When the article starts with dismissing the ZR2 outright, it really loses credibility. It brings a front locker AND fancy go-fast suspension, and for way less, if you want an automatic and a roof (which isn’t $2295).
Given the tires that come on the TRD Pro (which are still such a cop-out) the Mojave should get a full grade better in stock form.

He also says the Tacoma hasn't been redesigned since '05... It was all new in '16. Not a very well researched article. I would have liked seeing the Bison included in the comparison as well.

Yeah, that doesn’t even make any sense. The ZR2 is kind of a combination of the TRD Pro and the Mohave. I guess they couldn’t get their hands on a press car.

It was kinda new in 2016. Same frame and front axle setup with just a slightly taller suspension. Cab was the same but has a slightly different look from door restyling. Same rear axle except for the MT and locker variants. New engine and transmissions but same transfer case.

So it was more a heavy facelift more than a redesign. I think Toyota didn't want to put too much into it because the new platform is rumored to be a Tunda/Tacoma shared design like the Titan/Frontier and the Tacoma is likely to see a shortened lifecycle for the 3G with all the competition that has roared in these past few years.
