IntelliChoice named Model 2006, a "smart choice" in ten different categories of ownership costs, and distinguished himself in 2006 i-280 Extended Cab S as the "winner" in-class low repair costs.

For 2007, the I-280 4x2 Extended Cab least-290 and I-350 Crew Cab 4x4 is renamed I-370th trim levels remain unchanged: the in-290 is available in base S finish, with Preferred Equipment, LS and luxury packages optional, and I-370 is available in LS or optional Limited trim. Both cars have larger engines and more powerful. Changes for model year 2007:
