Toyota Tundra Towing Capabilities – Slidell, LA Toyota Dealer

February 20th, 2024 by

Part of the process of shopping for a full-size pickup truck is making sure the truck is capable of helping you with all tasks— including towing items like boats, machines, trailers, or anything else you need.

Fortunately, the Toyota Tundra is highly capable of revving out performance and power. Towing with a Tundra will alter the way you tow, near and far, in Slidell.

Meet The Toyota Tundra

The Toyota Tundra is not like other full-size pickup trucks. The Tundra was designed tough to handle well and ride smoothly even on the wildest adventures.

Regardless of cab style, the Tundra fits five people comfortably in its cloth upholstery. Though the standard interior is an upgrade enough from a traditional truck, genuine leather, heated front seats, and more interior features are available for upgrade for drivers or passengers spending more time in the cabin.

While comfort is essential, more impressive about the Tundra is its technology features. The Tundra greets riders with a hard-to-miss 14-inch audio multimedia touchscreen. This large screen lets drivers choose different views, check immediate surroundings, display a trailer backup guide, and more!
As if the large display screen wasn’t enough, wireless charging and a 12.3-inch full-color gauge cluster also are part of the Tundra. These gadgets are only part of what makes it easy to feel confident and in control while in the Tundra.

If you’re driving a Tundra, it’s no doubt you’re towing or exploring. When everything is hitched and ready to go, the Tundra’s towing technology can also work magic to display impressive towing capability.

Tow With High-Tech Towing Technology

Towing rate is at your fingers with two engine options, and the Tundra delivers a great towing rate with either engine. For example, the standard i-FORCE 3.5L-T V6 engine generates roughly 348 horsepower and 405 lb-ft of torque. That’s just for the Tundra base trim!

When a Tundra is properly equipped, a maximum towing capacity of 12,000 pounds can be reached. This towing capacity is met with desirable high-tech towing technology.

Once you plug the trailer or other item into the Tundra’s 7-pin connector, the length and adjusted throttle don’t need any input from the driver. The Tundra is equipped with Trailer-Sway Control and available Integrated Trailer Brake Control to help increase the confidence of handling through bumps or turns on the road.

Like any full-size truck, exact towing capacity will vary on the trim level and equipment selected:

  • Toyota Tundra SR: 8,300 lbs
  • Toyota Tundra SR5: 12,000 lbs
  • Toyota Tundra Limited: 11,400 lbs
  • Toyota Tundra Platinum: 11,300 lbs
