05 Tacoma Crew Cab \ double cab 4wd Automatic... no 4 banger?
Im just wondering why has the 4 banger gone away from this particular class of the pickup world? I know Nissan doesnt offer one with their Frontier (not sure if they ever had a 4 banger). For those that are interested in economy and gas savings, theres no option, unless you go down to a 2wd 2dr cab. I dont even think the domestics offer such an option.
Is it because they feel the extra weight of crew cab with 4wd would stress a 4 cycl? I believe the older xtra cabs were available in the 4wd 4 cycl autos, so how much more weight would it be to go up to the crew cab? I would think with todays progress in engines, we could have a 4 cycl with more hp than those older trucks.
Any insight appreciated.
