How Much Can the 2017 Toyota Tundra Tow?
Make no bones about it, when it comes to all-out muscle in the Toyota family, there’s only one name constantly on the lips of drivers: the 2017 Toyota Tundra. Our full-size pickup makes waves with its distinctive styling and effortless interior comfort, sure, but when there’s a job to be done, it’s the power that gets Janesville-area drivers excited. So, what is the towing capacity of the latest edition of the Tundra?
2017 Toyota Tundra Towing Capacity
For the new model year, the 2017 Toyota Tundra offers two outstanding powertrain options for prospective buyers. Standard is a 4.6L i-Force V8 that reels off 310 horsepower and 327 lb-ft of torque, resulting in a towing capacity of up to 6,800 pounds. Meanwhile, those looking to add an extra dose of muscle may do so by way of the 5.7L i-Force V8, which tows up to 10,500 pounds, putting its throaty 381 horsepower and 401 lb-ft of torque to excellent use. Then, with features such as a heavy-duty TripleTech frame with integrated towing hitch receiver, buyers can be confident that the Tundra is up to the job at hand.
2017 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro
Adding to its penchant for people-pleasing performance, 2017 sees the release of the Tundra TRD Pro, a high-performance, off-road-ready version of our popular workhorse. With specially tuned Bilstein shocks, off-road wheels and tires, a new skid plate and TRD-tuned exhaust, it’s the perfect companion for a day at the dunes.
