Default Toyota pricing for redone 2012 Tacoma compact pickup



Quote:
Toyota today announced pricing for its 2012 Tacoma compact pickup, which has refreshed sheet metal and a new interior (see our earlier post with details of the Tacoma redo here).Toyota's renewed commitment to the top-selling compact pickup is in contrast to Ford and GM. Ford has discontinued the Ranger in the U.S., even though it has a new model that it will sell in other global markets. And GM is dropping the current Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon, though it has said it may bring the redesigned global version to the U.S. later.

The 2012 Tacoma continues to be available in three cab types -- regular, an extended "Access Cab" and a four-door "Double Cab" -- in 4x2 and 4x4 configurations.

Base prices will range from $16,875 for a regular cab 4x2 with the 2.7-liter four-cylinder and five-speed manual to $27,835 for the Double Cab 4x4 long bed with the 4.0-liter V-6 and a five-speed automatic. The price are up -- ranging from 10 bucks to $645 more, depending on the configuration. All prices are plus $810 for shipping.

The 2012 Tacomas are built at Toyota's plants in san Antonio and Baja California, Mexico, and are arriving at dealers this month.

All the trash-talking about Canadians aside (whenever I bring it up ignorant people seem to just bash us for some reason), this is yet another example of how the Canadian market gets screwed on a popular vehicle. Here the most popular model of Tacoma is the 4dr 4x4 configuration and that model starts at $32, 645.

^ Nothing stopping you from buying one from the US and importing it yourself. If they are made in the US there will be no duty and would just have to pay the tax on it.

I thought there was something about cars less than 2 years old? My wife's family is in Alberta and I seem to recall them talking about it. Also, it may be partly manufacturer based. When my wife bought her Mercedes C300 in January 2008, the dealer, claiming it was a MB form, made her sign something saying she wouldn't take it out of the country for a couple years.

It's not that simple...
You need to find a dealer who will sell to you. That's tough anywhere near the border, because they get slapped on the wrist when they sell a new vehicle to someone exporting it.

So you need someone to buy the vehicle, register it, then sell it back to you. There are guys who do this for you, for $1300. Add to that the letter from Toyota for another $1500-$3000, transport, importation fees, A/C fee, and all your taxes on top, and the price comes bloody close to what we pay. For my Tundra, I could have saved $1500 by going to the US. On a $43k purchase, that wasn't worth the hassle.

Did I mention warranty issues?
You need to pay out of pocket and have Toyota USA reimburse you. Just like Subaru did a few years ago...

But hey, Jim Flaherty is looking into it.....

That's what the Canadians have been asking since NAFTA came about.
