What is the towing capacity of a Toyota Tundra? It depends on the trim and equipment. The 2020 Toyota Tundra towing capacity is 8,800 to 10,200 pounds. It also has a payload capacity of 1,520 to 1,730 pounds. Additionally, it’s available with a variety of features like a tow package and special side mirrors to help you tow safely and efficiently. Read on to learn more about the new Tundra’s capabilities! 

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:
