    Well yeah, I'm talking within reason, normal pump gas, not race gas.

    Just purchased a 2017 Tacoma with the 3.5l V-6. It does have a different feel than other V-6 and V-8 engines. However, once you "floor it" this little truck really moves out.
    Kinda reminds me of my 2002 Tundra i-force 4.7l V-8.

    Had an 03 tundra for 13 years best truck ever and loved the torque . It would be awesome to have a 4.7 in my new taco .that would be the balls ! :eek:

    My 02 Tundra was a beast!! That 4.7l i-force really made that truck move!!

    However, I'm really enjoying the ride and features of my Tacoma. Only time will tell if my new Tacoma performs like the Tundra over "long term" ownership.

    That will go away after a couple of update. I was going crazy when I first got mine, now I love it, noise is gone.

    Funny I just made this reference yesterday.
    But still wouldn’t prefer a Prius over my truck, welcome to the forum!

    I'm still waiting for problems on my 2017 OR. Everyone is making me paranoid lol. I've got 3 recall letters in the mail, all minor junk. I've had 0 problems with any of their recalls. No ticking, no axle wrap, no excessive shifting. Pretty all around smooth truck to me. It must be a hit or miss problem with taco owners.

    Some of the issues are variants on geography. Excessive shifting and gear hunting has been a problem for folks that live in the mountains and hilly regions. Those that drive on flat roads all the time won’t notice it. Take it into the hills and over mountains and you’ll notice it more. Axshole wrap happens more with lots of stop and go traffic. Complete stops pause and then a bump. Again if your in the country on flat ground with no stop lights you’re probably not going to notice it. The ticking is just a Toyota engine thing I’ve always driven toyota trucks and don’t notice that.
