Not much, however the power rating is lower than most other trucks. Although, when fuel economy and weight is combined, it feels quicker than a lot of others. see full Toyota Tacoma review

This may not be the correct category, but I disliked having to determine when I would need 4WD and being able to use 4WD feature only part-time. Not supposed to use 4WD on dry pavement or you risk damage, etc. I went with an AWD Honda Ridgeline. see full Toyota Tacoma review
