Toyota Tacoma Towing & Performance Specs
The total available towing and payload capability of your Tacoma depends on a few independent factors, such as engine, transmission, cab, and bed style chosen:
- 2.7L 4-Cylinder: The base engine is a 2.4L 4-cylinder powerplant capable of 159-hp and 180 lb.-ft. of torque. This engine can be paired with either a 2WD drivetrain or an optional 4WD unit for superior handling on and off-road. The 4-cylinder engine is mated with a 6-speed automatic transmission and offers access to as much as 3,500 lbs of total towing capability and up to 1,620 lbs of available payload, making it a tremendous light-duty companion for those who want to drive around Encinitas.
- 3.5L V6: The available 3.5L V6 powerplant does the heavy lifting, generating as much as 275-hp and up to 265 lb.-ft. of torque. The V6 motor is offered with both the 4X2 and 4X4 drivetrains and can be mated to either the 6-speed automatic or optional 6-speed manual transmission on selected trims. When drivers choose the Access Cab, standard bed body configuration and 2WD, the Tacoma delivers up to 6,800 lbs of available towing capability and as much as 1,540 lbs of total payload capacity, providing the perfect set-up to get you and your off-road toys around Carlsbad for a weekend of fun.
