Toyota Tundra Towing Power

Towing Capacity

When properly equipped, the Toyota Tundra has a maximum towing capacity of 10,200 pounds. With this towing capacity, you’ll be traveling around town—and beyond—fully capable of bringing along all your adventure equipment: jet skis, camping trailers, boats, and more.

For those times where you’re looking to get away but don’t need a trailer, your Toyota Tundra has a maximum payload capacity of 1,730 pounds.

Optional Towing Features

When it comes to towing your big toys, having a little extra help and security never hurt. That’s why you can equip your Toyota Tundra with the optional Tow Package. This package includes features like:

  • TOW/HAUL mode switch
  • Integrated Trailer Brake Controller
  • Heavy-duty battery
  • Trailer-Sway Control
  • And more

The TOW/HAUL mode switch changes your engine output in terms of throttle response, pulling power, and braking. Plus, the TOW/HAUL mode helps your Tundra hold lower transmission gears for longer periods of time to further help with towing.

Toyota Tundra Towing Off-Road

Off-Road Adventure Ready

When it comes to exploring the natural world and all its wonders, chances are you’re going to need to go off the paved roads. Fortunately, the Toyota Tundra is perfect for taking your travels off road. You’ll find this truck has a standard minimum ground clearance of 10.4 inches, so tree branches and rocks are no challenge to you.

Drivers with serious off-road travels in mind should check out the optional TRD Off-Road Package. With this package, you’ll receive both engine and fuel tank skid plates for extra protection while crawling over objects. You’ll also receive 18-inch all-terrain tires, shock absorbers for a smoother ride, and front tow hooks.

With these extra features, you’ll find towing your trailer off the beaten path is much more than a possibility.
