2023 Toyota Tacoma Towing Capacity Chart

You can also read our guide on what makes a vehicle towing capacity to learn all the aspects that go into it.

Here’s a video showing the Toyota Tacoma being put to a real-world off-road and towing test:

Toyota Tacoma Braked Vs. Unbraked Towing Capacity

All vehicles have different towing capacities based on whether or not you’re towing a trailer that has trailer brakes installed.

Trailer brakes allow the trailer to stop faster than if only the vehicle is using its brakes, allowing the vehicle to tow more weight, so braked towing capacity will always be higher than unbraked towing capacity.

Toyota Tacoma Braked Towing Capacity: 3,500 – 6,800 lbs.

Toyota Tacoma Unbraked Towing Capacity: 1,500 lbs.

Toyota Tacoma Towing Capacity Factors

There are a few factors that affect the Toyota Tacoma tow capacity.

Engine Options

There were a total of six different engines over the span of 2000-2020, which were the 2TR-FE, 2GR-FKS, 1GR-FE, 2RZ-FE,5VZ-FE, and the 3RZ-FE.

Most of the 4 cylinder choices of these Tacoma engines had a towing capacity of 3,500 pounds without a tow package installed.

Some of the 6 cylinder Tacoma engines with tow packages installed had closer to a 6,500 pound tow capacity.

2WD vs 4WD

The drivetrain can affect how much weight a Toyota Tacoma can tow.

Typically, Toyota Tacoma 2WD models can tow a few hundred pounds more than the 4WD versions.

Number of Passengers

A big factor in calculating your vehicle’s towing capacity is how many passengers you’re carrying, which directly calculates into the vehicle’s GCWR.

This is true of all vehicles, not just the Toyota Tacoma, so always take into consideration the total load of your passengers and gear in addition to what you’re towing.

Toyota Tacoma Engine Specs

The current generation of the Toyota Tacoma has two engine options.

2.7 Liter 4-Cylinder

The base trim level of the Tacoma has a DOHC 16-valve 2.7 Liter 4-Cylinder engine.

This engine has 159 hp and 180 lb.-ft of torque, paired with a six-speed automatic transmission.

This engine is available in both RWD and AWD configurations.

3.5 Liter V6

This engine has 278 hp and 265 lb.-ft of torque, paired with a six-speed automatic transmission.

How much weight can a Toyota Tacoma pull is 6,800 pounds.

If you plan on towing anything with your Toyota Tacoma, you’ll need a tow hitch and wiring harness.

Depending on what you’re towing, you’re going to need a ball mount (aka a trailer ball hitch) so you can attach items for towing.

Make sure to get the right trailer ball size that matches your hitch and trailer.

Toyota Tacoma Tow Hitch

Trailer hitches come in different hitch classes, which are rated for different vehicle sizes and weight limits.

The Toyota Tacoma uses a Class 3 or Class 4 hitch.

Toyota Tacoma Tow Hitch Installation

If you’re considering having a tow hitch added to your Tacoma, expect to pay between $100 and $200 to have a tow package professionally installed (excluding the cost of the tow hitch and wiring harness).

If you’re handy and looking to save money, you can install the trailer hitch and wiring harness yourself.

Always follow the manufacturer’s directions and use proper safety precautions.

Here’s a great video walkthrough on a Toyota Tacoma trailer hitch installation:

Hitch Receiver Vs Rear Step Bumper Towing

Some vehicles allow for bumper towing, which means you can mount a tow hitch ball directly on the bumper instead of installing a tow hitch to the vehicle’s frame.

Can I Bumper Tow With A Toyota Tacoma?

The Toyota Tacoma does allow for bumper towing, but be sure to not exceed the hitch’s weight rating.

In most cases, it’s just easier and safer to use a frame-mounted hitch.

How Do I Know If My Toyota Tacoma Has A Tow Package?

toyota tacoma towing a travel trailer
The Toyota Tacoma can tow up to 6,800  pounds.

You can start by looking under the rear bumper of your Tacoma to see if you notice a trailer hitch or trailer ball.

That will give you a good indication of if you have a tow hitch already installed on your Tacoma.

Another way to research this is by checking the paperwork that came with your vehicle or taking it to a local dealer to see what’s installed.

Make sure to have your VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) handy if you call the dealer so they can look up the exact specs and whether or not your vehicle has any towing packages or features installed on it.
