But it seems it might not be the end of the world after all. Reportedly, Scion is looking at expanding its product lineup, and a small pickup might be part of that mix. Whether it will be some car-based, unibody crossover thingamajigger, or a true, body-on-frame pickup is anyone's guess, but there would sure be a lot of happy Mini Truckers if Scion simply offered a re-badged first-gen Taco, maybe with an upgraded motor (2.7L), but otherwise, compact, simple, and straightforward.
Here's your chance to sound off about what you'd like to see if Scion offered a true mini truck once again. Let us know your thoughts! What engine would you like to see? Bed/cab configurations? 2WD only, or 4x4 too? What price should they offer it at?
