The Most Important List of What the Toyota Tundra Can Tow

Toyota Tundra

The 2018 Toyota Tundra in its baseline SR trim can tow 6,800 lbs. When it’s equipped with the available 5.7L V8 engine, it can tow up 10,200 lbs. Different types of configurations will change the exact amount the Tundra can tow, but it ultimately comes down to a combination of the powertrain and other trim level options you select.

And what does 10,200 lbs actually look like? To answer this question, we crunched the numbers to determine what 10.200 lbs truly look likes in the form of:

  • Toyota Priuses
  • Hoverboards
  • Cats
  • Tacos

How Many Toyota Priuses Can the Tundra Tow?

The curb weight of the 2018 Toyota Prius averages about 3,050 lbs. With a maximum towing capability of 10,200 lbs, the Tundra can effectively tow around 3 2018 Toyota Priuses - one for you and two of your best friends. Why not take your Priuses on a road trip some time?

How Many Hoverboards Can the Tundra Tow?

With an average weight of 260 lbs, the Toyota Tundra can tow around 39 hoverboards. We won’t judge you for having 39 hoverboards, but at least you can tow them straight to the landfill with your fidget spinner collection.

How Many Cats Can the Tundra Tow?

The average domestic feline weighs about 9 lbs, which means that the Tundra can tow 1,133 cats. But you’re also going to need a lot of litter boxes for those 1,113 cats. Actually, on second thought, you probably shouldn’t be towing so many cats.

How Many Tacos Can the Tundra Tow?

It’s two hours before Taco Tuesday at the time of writing, and this author is hungry. Hungry enough, in fact, for the 27,200 tacos the Tundra can tow.

Increase Fuel Economy in your 2016 Toyota Tundra with These Tips

2016 Toyota Tundra

Toyota Tundra

Trucks like the 2016 Toyota Tundra are great for a number of things like towing, hauling, and off-road capabilities. Unfortunately, they aren-t always the most fuel efficient. Luckily, there are some things you can do to make the most of your gas tank. Here-s what you should know about the highs and lows of fuel efficiency.

Driving Style. So, your truck holds a certain amount of fuel. While this is true, there is much more to fuel efficiency than the size of your gas tank. A large part of how well your truck does in fuel efficiency is due to your driving habits. For instance, do you drive aggressively? It may be time to relearn the basics of drivers ed, because speeding, rapid acceleration, and braking are all huge gas wasters, lowering gas mileage by 33% at highway speeds and 5% around town. Sensible driving - actually following the speed limit, not tailgating, and so on - will not only increase fuel efficiency for savings at the pump, but it-s much safer for everyone on the road, including yourself.

Remove Extra Weight. That cargo bed may be one of your favorite features of your pickup truck, but you may want to leave it empty when you can. Any extra weight your vehicle has to lug around equals to decreased fuel efficiency; and the heavier the item, the more it plummets.

Hit Cruise Control. Cruise control is a nice feature for making long drives more comfortable behind the wheel, but this handy button is actually a good way to save on gas. With the help of cruise control, your truck will remain at a constant speed, which helps eliminate extra fuel from being burned unnecessarily.

Adapt to Changes in Temperature. Depending on where you live (and drive), outside temperatures can range from the hottest of the hot to the coldest of the cold. Hot and cold temperatures both negatively affect fuel economy.

Cold weather, for instance, can significantly reduce fuel economy. This is due to a number of reasons, including:

  • Warming up a near-frozen vehicle before hitting the road burns gas and gets you zero miles per gallon.
  • Heated seats, window defrosters, and other extra features cause more power to be used.
  • Winter grades of gasoline have slightly less energy per gallon than summer blends.
  • The engine takes longer to reach its most fuel-efficient temperature.

Fortunately, there are some things you can do to help your truck better adapt to changes in weather, such as:

  • Parking in warmer places, such as a garage, to increase the initial temperature of your engine and cabin.
  • Minimize idling to warm the engine; they warm up fastest when being driven.
  • Avoid excessive use of seat warmers and defrosters.

For a Seriously Capable Truck, Opt for the 2015 Toyota Tundra

2015 Toyota Tundra

Toyota Tundra

The Toyota Tundra stands as a seriously capable truck. Tow rates match some of the best in its class and the TRD-Pro trim level offers impressive off-road-oriented capabilities. If you-re in the market for a full-size pickup, the 2015 Tundra offers many pros that make it worth your while.

New and Improved for 2015: The Tundra was given a major redesign just last year, but Toyota awarded yet another round of changes to the 2015 lineup. The Tundra no longer houses a V6 engine, and instead, offers a choice between two V8s. The 4.6-liter V8 is paired to a six-speed automatic transmission, producing 310 horsepower and 327 pound-feet of torque. The 5.7-liter V8 is also paired to a six-speed automatic transmission, but it-s much stronger with 381 horsepower and 401 pound-feet of torque.

?Tow rates are excellent for both engines with a max tow capacity of 6,800 pounds with the 4.6-liter and 10,500 pounds with the 5.7-liter. Note that these rates depend on body style and for properly equipped trucks.

Power, towing ? what else could the Tundra offer? You guessed it - speed! In zero to 60 mph testing, the Tundra TRD Pro sprinted it in just 6.7 seconds - a quicker-than-average time for the segment.

The Tundra also gained a new TRD-Pro trim level, which comes with off-road capable gear, like skid plates, off-road tires, Bilstein shocks and raised suspension.

More to Enjoy: While the Tundra offers power, towing and speed, it also boasts much more. The 2015 lineup features a huge list of trim levels that come with content that will please most.

The SR begins the lineup and comes with better-than-average entry-level equipment and features. It has keyless entry, heated mirrors, full power accessories, cruise control and two 12-volt power outlets. It also has a matte black lower front bumper, rear bumper and grille surround, plus tow hooks and windshield wiper de-icer. Electronics include a generous list with everything from Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity to 6.1-inch Entune touchscreen interface and four-speaker audio system with CD player, USB port, iPod interface and auxiliary audio jack.

Skipping up to the Limited trim means many more upscale niceties to make your time on the road more enjoyable. It has heated mirrors, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, heated front bucket seats and 20-inch alloy wheels. It also features a premium grille and bed rail system. More tech features are also included on the Limited with a navigation system and smartphone app suite that integrates into the Entune touchscreen.

Another trim worth mentioning is the Platinum. With it comes real luxury content, such as power-folding and auto-dimming outside mirrors, premium leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats and driver-seat memory functions. It also features more chrome detailing and special 20-inch wheels. Audio gets a big jump up with a 12-speaker JBL sound system.
