    That's what's killing small truck's the mileage is no better then the large ones and the large big boys due to volume can be cheaper.With Ford introducing an all Aluminum F150 that will get better mileage then the Tacoma or the Frontier whats the point.Hopefully the new car based Colorado mid size which will also come in diesel will get better mileage.Toyota had the BAT hybrid small truck in development but that seems to have been on the back burner.Light duty trucks made for Europe and Austral/Asia like the new Ford Ranger are not being imported here for some jack hole reason.

    Sad, but true! Same mpg with less hauling power and weaker engines. Then they ask almost the same as the big boys with maybe 2-4K difference. Which one would you get?

    F150 Ecoboost is next. Currently drive the Tacoma w/2.7 and always average 20 mpg. Would like a little more beef with same or better mileage.
