: 05 Tundra performance (1/4 mile time)

Does anyone know the 0-60 or the 1/4 mile times for the 05 Tundra access cab V8?...i test drove one and was very impressed,so i hooked my G-tech meter up to it and did some runs.I could only muster a 6.8 0-60 and a 15.4 at 94 mph in the 1/4 due to traction problems(had to pedal 1st gear due to spinning wildly).I'm currently driving a 01 Taco S/C and i must say this Tundra just might hang with it no problem!... :tu:

I don't think anyone or org has tested an 05 yet. The more I think about it the more I want one. 5spd, 282hp, yeah. You know, Motor Trend have always said that if a vehicles is new or significantly revised it would be eligible for Car/Truck or SUV of the year. I wondered why the tundra wan't included for 05 when it now has a improved motor and a 5sp auto tranny. I think that's a significant revision. But the 05 tacoma is truck of the year for Motor Trend.
