The 2020 Toyota Tundra Tow Package & Features

The 2020 Toyota Tundra has an immense towing and payload capacity for your toughest Chula Vista jobs or your DIY home projects. However, no Tundra is complete without the Toyota Tundra Tow Package. Not only does this tow package give you additional towing power, but it enhances your truck with the equipment it needs to improve handling and traction on difficult terrain.

In the Toyota Tundra Tow Package, you can expect outboard-mounted shocks and a powerful TripleTech™ frame with an integrated trailer hitch receiver to give the Tundra the muscle it needs to pull your trailers or equipment through Carlsbad. The package also comes with twelve high-strength bolts driven into the frame to secure the trailer hitch for added support. The Toyota Tundra Tow Package also allows you to keep a close eye on your truck’s performance as you tow, thanks to a combination meter with a voltmeter coolant temperature, fuel, and engine oil pressure gauges. Here are some of the other features you can expect on the Toyota Tundra Tow Package.

  • TOW/HAUL Mode and 4-/7-Pin Connector: The 4-/7-pin connector allows you to tow larger items easily because the system automatically holds lower gears for longer, increases throttle response, and more.
  • Integrated Trailer Brake Controller/Trailer-Sway Control: These innovative systems let you control the amount of trailer braking and will apply the brakes automatically if trailer sway is detected.
  • Available Tundra Tow Mirrors: Available as accessories, Toyota Tundra tow mirrors for the driver side and passenger side let you keep a better eye on your cargo.
