Things can be stressful if you’re in need of a new vehicle and have a heavy boat, camper or trailer that you know you’re going to have to tow. Luckily for you, the Toyota Tundra is back, and it’s stronger than ever. The 2017 Tundra is known for more than just its pretty face, and it has really stepped up its power for the 2017 model year.
2017 Toyota Tundra towing capacity
The 2017 Toyota Tundra offers features like staggered, outboard-mounted shocks and a ridiculously powerful engine that are designed to allow the Tundra to tow and haul anything and everything you need it to. When the Tundra’s standard i-FORCE 5.7-liter V8 engine and Toyota’s Tow Package are mixed, the 2017 Tundra is strong enough to pull over 10,500 pounds. Now that’s what we call power.
But the power doesn’t stop there. In fact, all sixteen configurations of the six trim levels can all tow at least 10,000 pounds. All trim levels with the 5.7-liter V8 include the TOW/HAUL Mode, which holds lower gears for longer, increases throttle response, increases pulling power and increases engine braking.
