Performance Specifications That Affect Towing

2022 Toyota TacomaBefore we can discuss everything you can pull behind your 2022 Toyota Tacoma, we have to talk about what’s going on under the hood. This pickup truck has two available engines: a standard 2.7L 4-cylinder engine with 159 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque or an optional 3.5L V6 engine with 278 horsepower and 265 lb-ft of torque.

Depending on which trim level you select, you can also choose between a manual and an automatic transmission, which can also affect how much your Tacoma can tow.

Another factor that will affect towing capacity is something under your truck: the drivetrain. The Tacoma comes standard with rear-wheel drive, which means power only goes to the rear wheels. You can also have your Tacoma equipped with 4-wheel drive, which means power will go to all four wheels individually.

Body Style Aspects That Affect Towing

The two cab styles are the Access Cab and the Double Cab. The Access Cab has two doors and seating for four, while the Double Cab has four doors and seating for up to five. If you choose the Double Cab, you’ll have two bed options, while you’ll only have the longer option on the Access Cab.

The two bed styles are simply a Standard Bed and a Long Bed. The Standard Bed has a maximum available cargo capacity of 27.8 cubic feet. The Long Bed has a maximum available cargo capacity of 33.8 cubic feet. If you choose the Access Cab, the Standard Bed will be the same measurements as the Long Bed paired to the Double Cab.

Towing Capacity Configurations

Now that you know which factors go into determining your truck’s towing capacity, it’s time to dive into the numbers. If you choose the 4-cylinder engine with an automatic transmission, whether you choose 2-wheel or 4-wheel drive, you’ll have a maximum available towing capacity of 3,500 pounds.

When it comes to the 3.5L V6 engine, there are a lot of options to choose from, so the chart below outlines them:

Manual 4×4 Standard Access Cab 6,500 lbs.
Manual 4×4 Standard Double Cab 6,400 lbs.

Automatic 4×4 Standard Double Cab 6,400 lbs.
Automatic 4×2 Long Bed Double Cab 6,600 lbs.

The only exception to this chart is the Limited trim with a Double Cab and Standard Bed. Equipped with an automatic transmission and a 2-wheel transmission, it has a maximum available towing capacity of 6,600 pounds.

To get the maximum available towing capacity of 6,800 pounds, you’ll want to choose the 3.7L V6 engine with an automatic transmission and 2-wheel drive. Pair this with an Access Cab and a Standard Bed, and you’ll be set.
