Let’s compare some numbers:
The smallest 2006 Ford F-150 is 211 inches long.
The smallest 2016 Toyota Tacoma is 212 inches long.
There are countless trim levels and sizes for each truck, but we have to acknowledge that the current midsize Tacoma is nearly the size of a full-size truck from a decade ago. And it’s still growing.
At the Chicago Auto Show this week, the Tacoma and another shamelessly large truck, the Ram Power Wagon, showed that downsizing isn’t an option.
