When the job called for hauling a trailer full of hay to a Sierra Mountain ranch, the super-sized, four-door, 2016 Toyota Tundra CrewMax handled the job with ease.

The Tundra’s 5.7-liter V8 engine with Trailer Brake Control tackled the ups and downs of the mountain roads like a pro, leaving plenty of power available for additional push when necessary.

With the standard Tow Package, 5.7-liter V8 Tundra offers a maximum tow capacity of 10,500 pounds (4×2 Regular Cab). So equipped, Tundra uses a one-piece towing receiver integrated into the frame prior to bed installation.

The Tundra’s Tow Package also comes with a tow/haul shift mode that adjusts throttle sensitivity and transmission shift control. This helps in favoring and holding lower gears when accelerating or decelerating.
