Toyota Tundra Towing

Toyota Tundra Towing Capacity

The 2020 Toyota Tundra has a maximum towing capacity of 10,200 pounds when properly equipped. It gets this kind of capability thanks to its sturdy powertrain:

  • 5.7L V8 engine
  • 381 horsepower
  • 401 lb-ft of torque

To reach the maximum towing capacity, you’ll want to equip your pickup with Rear-Wheel Drive (4×2). However, a 4WDemand part-time 4WD (4×4) system is also available for drivers who need a bit more traction control when docking their boat in the Gulf.

We also recommend the 5.7L V8 Tow Package that includes a towing receiver hitch, 4.30 axle ratio, a TOW/HAUL mode switch for your transmission, a trailer brake controller, and a supplemental transmission cooler, among other equipment.

2020 Toyota Tundra MPG

Toyota Tundra Efficiency

If your business does a lot of long hauls or your family likes to road trip, then you’re probably looking for a truck with plenty of fuel efficiency. That’s exactly what you’ll get with the 2020 Toyota Tundra that achieves the following maximum Toyota-estimated fuel economy ratings:

  • 4×2: 13 city/18 highway MPG*
  • 4×4: 13 city/17 highway MPG*

Plus, it sports a 38-gallon tank. This holds a lot of fuel, so you can spend less time at the pump.

One reason why the Toyota Tundra gets such impressive fuel economy numbers for its class is because it pairs its powerful engine with a 6-speed Electronically Controlled automatic Transmission with intelligence (ECT-i).

The ECT-i includes sequential shift mode so you can take control of your shift schedule when the mood strikes. It also has uphill/downhill shift logic. This is especially useful when towing because it will reduce how often your truck expends excess energy “hunting” for the right gear on an incline.

Toyota Tundra Durability and Utility

The Toyota Tundra is a full-size truck that’s built to play as hard as it works. That means, when you’re heading to the beach, out to a campsite, or onto the bike track, it’s well equipped with all the capability you need.

You can see that just from looking at its payload capacity:

  • 2020 Toyota Tundra payload capacity: 1,730 pounds (when properly equipped)

This is more than enough weight for taking an ATV out to the woods, while the available deck rail system incorporates four adjustable tie-down cleats to help keep your cargo secure.

It stays strong on the go, too, with its available Active Traction Control (A-TRAC) system. This A-TRAC feature is part of the 4WD system. It works to maximize traction across the front and rear axles simultaneously to improve grip on low-traction surfaces.

The A-TRAC system works with the 4WD system’s 2-speed transfer case that lets you switch between Low and High modes to optimize handling based on the terrain.
