For some reason I am looking at trucks to haul around my imaginary dirtbike. And then I decided to have a look at Toyota’s offerings and... at least in CAD the Tacoma and Tundra base models are separated by less than $1000. The Tacoma comes with a 2.7 L 4-cyl and the Tundra has a 5.7 L V8. 160 vs 380 HP, and 180 vs 400 torque!

Would anyone spring for the Tacoma in stock form, and why? I’m not trolling, just trying to figure out its place in the lineup given Toyota’s pricing.
