    Manual Tranmissions

    Thread Starter: Steve Demuth

    As nearly as I can tell, the only option left for a pickup truck with a manual transmission is a V6 Toyota Tacoma. This makes me feel like a real anachronism. I strongly favor manuals in my trucks. I'm looking at replacing a 2008 Tacoma potentially, and if I'm reading the cards right, I'd...
