We get a lot of questions from car buyers, one of the most popular being, what is the towing capacity of a Toyota Tundra? The short answer: it depends on the trim level and equipment you opt for. The 2020 Toyota Tundra can tow between 8,800 and 10,200 pounds. The Tundra also has a payload capacity of 1,520 to 1,730 pounds. Also, there are a variety of features like a tow package and special side mirrors that help you tow efficiently and safely on the Baldwin Park roads.

Toyota Tundra Tow Package & Features

The Toyota Tundra offers the features needed to confidently tow a small boat or trailer through Baldwin Park and Glendora. 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.

Drivers can also keep an extra close eye on the 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.
