Trust me! I have asked the same question.Yeah that truck has been around for such a long time. I'm surprised Toyota never brought the name over to America.
That's true there's no need to mess up a good thing. Though I wonder if they ever considered using the Hilux name as a trim level for the Tacoma lol.Trust me! I have asked the same question.
It might have to do with Tacoma sales being so strong, Why bother launching another pickup when one already serves a similar crowd and leads the segment while doing it?
Then they have the Tundra.
