Thats part of what makes a lot of us shine a used truck and go for a new one. Why spend that much on an old taco, with old low tech, way less cab room, and lesser safety. Theyre great trucks but im not going to drop north of 10k on one with even 150k. It makes no sense, id rather drop 35-40k on a new one with zero miles, a warranty, butt heaters, and car play as well as a much higher crash rating and interior space. Theres nothing wrong with havingthe interior be nicer and more comfy and functional with gadgetry that is actually worth paying for. Hell, my truck is a cadillac inside, interior isnt over the top but is nice enough, very comfy, spacious (way more than a tacoma, a deal breaker for me, hated the crampness and driving position) and the gadgetry works well. For me to not hate that stuff is saying something. Its a roadtrip machine, just plop the camper on and im devouring miles in comfort en route to somewhere fun.
