    One category missing is ergonomics. For me the Tacoma seating position sucks (comparing to the Colorado).

    Ya, I think the Tacoma seating is terrible. Im 6’3” and my head almost bumps on the roof. The Ranger feels way more spacious because the seat can be lowered. I didn’t notice how bad the Tacoma was until I sat in each of them 15 minutes apart. That removed the Tacoma from consideration.
