Test Driver Ratings & Comments

Acceleration commentsNothing major to report here. Launch technique makes little difference in E.T. or trap speed. Not really enough power to spin tires anyway. Still, this engine feels adequate.
Braking ratingVery good
Braking commentsAs in other Tundras, pedal feel is excellent and stops are consistent.
Handling ratingAverage
Handling commentsUp against stability control limits, there's little a driver can do here on the skid pad. In the slalom, the key to getting through quickly is to keep inputs smooth and slow. Otherwise, stability control kills the run with heavy brake application.
