I’m hoping for a new 6G Ranger (SuperCrew/longbed please), but it’s always good to have options. The current gen Tacoma is a cramped, dated truck with horrible ergonomics and underwhelming drivetrain. I don’t understand at all why it’s the top seller in the midsize class either? Anyhow, Toyota has a ton of improvements to make before I’d ever consider buying one.

We'll have to see how the interior turns out, but chassis and powertrain should be well sorted- Fully boxed, rear coil frame, that's basically identical to the 4Runner and Prado, and the T24/10speed should be as well sorted as in the Tundra. Honestly my biggest hangup with the Ranger is with what Ford did to their employees in 2021.

what did Ford do to their employees in 2021? I must have missed something.

Should be out after the Ranger, next January. Two rivals making a big impact for 2024.
