My son has a 2005 Taco ext. cab with a 2.7 4cyl. It gets 22 mpg on the highway, not very economical. It is bigger than a Ranger, but the road noise is loud(not mud tires). Decent truck, just don't sit too much on the tailgate.

Congrats, what are the specs on your Taco? If I was in the market for a new truck it would either be another Ranger, or a late model Taco.

BTW now you can go to the Taco boards and tell them you came from a Ranger and watch as the Ranger shit talk comments pile up. ALOT of the 05+ Tacoma owners on those forums are arrogant douschebags who laugh at Ranger owners and act like it's some major f*cking bragging-rights accomplishment to own a truck with technology 10 years newer and $10 grand pricier than the Ranger technology. Some of those smug fanboys need to be bitch slapped.

They are great trucks. My dad had a bad ass 4 door 4wd black tacoma. Bought it with 50,000 miles for 17,500 and sold it with 110,000 a year and a few later for 16,000. Thats good damn resale.

No kidding!
My neighbors the street below mine are that way. Three of them have Tacoma's and everytime I drive by (which I have to to get to the main road) they yell $hi7. Its funny because they are all the definition of white trash sitting in their garage (on weekdays?? Get a job!) staring at people who drive by
Its the old section of homes in our suburbs filled with white trash and lots of mexicans (who seem to be pretty nice).

my friends dad got one and it seems pretty nice! MUCH larger than the ranger and has no problems screeching around turns a little sideways

(but neither does my ranger )

I test drove a Tacoma and a Frontier before I bought my Ranger. Then i started thinking pay more for parts with the Japanese vehicles or cheaper parts for a Ranger. Besides I have always had good luck with a Ford my next vehicle is going to be an F-450.

imo you cannot compair the older taco's to the new ones. The 22r was an amazing motor... not saying the 4.0's are terrible, but they arnt amazing either.

I looked at a few 2 years ago when I bought my f150. At the time, I would have paid more for that than I did for my 04 (nbs) ext cab lariat 4x4 f150.. which had every option at the time.

Midsize FTL. If I were to ever upgrade to another truck from my Ranger, I would just get another full size. But, since I already got one, I'd rather just get an Explorer
