    In general what?

    I'm just asking you a question that you aren't answering now. No need to get hostile just because you can't back up your statement.

    Is it that hard to explain lol. Less moving parts means less stuff to fix if things go wrong. Now stop trying to start up an argument. I have a v6 and I don't have any complaints but for those who have the 4cyls still have advantages.

    Ok Mr. combustion engine engineer. Damn extra maintenance on your 185K mile V6. You would clearly be rich had you bought the 4 banger due to all the replacement parts needed to run a V6.

    Food for thought: a rotary engine has fewer moving parts than a reciprocating engine yet it is very unreliable and burns a lot of oil. Hmmm...

    I was taught that any inline engine is stronger because the pistons are less stress on the crank. And less wear and tear. The crankshafts are stronger then a "V" whether they be a 6,8,10 what ever

    I respect all tacos too, its just that smartass wanted to prove how big his dick was by randomly throwing facts in my face. I don't get why people just love to create pointless arguments. Lol

    I'm happy with my 2009 Tacoma 4x4. I have the 2.7 l 4 cyl... I tow a small bass boat and haul small loads. It's a fine little truck!! However, I really miss my 2002 Tundra with that 4.7 I- Force V-8. That truck would really move out!!

    I have a 15 ft Starcraft Aluminum boat powered by a Nissan 9.8 hp outboard.... with gear etc... I'm thinking around 1300 lbs max. I just got back from a fishing trip (White Lake, Ontario Canada). 800 miles round trip!! Pulled and hauled boat/gear and got 23 mpgs!! The Tundra would get 18 mpgs (towing the same boat) just miss that I-force V-8.

    The absolute only thing I dislike about my 2016 4 door i4 taco is the acceleration past 50mph or so. However traveling from Santa Ana, ca to Santa Clarita, ca my taco said I was averaging 32mpg going 70-75. That kicks ass any day if you ask me.

    Toyota trucks powered by 4,6 or 8 cylinders are all great!! I just wish Toyota would make a diesel in both the Tacoma and Tundra.

    Thats impressive mpg alright..... but i like passing safely

    I should say that acceleration past 50 is not deathly slow IMO. Would it be nice to accelerate faster? Yes. But it does just fine. Unless you have a limited lane for passing like going up to Big Bear passing, for me, is good.

    Actually highway 46 and 41 out by shandon ca is very dangerous, 46 is the highway james dean died on to be honest. Theres alot of fatalities there. So, ill take my 350hp 20mpg tacoma over a 4cyl for safety sake.
