Toyota Tundra Towing a Boat

Over the years, the Toyota Tundra and Toyota Tacoma have become synonymous with enduring reliability and capable pickup performance. While there are a number of qualities that separate these two models, they’re united when it comes to durability and high-tech features. Where these pickup trucks shine brightest, though, is on the towing front. Whether you need to tow your boat to Fort Lauderdale or haul a trailer to Hollywood, Miami drivers can always count on Toyota pickups to deliver when it comes to towing!

Towing Capacity

  • Toyota Tacoma – Toyota’s popular small pickup delivers bigger numbers than you might expect from a vehicle in this segment. In fact, when properly equipped with four-wheel drive, the 3.5L V6 engine, and the Tow Package, the Tacoma is able to trailer up to 6,800 pounds.
  • Toyota Tundra – Step up to full-size Toyota pickup for a bump in capabilities across the line. At the top of the work performance lineup is a 5.7L V8 engine with a Tow Package and four-wheel drive. Opt for this model and you’ll be able to tow up to a whopping 10,500 pounds!

Trailer-Sway Control

Even for experienced drivers, maneuvering the streets of Miami with a big load in back can sometimes prove to be challenging. The Toyota Tacoma and the Toyota Tundra both make towing easier and safer thanks to the Trailer-Sway Control (TSC) feature, which comes standard with the Tow Package. TSC is able to read the amount of weight distributed on the trailer in back. It then modifies handling in order to stabilize the trailer and prevent excessive sway. This is done by applying a specific amount of brake pressure and torque to individual wheels.
