    No. Hilux is the rest of the worlds version of the Tacoma, they are different trucks and aimed at different markets.

    The next Tacoma and Tundra will share the same platform. :facepalm:

    Not sure where you heard this, but that's not true.
    Maybe the ways in which they're designed / features / structures, but it's not possible to fully share a platform between two completely different sizes (widths and wheelbases).

    Nothing confirmed, but all leaks suggest it.

    ah, yeah I think the word "underpinning" is a little misleading / unclear. I'm sure they may have similar components as Toyota is moving to "TNGA - Global Architecture" but no way they're the 'same'. You can infer from that article, though, that similarly sized vehicles across the world may share the same platform, though.

    It is a shame Toyota doesn't offer those here.

    Simply put, all the body on frame vehicles from Toyota will share a frame design that will be tweaked to accommodate different vehicle sizes.
