Toyota Truck Towing


The new Toyota trucks have been built to handle large loads, with the midsize Toyota Tacoma towing up to 6,800 lbs and the full-size Toyota Tundra handling a max towing capacity of 10,200 lbs. Take a closer look at the towing numbers and towing features on both of these pickups, and then take them both out for a test drive at Brent Brown Toyota in Orem, UT.

Towing Capacity

The Tacoma and Tundra are both offered with capable towing numbers across the board.

Model Minimum Available Towing Capacity Max Towing Capacity
2017 Toyota Tacoma 3,500 lbs (four-cylinder engine, 4×2) 6,800 lbs (V6 engine, 4×4, Tow Package)
2018 Toyota Tundra200d 6,800 lbs (4.6L V8, 4×2)200d 10,200 lbs (5.7L V8, 4×4, Tow Package)

Towing Features

Both of these pickups are also available with a wide range of towing features that make it easier, safer, and more convenient to haul big loads of stuff behind you:

  • Trailer Sway Control (TSC) – This feature is able to read whether and how a trailer is swaying behind the truck. It then delivers specific amounts of power and torque, and applies brake pressure to individual wheels in order to help reduce sway and keep control.
  • TOW/HAUL Mode – Available on the Tundra, this feature recalibrates the transmission to hold low gears longer when hauling big loads so that the transmission doesn’t search around for gears.
  • Standard Backup Camera – The Tacoma and Tundra both come standard with a backup camera, which makes it easier for you to keep track of what you’re trailering and easier to maneuver a big load by giving you a clear view of what’s behind you.
