Toyota Tundra Tow Package & Features 

The Toyota Tundra comes equipped with the features needed to tow a small boat and equipment with ease along the Madison roads. Outboard-mounted shocks and a powerful TripleTech™ frame with an integrated trailer hitch receiver gives the Tundra the muscle it needs. Twelve high-strength bolts driven into the frame secure the trailer hitch and also give you extra support and peace of mind. 

Keep an extra eye on the vehicle’s performance as you tow, thanks to the combination meter with voltmeter coolant temperature, fuel, and engine oil pressure gauges. Other features include: 

  • TOW/HAUL Mode and 4-/7-Pin Connector: Tow larger items with ease thanks to the system that automatically holds lower gears for longer, increases throttle response, and more. 
  • Integrated Trailer Brake Controller/Trailer-Sway Control: Control the amount of trailer braking and apply the brakes when trailer sway is detected. 
  • Available Tundra Tow Mirrors: The available Toyota Tundra tow mirrors for the driver side and passenger side lets you keep a closer eye on your cargo. 

Toyota Tundra Engines 

What makes the Tundra towing possible? Toyota towing capabilities are part in thanks to the incredible engine performance. Clinton-area shoppers will enjoy the head-turning engine found under the hood, which is an i-FORCE 5.7L V8 engine that is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission that produces 381 hp and 401 lb-ft of torque. The Toyota Tundra Tow Package includes additional engine and transmission coolers that give you what’s needed to tow 10,200 – or about three Toyota Priuses.
