    2017 5.7 sluggish



    I have 2011 5.7 XP. Went w/ son to test drive 2017 SR5.

    1- the jump in the acceleration from dead stop is gone.
    2- also, the great acceleration is gone. The Tundra now feels like his 2006 Silverado...sluggish.

    A- What have they done?
    B- Can a re-mapper get it back?

    You're saying the 2017 feels slower than the 2011?

    I can agree with this. Toyota gave me a 2017 5.7 double cab 2wd loaner. My 2010 5.7 crewmax 4wd with lift and mud tires is much peppier. I figured they had nerfed it because it was a loaner. You really have to give it a lot more gas than the older 5.7.
