But what are the Tundra sales like? Everyone I know that bought a Tundra around here, is going back to a Ram/GMC/Ford cause the Tundra just doesn't stand up. It may be that the Tacoma has good sales numbers cause it's the good Toyota truck.topgun said:The Toyota Tacoma still sells well. 141,365 US sales in 2012. There is a market for the right vehicle.
170,000 was back in 2007 before the economy tanked. Now that is is picking up again, the numbers are coming back up.
I bought my Dakota cause it was (1) a new design, as compared to the Dodge Rams (2) had a V6 which I thought may get better mileage than my D150 (probably would have if I'd stuck to my guns and ordered it with a 3.73 axle) & (3) was as capable as the fullsize truck, other than not being able to fit a 4' wide sheet of plywood between the wheelwells. B)
I'm awaiting Suzq' Dakota idea http://www.allpar.com/forums/topic/130500-quickchop-dodge-dakota/
