What Are the 2019 Toyota Tundra's Towing and Payload Capabilities?

It's hard to single out one performance trait that's the most important in a quality truck like the 2019 Toyota Tundra. From off-roading to road-tripping, these vehicles are famously versatile in their capabilities. Many drivers do, however, turn to one metric as a barometer for truck capability: hauling ability.

Towing and hauling capability is baked right into the pickup segment, with pickup beds themselves offering a level of utility seldom found in other vehicle types. The new Toyota Tundra sticks to this trend, offering a strong frame and stout engines that allow for some impressive payload and towing stats.

Under the hood, the Tundra is one of the few truck models on the market that offers a standard V8. Both thee standard 4.6-liter V8 and the upgraded 5.7-liter V8 offer excellent power. If you're planning to haul heavy cargo or tow a large trailer, the new Tundra is a great pick. Add in a steel ladder-frame design and you're ready to take on heavy challenges.

Towing: With the base 4.6-liter V8, the Tundra is rated to tow 6,800 pounds. However, maximum towing capacity is achieved with the 5.7-liter V8. With the right combination of features, this engine lets the Tundra tow more than 10,000 pounds.

Payload: Both engine options allow for excellent payload capacities in the Tundra. Whether you choose the 4.6-liter V8 or the 5.7-liter V8, you'll be able to carry north of 1,600 pounds in the bed.
