Toyota Tacoma Towing Capacity

Nothing beats an exciting getaway with family and friends, which often means towing a small boat or dirt bikes. The new Tacoma is known for offering a tow package that allows drivers to safely and confidently tow their items on the Onaway streets with ease. The base Tacoma and SR5 trims can tow 3,500 pounds, but when properly equipped with a towing package, they can tow up to 6,400 pounds. The 3.5-liter V6 and available tow package help this popular pickup truck tow up to 6,800 pounds or carry a payload of up to 1,440 pounds.
