Toyota Tacoma Towing Capacity

How much Toyota Tacoma can Tow?

Toyota Tacoma Towing Capacity: A Tacoma Double Cab can tow 3,500lbs if it has a 2.7L 4cylinder engine. The Tacoma Double Cab can tow 6,400lbs with a 3.5L V6 motor.

While both engines are available for the SR5 and SR5 trims respectively, higher trims such as the TRD Sport and TRD Off-Road can only be bought with a V6 engine.

I created an article to determine the towing capacity they haul. After doing a bit of study, crunching the numbers, and then putting all the data together,

I discovered that the 2000-2022 ToyotaTacomas have some impressive capacities and even more remarkable figures if fitted with the optional accessories I discuss in this piece. Let’s look at some of the information to find out what they’re capable of!

What is the Tongue Load of a Tacoma?

A tongue load can be defined as the weight that is able to be put on the trailer hitch.For the majority of trailers, this figure is about 10-15 percent of the total trailer weight.

Toyota states that for all their engines that a towing weight that is 10% must not exceed. So, a maximum towing weight of 6800 lbs is limited to the tongue weight of 6800lbs.

How do you ensure that you don’t overstep this amount? When towing using any truck, it is essential to ensure that the weight of your tongue is not more than 15%. However, if you own a Tacoma then it shouldn’t exceed 10 percent.

You can confirm this by measuring the weight of the tongue that is on the trailer. It’s true, there are scales that can detect the tongue weight of a trailer that is up to 5500 lbs. This is shown below.
