H3 vs Tacoma

I am new to the boards, and have a question that I am sure you guys can answer. Which in your opinion is the better off road vehicle? The Toyota Tacoma, or the adventure package H3?

Thank you for your time and responses...

Re: H3 vs Tacoma

I've never wheeled with an H3.....
I did wheel a Tacoma for 3 years and loved every minute of it.

You could probably buy TWO Tacomas for the price of ONE H3. So honestly...save yourself the money and get a Tacoma. There's HUGE aftermarket support for them and you won't be disappointed.

Re: H3 vs Tacoma

Hate to break it to you but I just built both vehicles via their websites and they are pretty close in price. Mind you, I did the Toyota double cab for similar passenger capability and the TRD off-road package and towing stuff. On the H3 it was the Adventure package with towing stuff.
Toyota MSRP - $29,886

H3 MSRP - $33,110

Not that big a difference, especially when you factor in that you can only get the Tacoma double cab with an automatic. The H3 with the 5 speed manual is $31,415.

Now, if you're buying used or are willing to buy a regular cab Tacoma I can see a bigger difference in price.

Re: H3 vs Tacoma

How much wheeling do you plan on doing? Are you looking to buy new? How many people and or gear do you plan on hauling?
I love my truck.The bed is more useful than any "cargo area" of an SUV. Just something to consider. Ever try bringing home dirt in the back of an SUV?

All good points, just trying to keep things in perspective based on what we were given for info.
