The Toyota Tacoma has a maximum towing capacity of 6,800 pounds. It also has a few useful features that will help you in your towing endeavors.
An integrated backup camera comes standard. It will make hooking up your haul even easier. Plus, the available Trailer-Sway Control can detect load shifts. To compensate, it manages the torque and applies to brake pressure to help you keep command of your haul.
For all the equipment that doesn’t need a trailer, you’ll have a maximum payload of 1,440 pounds. On top of that, to help you take advantage of that payload, there are 41.5 inches of bed width. There are also two different bed lengths to choose from, a 73.7-inch long bed and a 60.5-inch short bed.
The Source of All That Power
At the heart of the Toyota Tacoma, lies the available 3.5L V6 Atkinson-cycle engine. It turns out an impressive 278 horsepower and 265 lb-ft of torque.
It’s paired with a 6-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission. It gives you more control over this pickup’s immense power. Plus, it provides seamless shifts for a smooth and capable ride.
When it’s time to take your haul off-road, the Toyota Tacoma has you covered. The available electronically-locking rear differential will distribute power evenly to both rear wheels, to give you more traction in tricky terrain. Best of all, the available Multi-terrain Select gives you five modes to choose from that will fine-tune your off-roading capability.
Stay Safe and Connected While You Tow
It’s important to stay connected while you’re towing a big haul. That’s why the Toyota Tacoma features the available Entune™ Audio system. From the available 7-inch touchscreen display, you’ll be able to access your phone and your favorite apps. Plus, the available Integrated Navigation will get you where you need to go with ease.
You’ll be able to stay connected to your buddies at the job site, too! With the available Bluetooth® wireless technology, you can make hands-free phone calls. On top of that, when your favorite tune starts playing on the available SiriusXM® Satellite Radio, you can turn up the volume on the available JBL® Premium Audio System.
