Toyota Tacoma Towing Tacoma by Configuration

The Tacoma towing capacity can reach up to 6,800 pounds with the proper trailer hitch, however, it still offers strong towing power without an available towing hitch receiver. Across the Tacoma lineup, each model can tow at least 3,500 pounds to get you around Madison with a small boat, camper, or sporting equipment. When the day calls for your powerful towing options, be sure to pay attention to the Toyota Tacoma towing capacity by configuration:

Tacoma SR Towing Capacity

  • 4×2 Access Cab w/ 4-Cylinder Engine 6-Speed Automatic Transmission & 6-feet Bed – 3,500 pounds
  • 4×2 Access Cab w/ V6 Engine 6-Speed Automatic Transmission & 6-feet Bed – 6,800 pounds

As you can see with this entry-level option, the Tacoma needs to be equipped with the V6 engine to reach the top capacity. Keep in mind that the cab style and bed size also changes the towing capacity.
