September 19th, 2016 by

10,000 Pounds and Counting

Toyota is proud to offer 22 different Tundra configurations that can tow a minimum of 10,00 pounds. These are available in all six trim levels. You can be sure that these big guys can handle your big toys or your important work loads. For even more capability, the 5.7-liter V-8 regular cab edition with the long bed can tow 10,500 pounds. Value your trade.

Tow-Haul Mode

Instead of wasting power, the Tundra makes the most out of it with the tow-haul mode. Standard with the 5.7-liter V-8, this system holds the lower gears longer, letting you make more out of the truck’s generous torque thrust. The transmission won’t spend time hunting for the right gear.

Tougher Tow Hitch

Standard on the i-Force V-8 editions, the Tundra wears an integrated receiver. This factory-installed feature is attached far down the frame rails. A dozen high-strength bolts and hydro-formed cross member keep it in place.

Better Build

High strength steel keeps its shape better in this durable Tundra truck. To maintain flexibility when confronted with a tough tow, the truck has a special suspension system. The front coil-spring high-mounted double-wishbone configuration is aided by low-pressure nitrogen gas-filled shock absorbers. The rear live axle features staggered outboard-mounted low-pressure nitrogen-filled shock absorbers and a trapezoidal multi-leaf configuration. Find out about financing .
