Towing & Hauling Safety

The standard 5.7-liter Aluminum i-FORCE V8 engine puts out 381 horsepower and 401 lb-ft of torque, which allows you to tow up to 10,200 pounds when properly equipped. Back in the truck bed, you'll get an available 1,730 pounds of maximum payload. The following features will help you achieve your towing goals:

  • Standard Tow Package
  • Standard Trailer-Sway Control
  • Available Integrated Trailer Brake Controller

The standard tow package includes a tow hitch receiver, a heavy-duty battery, and intelligent features engineered to making towing as easy as possible for the driver. The TOW/HAUL Mode and 4-/7-pin connector allows you to easily hitch up and plug in your trailer and helps with stability by increasing throttle response, pulling power, and engine braking.

The available Integrated Trailer Brake Controller and standard Trailer-Sway Control features let you adjust the amount of trailer braking and will detect trailer sway and apply braking pressure to individual wheels.

Driver-Assistant Safety Features

The Tundra comes equipped with the standard Toyota Safety Sense™ P system, which includes four driver-assistant safety features designed to act as a second set of eyes on the road.

  • Pre-Collision System with Pedestrian Detection

This feature was created to help you mitigate or avoid frontal collisions. It will warn you if it senses you rapidly approaching a vehicle, pedestrian, or object and can even apply braking pressure in the event of an emergency.

  • Lane Departure Alert

This feature helps you stay securely in the center of your lane by monitoring the road markings and alerting you if it senses you drifting. It's activated when you're traveling at speeds of 32 MPH or higher.

  • Automatic High Beams

You'll have advanced visibility when traveling at night, thanks to this feature. It automatically toggles between low and high beams depending on your surroundings.

  • Dynamic Radar Cruise Control

This feature allows you to travel at a preset speed when you're driving between 25 and 110 MPH. The vehicle-to-vehicle distance control helps you maintain a safe distance between you and the car ahead of you.
