I found that Frontier article while I was searching for a new truck a few weeks ago and after comparing the Tacoma and Frontier I picked the Frontier for many of the reasons the writer listed.

Initially, I was all excited about the new Ford Ranger - that is until I learned they only offer an automatic transmission. Then I was back to Tacoma or Frontier and while my previous truck was a 2003 Frontier (CC, LB, 5-speed) I expected to be driving my new Tacoma today. But after driving them both it was an easy decision to go with the highly competent, less expensive, high-torque, reliable solid Frontier. I agree with others who touted the simplicity and reliability of a well-sorted design.

For me it absolutely had to be a manual transmission. I have three vehicles and they all have a clutch; sure, stop and go traffic sucks, but overall I like being a participatory driver. Plus it's a ton of fun with the V6 torque! I talked to six dealerships around me and no one had a PRO-4X manual in stock - they all had to get it from their "extended inventory" which I'm guessing was probably the same truck I ended up with.

I've had it for just over one month and couldn't be happier with my choice.
