Toyota Tundra Towing Capacity

When looking at a great pickup truck like the Toyota Tundra, you’re probably wondering about its towing capacity. Whether you’re towing a trailer near Nashville or pulling work material around Gallatin or Madison, it’s important that your pickup can bring the power.

To give you the full scoop on just how much the Tundra can tow, contact our team at Ron Hibbard Toyota has all the information you’ll need, right here in one place!

Tundra Power & Performance

Before we get into towing specifics, let’s talk about the power behind them. The Toyota Tundra offers two strong engine options:

  • An i-FORCE 5.7L V8 engine that delivers 381 horsepower and 401 lb-ft of torque
  • An i-FORCE 4.6L V8 that puts out 310 horsepower and 327 lb-ft of torque

With the available 38-gallon fuel tank, you won’t have to make a pit stop to refuel on those longer drives. If you plan on taking the truck on rougher terrains, you’ll have no issues here. The Tundra excels both on and off the road with a smooth ride and powerful front brakes.

Toyota Tundra Towing Capacity & Maximum Payload

Now, let’s get straight to the towing capacity and maximum payload of the Toyota Tundra. The power of the 5.7L V8 engine will have you able to pull up to 10,100 pounds—perfect for bringing your new boat along your next family vacation!

With outboard-mounted shocks and a heavy-duty TripleTech™ frame with integrated towing hitch receiver, you’ll find that the Tundra was made to carry a few extra pounds around. Your items will be extra secured, too, thanks to the 12 high-strength bolts built into the trailer hitch frame.

Plus, the TOW/HAUL Mode allows the Tundra to hold lower gears a little longer, without shifting to find the right gear while towing. Additionally, you’ll get throttle response, pulling power, and engine braking with this innovative system.

With the 5.7L V8, you’ll get a maximum payload of 1,660 pounds. So feel free to load up the extra gear for your next big work project, as the Tundra will act as your very own personal assistant—without the coffee breaks.

Towing Technology

When pulling a few extra things around, the latest technology features are certainly a big help. The available Integrated Trailer Brake Controller (ITBC) and standard Trailer-Sway Control (TSC) offer you the assistance you’ll need to make your towing trips smooth and efficient.

ITBC and TSC can sense if the trailer begins to sway, and add pressure to the brakes in order to maintain stability. They also allow you to shift the amount of trailer braking in accordance to its weight, so you can assure the safest transportation.
