    I have a 1st generation (99) Tacoma that is the best vehicle I've ever owned. Super durable and simple. but- it is time for a much newer Tacoma. So- what year is the newest model I can buy with manual windows, locks and transmission with either the 4 or 6 cylinder engine?

    I think 2015. I’ve got a 2014 single cab 4cylinder, 5 speed 4x4 with manual everything. Absolutely love my truck. Im probably wrong about the year but pretty sure it’s 2015.

    Welcome to the forum. @Corey_Hicks is correct. 2015 was the last year for the second gens and the last year of the regular cab that offered manual windows and a 5 speed with a 2.7 liter.
    Access and double cabs had power windows and door locks even on the second gens IIRC. Even in the base model.

    I have an 18 Manual but the rest is auto. Not sure if windows and locks are important to you. The key is still a metal key. It’s a v6 but you can get a 4 CYL too I think.

    I really liked driving a 4 CYL manual when I was younger makes for a fun truck!

    Confirmed. Mine is a ‘15 access cab, and power locks/windows were standard. If you could find a regular cab that year, they still had manual locks windows standard.

    I couldn't stand manual locks and windows in the Ranger.

    I wouldn't mind the driver's window being manual but the other 3 windows would be a PITA...

    My 94 Toy P/U had manual windows but ya don't have to lean very much to roll down the other side. Haha!

    I liked my ranger but agree about the locks. Put your arm on the top of the door and it would pinch the hell out of me

    Trying to act cool leaning out the window talking to a girl then you get the pinch and it’s almost worse of a feeling than setting on your testicles

    Thanks to all who replied. I'm leaning toward the 2015 access cab with the manual transmission. Power window are OK, just prefer the simplicity of manual. I keep my rigs a long time and have found manual is more dependable in the long run.

    Nothing wrong with that! Toyota is the only vehicles that I've ever had power windows in. Don't trust the rest of them. Haha
    Good luck in your searches!
