    Uh, I cruise at 85 pulling my boat without a problem, with my I4. ;) Just because of the name doesn't necessarily mean it isn't good. My I4 has a max pull weight of 6500lbs, which is a pretty big boat. The new I4's are as strong, if not stronger, than the previous generation Tacoma's 3.4L V6.

    The Chevy Silverado's have a max towing weight at 10,300lbs for a V8. The Tacoma's max towing weight is 6500 for the I4. Cylinder for cylinder, the Tacoma's I4 is stronger and more powerful than the V8. (Again, cylinder for cylinder.) ;)

    Yeah well on that belief the B16's 100 HP per litre would put a 5.7 litre v8 at "should be having" 570 hp......

    I'm referring to towing capacity, not HP. :)

    You said more powerful. If you want to step outside of hp, only truck specific inline 4's will have any amount of torque. Most car I4's have less torque, so lets drop I4? Besides would rather have the deisel hilux no? j/k

    Towing capacity is affected by alot more than the motor, transmission is a big limit as well. Not all that familiar with toyota's puddle jumpers though.

    Not offering Navigation as an option from introduction isn't a very smart move, IMO. Especially considering that you can get it on a Sonata!

    A lot of new car buyers want the NAV. Personally, I'd rather just spend a few hundred bucks on a high-end Garmin, but that's just me. There is definitely a demand for built-in navigation systems though.
