With a powerful V8 engine, smart and intuitive towing features, along with commanding comfort, the 2021 Toyota Tundra is the only truck you’ll want on your team. Put on your gloves and get dirty with us as we explore the 2021 Tundra’s payload and towing capacity.

Power You can Count On

Giving you the strength you need for all your tough jobs and brute force that the job demands is the standard 346 cubic inch i-FORCE 5.7-liter V8 engine. Generating 381 horsepower and 401 lb-ft of torque, power is sent through a six speed automatic transmission to ensure that you have power and strength everytime you hit the gas pedal. Ensuring maximum engine power is transferred to the ground, the 2021 Tundra is fitted with a massive 10.5-inch rear differential ring gear. Giving the truck a 4.30 rear axle ratio, you’re afforded the luxury of towing up to 10,200 pounds.

The 2021 Tundra doesn’t forget that you need a strong bed, so whether you choose the long bed or the short bed, this pickup truck’s payload capacity weighs in at a maximum 1,730lbs.

Fearlessly Capable

The 2021 Toyota Tundra rolls off the lot with a standard tow package that includes a tow hitch receiver, a heavy duty battery, and more, all designed to make towing as seamless as possible. However, the 2021 Tundra features a wealth of additional towing features that not only help you tow with ease, but also with confidence.

Ensuring that your truck can handle heavy loads with assurance, the 2021 Tundra is fitted with a 4-/7-pin connector, integrated directly into the rear bumper so there’s no fumbling with removing aesthetic parts and components to tow. Allowing you to tow with confidence, TOW/HAUL Mode allows the 2021 Tundra to hold onto lower gears longer, to avoid excessive gear hunting. Additionally, TOW/HAUL Mode enhances throttle response, pulling power, and even engine braking.

Every 2021 Tundra comes standard with an automatic limited slip rear differential that uses intelligent braking to hold wheels with no traction. Unlike traction control, which cuts engine power, the auto LSD optimizes torque and distributes it where it is most effective.

On models equipped with four wheel drive, the 2021 Tundra uses A-TRAC to optimize power simultaneously between the front and rear axles, so even on low traction surfaces, you can still tow, haul, and travel with confidence.
