What is the Towing Capacity of a Toyota Tundra?

The Toyota Tundra has been fully refreshed for model year 2022, and it’s not just new styling that this truck gets. The 2022 Toyota Tundra towing capacity benefits, as it’s now increased to up to 12,000 pounds when properly equipped. That, in combination with a new max. payload rating of 1,940 pounds make the new Tundra ready for your Cerritos and West Hollywood job requirements!

Toyota Tundra Towing Capacity: Engine Specs

The 2022 Toyota Tundra towing capacity is largely a result of a gutsy i-FORCE 3.5L Twin-Turbo V6 engine that is now standard. This engine pumps out 348 hp and 405 lb-ft of torque

An available i-FORCE MAX powertrain is also available, which combines the 3.5L Twin-Turbo V6 engine with an electric motor, delivering 437 hp and 583 lb-ft of torque. This enhances the overall Toyota Tundra towing experience, increasing fuel efficiency to boot!
