Test Driver Ratings & Comments

Acceleration commentsAmple torque and nondefeat traction control make launching the Tundra harder than it should be. Even with TC switched off, the Tundra limits wheelspin by cutting power. The resulting bog costs time. Best launch is a product of carefully metering the throttle to avoid wheelspin. Once underway, however, the Tundra gets up to speed quickly.
Braking commentsBraking distances are wildly inconsistent. This seems like the product of the chassis loading up differently every time and activating the ABS differently. The Tundra stops straight, but there's a fair amount of drama with lots of ABS noise and body dive. Even so, the pedal is consistent and confident.
Handling commentsThis is a good reminder of how of out of sorts trucks are in handling tests. Though the Tundra probably isn't significantly worse than its full-size counterparts here, it's a real handful to weave through the cones and around the skid pad. Slalom: Slow and easy is the name of the game here. Avoid triggering stability control at all costs because it will effectively end the run. Doing so means going laughably slow. Skid pad: Toyota's heavy-handed stability control removes any hope a driver might have of exercising control during steady-state cornering in the Tundra. Your best bet? Stay below the ESC threshold, which is easy.
