn't changed in over 15 years! The 4.0V6 has great torque and the powerband is smooth. Transmission is so much smoother than the Tacoma. While the looks are dated, both inside and out, the materials inside were on par or better than the Toyota. It is no wonder this truck continues to sell. Next up will be the Ridgeline, but it's definitely not going to be my choice. I'm pretty set on the Frontier. I wrote that truck off years ago. After test driving it, I really like it. It drove significantly better than the Tacoma. Any reason not to the go with the dated Frontier? I don't care about all the technology they are adding to cars today. My priorities are - reliability, drivability and performance. The Nissan also has a rear locker.
