Toyota Tundra Tow Package & Features
The Toyota Tundra offers the features you need to tow confidently through Petoskey and Indian River. Outboard-mounted shocks and a powerful TripleTech™ frame with an integrated trailer hitch receiver give the Tundra the muscle it needs. Twelve high-strength bolts driven into the frame secure the trailer hitch for added support and peace of mind.
You can also keep a close eye on performance as you tow, thanks to a combination meter with a voltmeter coolant temperature, fuel, and engine oil pressure gauges. Other features include the following:
- TOW/HAUL Mode and 4-/7-Pin Connector: With the 4-/7-pin connector, you can tow larger items more easily, because the system automatically holds lower gears for longer, increases throttle response, and more.
- Integrated Trailer Brake Controller/Trailer-Sway Control: These systems let you control the amount of trailer braking and can apply the brakes when trailer sway is detected.
- Available Tundra Tow Mirrors: Available as accessories, Toyota Tundra tow mirrors for the driver side and passenger side let you keep a closer eye on your cargo.
Toyota Tundra Engines
What about the engines that make it all possible? The Toyota Tundra is available to Onaway shoppers with a powerful engine under the hood. Here’s a closer look at the engine specs:
- i-FORCE 5.7L V8 Engine: This engine is also paired with a 6-speed automatic, and generates 381 hp and 401 lb-ft of torque. It comes with a Tow Package, which includes an additional engine and transmission oil coolers. This is the engine you need to tow 10,200 pounds—or about three Toyota Priuses.
