    Transmission gears also play a big part in it.

    3.8 Jeeps are dogs. Especially the automatics - my brother has one and I have a Tacoma. My truck feels like a sports car in comparison

    4.10 gears, sliders, and lots of buttons.
    As mentioned, many factors play a role. The 1GR has much more torque, the tranny is much more efficient at transmitting the power with minimal loss.
