Toyota Tundra Towing Features

What are the Toyota Tundra towing features? You get everything needed to safely tow through Cerritos and Los Angeles. Outboard-mounted shocks and a powerful Triple-Tech™ frame with an integrated trailer hitch receiver gives this vehicle all of the muscle that it needs. 12 high-strength bolts driven into the frame secures the trailer hitch for additional support and added peace of mind.

Drivers can keep an eye on performance while towing thanks to a combination meter with a voltmeter coolant temperature, fuel, and engine oil pressure gauges. Other towing features include:

  • TOW/HAUL Mode and 4-/7-Pin Connector: With the 4-/7-pin connector, you can tow larger items more easily, because the system automatically holds lower gears for longer, increases throttle response, and more.
  • Integrated Trailer Brake Controller/Trailer-Sway Control: These systems let you control the amount of trailer braking and can apply the brakes when trailer sway is detected.
  • Available Tundra Tow Mirrors: Available as accessories, Toyota Tundra tow mirrors for the driver side and passenger side let you keep a closer eye on your cargo.
