Say WOT? TRD Supercharged Tundra Clocked 0 to 60 in 4.4 Seconds!

The good folks at Motor Trend recently tested a regular cab Toyota Tundra outfitted with Toyota Racing Development's new 5.7-liter V-8 supercharger plus a few other TRD-supplied tweaks. The result? A blistering fast 0 to 60 mph time of only 4.4 seconds! That makes this truck the fastest pickup on the planet with factory approved, and warrantied, kit. It's faster than the 2004-06 Dodge Ram SRT-10 (0 to 60 mph in 5.0 seconds), 1991-92 GMC Syclone (0 to 60 mph in 4.6 seconds) and 2007-08 Holden HSV Maloo Ute (0 to 62 mph in 4.9 seconds).

The Tundra's TRD compressor is an Eaton Twin Vortices System roots-type supercharger, which uses the newest four-lobe, high-helix rotors, like the ZR-1 Corvette. A water-to-air intercooler system with a low-temp radiator is part of the setup. Included are high-flow fuel injectors, iridium spark plugs, a higher-flow fuel pump and a TRD-designed performance air-intake system. Boost pressure is 8.5 psi at maximum demand.

The system provides a significant increase in horsepower and torque. Stock output — 381 horsepower and 401 pounds-feet of torque — improves to 504 hp at 5,500 rpm and 550 pounds-feet of torque.

We drove the same Tundra several months ago on the drag strip at Toyota Speedway in Irwindale, Calif. We didn't measure our 0 to 60 mph score but we did record our time and speed in the 1/8-mile sprint at 9.07 seconds at 81.16 mph.

Could we hit 60 mph in 4.4 seconds? We don't know but we'd sure love to try.
