unless they sell it at high teen's/low 20's I'm not interested at all. I mean, except for better approach and departure angles, I don't see how it does one thing better than a stock Taco. In fact, you lose a lot of utility by giving up your bed. It better be cheap or I don't see how they are going to sell.
I like the retro styling. The old FJ grill, and Toyota spelled out across the front, and the white roof with a real roof rack. I think in time it will grow on me more. I do have a few concerns, one is visibility. The windows are really small which isn't great for off road. Other good news though is the approach and departure angles are better than the Taco and 4runner. I like the bare bones interior. Nothing fancy just lots of space for gear, and easy to clean out after a day in the mud. I think Toyota will sell every one they make with no problem.
Toyota says the pricing will be "very low". Let's hope so. I think the next few years will be interesting for the compact 4x4 market. Afordable 4 wheeling is making a comback which is good for consumers. Look for a war with the new Jeep TJ, Hummer with the new H4, Toyota, Ford with a new Bronco, and Landrover with a new affordable and capable 4x4. All good for us!!
