How Much Does The Tacoma Weigh?

Anyone know how much the Tacomas weigh, dry weight? Just wondering what the HP/Weight ratio is compared to other trucks I have had over the years.

Yep.

My ACCESS CAB Prerunner is 3626lb according to my registration. The crazy thing is that my REG CAB 4x2 2002 Dakota was in the 4900lb range. Must be that tinfoil they use for sheet metal.

My landfill tare weight last week was 4120 (me and the pooch already subtracted out). The curb weights are the best for comparisons, but I think my Taco is a little on the chunky side. Specs are in my sig line.

4200lb here

My 06 TRD offroad, access cab came in at 4200lb. This was with 3/4 tank of gas, 6 speed, bed mat, soft tonneau cover, and BFG A/T's 265/75r16 instead of the stockers.

FYI, regular unleaded gasoline has a weight of about 6.216 pounds per gallon. Premium gasoline weighs about 6.350 pounds per gallon.

A full tank of premium gas weighs 133 lbs.

Yup. That's why our trucks are faster than all other mid size trucks, and the Tacoma is also faster than most V8 full size trucks.

The Sport or Off Road package might affect the weight a little bit because of the different wheel and tire sizes. But it shouldn't be a big difference.

The heaviest Tacoma would be a 4x4 DC LB at 4110 lbs.

A 4x4 DC SB should be 4055 lbs.

I forgot about the X-runners. They have the addition of the X brace, and ground effects. The X-runner curb weight is 3690 lbs
