Toyota Tundra Tow Package & Features 

The Toyota Tundra is a head-turning pickup truck that offers incredible capabilities that allows you to tow confidently through the Lexington and New Albany areas. The Tundra has outboard-mounted shocks and a powerful TripleTech™ frame with an integrated trailer hitch receiver that gives the Tundra the muscle it needs. For added support and peace of mind, you have twelve high-strength bolts driven into the frame to secure the trailer hitch.

Other noteworthy tow features include: 

  • TOW/HAUL Mode and 4-/7-Pin Connector: Lets you tow larger items with ease because this system automatically holds lower gears for longer, which increases the throttle response. 
  • Integrated Trailer Brake Controller/Trailer-Sway Control: Lets you control the amount of trailer braking and 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. 

Toyota Tundra Engines 

The incredible Toyota Tundra towing capacity is in part thanks to its engine. What’s under the hood? The new Tundra is equipped with an i-FORCE 5.7L V8 engine that’s paired with a six-speed automatic engine that generates 381 hp and 401 lb-ft of torque. This powerful engine can tow 10,200 pounds.
