the people who think a 70 is a better pickup either dont use pickups or are dreamers of one sort or another.
say you need a one ton for a job...
f350 6.7 diesel or a seventy series.... really? if you think they compare, youre an idiot.
there isnt a single statistic, including longevity, that the 70 will beat it. a 70 wont carry near the same load, wont tow the same load, wont be as comfortable... nothing. its a small heavy duty truck in place that has no use for a small heavy duty truck because we have the space to use large heavy duty trucks.
its just a bunch of people that want what they cant have here, and wouldnt buy one when presented with the price tag and the reality that they dont have a single use for it besides the fun of answering gawker questions while picking up a load of mushroom manure, that would have fit just as well in a ford ranger. if toyota rolled this out they would have an edsle on their hands and they know it.
im not sure who the bigger wannabe is, the guy that has the 1/2 ton quad cab king ranch, or the people that keep bemoaning the 70 series, as if they have a use a tacoma wouldnt fill anyway.
