Toyota Tundra Towing Capacity
When you’re in the market for a new pickup truck near the Doral, Kendall, Hialeah, and Miami areas, one of the main factors you may be interested in is towing capacity. Trucks are unique in their ability to tow massive amounts of cargo.

Finding the best one for your towing job can be tricky since you have quite a few options to choose from. To help, Doral Toyota designed this breakdown on the Toyota Tundra towing capacity to help you out.
This rugged truck has all the features you could reasonably expect in a modern pickup truck, including an impressive maximum towing capacity of 10,200 pounds. Therefore, this pickup is ideal for tackling jobs around your worksite or for taking your trailer out to a campsite on the weekends. Learn more about the Toyota Tundra and its towing capacity in this review and discover if this truck meets your high standards. If you have any further questions, reach out to our dealership today.
Toyota Tundra Tow Rating
This monster of a pickup can haul a whole lot of cargo, making it the ideal choice for a work truck or for taking your large boat out to the lake for the weekend. The maximum tow rating for the Tundra when properly equipped is 10,200 pounds. A lot of variables go into providing such a high towing capacity, but the main component is the advanced 5.7-liter i-FORCE V8 engine. This engine generates 381 horsepower and 401 lb-ft of torque for a powerful performance on the highway whether you’re towing a trailer behind you or not.
This commanding motor also achieves an EPA-estimated 18 MPG on the highway.1 Combined with an available 38-gallon fuel tank, you’ll be able to travel over 680 highway miles on one tank of gas alone. So, when you’re taking your two-horse trailer out on a journey, you can drive with confidence in knowing you have the fuel to handle a longer haul without having to stop at the pump often.
Toyota Tundra Towing Technology
While brute strength is useful, especially in a truck, it doesn’t mean much if you don’t have the proper tools to control it. Fortunately, the Tundra includes numerous technological features to make towing a breeze. To start, there’s a Tow/Haul Mode complete with a 4-/7-pin connector. With this system, your pickup will automatically adjust throttle and shifting to compensate for towing, so you don’t have to worry about driving differently when your trailer is attached. It will also hold gears for longer to take some of the guesswork out of hauling larger trailers, helping you have a more confident drive.
There’s even available Integrated Trailer Brake Controller and standard Trailer-Sway Control. These features allow you to directly control the brakes on the wheels of your trailer. Not only can you put it to a stop yourself, but your Trailer-Sway Control system ensures your trailer stays behind you where it belongs. When it senses sway, this system automatically applies brake pressure at the individual wheels to keep your trailer firmly planted on the road. With the ability to haul a 25-foot-long trailer, you’ll be thankful to have this feature to keep you in command.
Toyota Tundra Payload Capacity
In addition to superior towing capabilities, the Toyota Tundra features a maximum bed length of 97.6 inches and width of 66.4 inches. With such an expansive bed, clearly this pickup is equipped to fit larger building materials, like plywood, to give you a helping hand on your worksite. Combined with a maximum payload capacity of 1,730 pounds when properly equipped, this truck can take on even the most demanding projects with grace and ease.
To make loading up your bed simpler, the Tundra features a standard easy lower and lift tailgate. After getting your heavy equipment conveniently into your bed, an available deck rail system helps you to secure it for the drive ahead. With four adjustable tie-down cleats each rated at 220 pounds, you can rest assured your precious cargo isn’t going anywhere–no matter how bumpy the road gets.
Toyota Tundra Interior Storage
With seating for up to six passengers, the Tundra has enough room to bring your friends and family along on your next adventure or to give your buddies a ride from worksite to worksite. If you’re traveling alone, though, fold-up rear seats are available to provide you with a large interior cargo space that’s easy to load your tools and equipment into. A rear under-seat storage compartment is also available to provide even more room as well as stash smaller items or important devices securely out of sight.
Opt for available front bucket seats to create a more roomy and comfortable drive. These seats also come with a large center console with a covered storage compartment for more protected storage options. This console also features a 12-volt auxiliary power outlet so you can keep your smartphone charged throughout the ride to continue to enjoy Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration through the available 8-inch Entune™ Premium Audio with Dynamic Navigation system.
