Someone at work brought it up at work last week. I did a few searches here and there and came up with...well...not much.

But here is this vague nonsense I have been able to gather.

Main new feature is the V6 engine option. Displacement is town to 3.5L but horsepower is up to 260. This is up from the 237hp on the current 4.0L V6. I have found no mention of torque figures.

Fuel economy is rumored to be 26 MPG with a direct injection V6. No mention if this is with the crew cab and a 6' bed or not. I doubt it.

A mention of overall lowered height with no sacrifice to ground clearance for better aerodynamics. No other mention from what I have been able to find on overall dimensions, but I predict a smaller interior and maybe the loss of the 6' bed option, which would be a big mistake in my opinion.

I thought there was a chance Toyota would offer a diesel option on a redesign. I have not been able to find even a hint at this.

Other than the offering of a diesel, I didn't really expect much out of a redesign other than a new engine with mildly better MPG. I'm sure the interior will be fitted with in dash GPS as well as connectivity for any media player you want to plug in. How much can they really offer outside of the engine?

I own a '07 crew cab long bed (6') with '80k-ish miles and I love the thing, except for the sub-par brakes, it is perfect for me and my dog.

Anyone care to offer information or an opinion/speculation on the redesign?

Thank you for your time.

I have a sneaky suspicion that overall interior cab volume will decrease across all options, and perhaps the option of a 6' bed will be eliminated. Just my suspicions. No hard data.

What say you? Care to speculate?

Pure speculation is it will upsize to a half ton.

The ecoboost and pentastar will make the compact truck category obsolete,


Rumor has it they fixed the leaf spring squeak and gave it ballsy brakes and work lights.

What is the conversion rate between detailed mpg and standard mpg? Do I have to consider the regarding torsion, or is that covered in the lift throughout potency?

I haven't heard anything about any significant changes for the Taco. Tundra, 4Runner, and Corolla get updates for '14. The Corolla is a huge change; the others are generally cosmetic. The '14 Tundras are inbound now. I should be able to get behind the wheel of the new Toyotas in the next week I'm sure. ;)

I was behind the wheel of 8 Tacos, 4 Tundras, a Rav 4 and a Camry today, by the way.

I have an 11. I want a diesel. I want them to stop messing with diesel and I want them to build some damn cars with it.

And the supply and demand thing I am sure someone is going to spit in here is skewed because they have screwed with diesel to make it 'clean' and now somehow diesel has to cost more than gas.
