Tacoma Towing Capacity

The Tacoma has a towing capacity of between 3500-6400 lbs. The contrast in towing capacities is dependent on the engine that’s equipped and whether or not the towing package is added. The minimum towing capacity of 3500 lbs is for both the 4cyl and V6 powered Tacoma. It’s only when you add the Towing Package to the V6 engine that the tow power is expanded to 6400 pounds. Despite its smaller size, the Tacoma is one competent hauler and can tackle more than you would think.
