    I have a 2015 5.7 liter. It may be me, but does anyone have an issue with the acceleration pausing around 10 mph with no load in the bed or no trailer? This is my second Tundra and the first never did that. I took it to the dealer for a diagnostic and it checked out fine. Is this normal?

    yep bank account is running low from it..
    The tech goes by what you tell the service writer and the tech trys to find the problem or reproduce it to correct it the problem in question.

    your truck is brand new i say give it some time and let it LEARN. Yes let it learn for about a month in driving habits. If it still does it then take it back and see if they can track it down.

    Im willing to bet at 10 mph is a HUNT spot in the transmission they all have it. Transmission computer has to stay do i want 1st or 2nd gear. Whats it doing i bet its looking at everything( speed and fuel input) before it makes the jump why the pause is in there. (theory but i bet its right)

    I have 2010 and do not have anything resembling this pause you are describing. Was yours a pre-2014? I know that they did something to 14+ to 'smooth out' the acceleration. I wonder if that is the difference you feel. Take nannies off and see if you still feel the pause.
