    Passing some fool more intent on playing with his phone (and who knows what else) than driving, and taking it up to 55 in 2nd gear was an eye opener! The truck has a lot of power in the upper RPMs.

    None to speak of, just enjoying it for the moment.
    I used to drive an SHO and it was fast, had plenty of power to do whatever I wanted. Now I drive a 2022 V6 Tacoma and it is fine, it is not designed to be like my SHO but the power is fine, not bad not great but just fine I think. Both Honda and Toyota do have power curves that rely on operating in the higher end of the RPM range and that is not user friendly for average drivers, it just isn't. I like my power band lower to more easily access it but for some reason Honda and Toyota design their engines for high revs to get into their power band. It isn't ideal but it is easy so do and most people don't care either way. Seems fine to me.
