The workday doesn’t stop for gas, and neither do you. With available 38 gallons of capacity, you can rest assured that you’ve got the fuel you need for life’s longer hauls.
Built to Tow and Haul
With features like staggered, outboard-mounted shocks, heavy-duty TripleTech™ frame with integrated towing hitch receiver—plus a trailer hitch that utilizes 12 high-strength bolts integrated into the frame—Tundra’s i-FORCE 5.7L V8 has the available brawn to help you tow over 10,500 lbs.1 A combination meter—which includes a voltmeter, coolant temperature, fuel and engine oil pressure gauges—helps you keep an eye on your Tundra’s vitals. And Tundra has been SAE J2807-rated since 2010—adopting the standard tow ratings as set by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE).
Tundra’s integrated 4/7-pin connector is integrated into the rear bumper and is ready for any compatible trailer. So all you have to do is hitch up, plug in and haul out.
Towing power/TOW/HAUL Mode
Tundra offers more ways to tow some of your biggest toys. Sixteen different configurations in six trim levels can all tow 10,000 lbs.1 or more, and the 4×2 Regular Cab Long Bed with available 5.7L V8 can haul up to 2,080 lbs.2 Included on Tundra models with the 5.7L V8 is the TOW/HAUL Mode that intelligently holds lower gears longer, so Tundra won’t keep shifting or “hunting” for the right gear when towing. And this system also increases throttle response, pulling power and engine braking, helping you tow with confidence.
Integrated Trailer Brake Controller
It doesn’t matter if you’re hauling your boat or a full load of lumber1,3—when you come to a stop, you want your trailer to do the same. Lucky for you, an Integrated Trailer Brake Controller4 comes standard on all 2017 Tundras equipped with the 5.7L V8. When connected to a compatible trailer, this system will allow you to adjust the amount of trailer braking based on the weight of the trailer. In other words, it’s one more way Tundra gives you more control over what’s going on behind you.
Big trucks tow big toys, so Tundra comes standard with Trailer-Sway Control (TSC).5 TSC works in two ways: by detecting trailer sway and applying brake pressure at individual wheels, and by controlling engine torque to help stabilize the trailer, and your precious boat.
Before towing, confirm your vehicle and trailer are compatible, hooked up and loaded properly and that you have any necessary additional equipment. Do not exceed any Weight Ratings and follow all instructions in your Owner’s Manual
. The maximum you can tow depends on base curb weight plus the total weight of any cargo, occupants, and added vehicle equipment. “Added vehicle equipment” includes additional standard/optional equipment and accessories added by the manufacturer, dealers, and/or vehicle owners. The only way to be certain of your vehicle’s exact curb weight is to weigh your vehicle without passengers or cargo.
2 “Payload capacity” is the calculation of GVWR minus curb weight and should be used for comparison purposes only. Do not exceed any Weight Ratings and follow all instructions in your Owner’s Manual. The maximum you can haul (payload) depends on base curb weight plus the total weight of any cargo, occupants, and added vehicle equipment. “Added vehicle equipment” includes additional standard/optional equipment and accessories added by the manufacturer, dealers, and/or vehicle owners.

3 “Payload capacity” is the calculation of GVWR minus curb weight and should be used for comparison purposes only. Actual curb weight, as opposed to the published curb weight, is affected by added vehicle equipment, as described below in the towing disclaimer.
4 The Integrated Trailer Brake Controller is an electronic system that operates in tandem with a properly equipped trailer with an electric braking system. It is designed to help the driver maintain trailer control by increasing or reducing trailer braking based on trailer weight. It is not a substitute for safe towing practices. Factors including speed, road conditions and driver input can all affect trailer braking control. See Owner’s Manual for details.
5 Trailer-Sway Control (TSC) is an electronic system designed to help the driver maintain vehicle control under adverse conditions. It is not a substitute for safe driving practices. Factors including speed, road conditions, weather and driver steering input can all affect whether TSC will be effective in preventing a loss of control. See Owner’s Manual for additional limitations and details.
