Idk it can only tow 2k pounds. My Pilot will tow 5k and hold 7 people. Get a used trailer off Craigslist’s and you can haul whatever you need.

I like the looks tho.
the add on of the tow package (725$) ... you can tow up to 4000lbs.


I would use the term "truck" there VERY loosely with it's 4 foot or whatever bed there
I sorta get the appeal, for what it is, but it's barely a truck IMO
I have learned pretty quickly that the truck community is really big on gatekeeping. If it has a bed, its a truck. This is technically a "mid-sized truck" and its the cheapest on the market in 2022. "but it doesn't have a v8, its not a full-size, it's not a diesel, it's not lifted" lol

I was doing some comparisons and most ram 1500 classic with nice specs and the normal 1500 with decent specs are around 40k and up. This isn't for everyone but its a nice turn of the page to see a "truck" in an affordable price range. My current truck is a gen 3 ram 1500 which I was given. 18 years ago it cost 23k, now an equivalent model is 40-50k

2 completely different types of trucks. The Mustang is like an SUV with a small bed and limited towing capacity. If you're only comparing on the final price instead of type of truck then the Tacoma because it's proven vs an entirely new vehicle in it's first year of production.

right I’m comparing the OTD price of how I would spec it. I’m a value motivated shopper and always have been.

also the Tacoma is similar in dimensions.

Yeah definitely not what i'd consider a truck. It is good for the target audience though. My friend is for sure buying one when they come out. Its basically an SUV with an open bed, so my preference would be just to get an SUV and have secured cargo area that can lock, but to each their own
