Towing with the 2019 TundraMay 15th, 2019
The 2019 Toyota Tundra offers buyers 24 possible configurations and a wide variety of engine, cabin, interior and bed features. The Tundra has a towing capacity of 6,500 lbs. up to an impressive 10,200 lbs. depending on which configuration and tow package you choose.
The Toyota Tundra comes with two engine options:
- i-FORCE 4.6L V8 Engine that delivers 310 hp and 327 lb-ft of torque.
- i-FORCE 5.7L V8 Engine that delivers 381 hp and 401 lb-ft of torque. This engine comes with a Tow Package, which includes an additional engine and transmission oil coolers. This will get you to a maximum towing capacity of 10,200 pounds.
Choosing which engine you want will depend on what you want your Tundra to do. If you want to tow large loads i.e. boats, fifth wheels, campers, etc. the 5.7 L engine is the obvious choice.
Drivers who upgrade to the 5.7-liter V8 engine can also enjoy the Tundra’s TOW/HAUL mode, which holds lower gears longer and increases throttle response, pulling power and engine braking to keep you in control of your cargo.
If you do choose an extended bed or the CrewMax cabin, you will reduce your towing capacity by around 100 pounds.
Tundra Trims & Towing Features
The 2019 Tundra offers five distinct trim levels: SR, SR5, Limited, Platinum and the 1794 Edition and TRD Pro.
The Tundra Tow Package is available on all models and includes major upgrades that allow you to tow just about anything you need.
In addition to TOW/HAUL Mode, the tow package adds Trailer Sway Control, an integrated trailer-brake controller, engine/transmission oil coolers and a heavy-duty battery/alternator.
