2019 Toyota Tacoma Towing Capacity

By Garber Fox Lake Toyota | November 28th, 2018

If you need a truck that can handle the roads of Libertyville and Waukegan with ease, then there’s nothing quite like the Toyota Tacoma. This impressive pickup has the V6 power and rugged suspension to tackle on- and off-road conditions like a pro, but the Toyota Tacoma towing just might be the highlight of the latest model. In fact, you can expect up to 6,800 pounds of towing prowess when properly equipped! Let’s take a look under the hood of the Toyota Tacoma:

Hauling Power

The Toyota Tacoma offers two choices of engines. The 159-hp 2.7L 4-cylinder comes standard with 180 lb-ft of torque, but the available 3.5L V6 delivers up to 278 hp and 265 lb-ft of torque. This V6 option features direct injection technology, which boosts both power and efficiency. Standard features like Class-IV towing hitch receiver, power steering cooler, and both 4- and 7-pin connectors with converters make heavy-duty hauling a cinch. Choose the V6 configuration and you’ll have 6,400 pounds of towing capacity to explore – along with built-in Trailer-Sway Control (TSC) for better precision while operating and carrying large loads. What if you need a little extra capacity? Add in the optional Tow Package to extend your towing capacity to 6,800 pounds and 1,440 pounds of payload!

Towing Control

A good truck can haul serious cargo, but a great truck will make the process stress-free. The Toyota Tacoma specs incorporate different technology features to make towing easier than ever:

  • The hot-stamped high-strength steel frame is stronger and lighter than typical steel, which heightens both durability and performance over any terrain.

  • Available Trailer-Sway Control adjusts braking pressure and torque to each individual wheel, so your cargo stays firmly planted on the road.

  • Power-assisted ventilated front disc brakes and rear drum brakes utilize technology like tandem boosters and Toyota’s Star Safety System optimizes braking power under any circumstance.
