What is the towing capacity of the 2022 Toyota Tacoma?

Let’s start with the basics – what is the 2022 Toyota Tacoma’s towing capacity? Here’s the breakdown:

The 2022 Toyota Tacoma towing capacity max is 6,400 lbs. To give you a clearer picture, this Orlando Toyota can easily pull things like a small camper, boat, or trailer behind it without issue.

However, the towing capacity depends on a variety of factors including the engine, trim level, bed, and cab style. To get even more granular with it, here’s another breakdown of a Tacoma SR Tow Rating:

  • A 4×2 Access Cab w/ 4-Cylinder Engine 6-Speed Automatic Transmission & 6-feet Bed can tow 3,500 lbs
  • A 4×2 Access Cab w/ V6 Engine 6-Speed Automatic Transmission & 6-feet Bed can tow 6,400 lbs
  • A 4×2 Double Cab w/ 4-Cylinder Engine 6-Speed Automatic Transmission & 5-feet Bed can tow 3,500 lbs

  • A 4×4 Access Cab w/ V6 Engine 6-Speed Automatic Transmission & 6-feet Bed can tow 6,400 lbs

As you can see, it really depends on which 2022 Toyota Tacoma you decide to put in the driveway. You can also throw in the Tow Package on this Orlando Toyota, which adds features like:

  • Class-IV towing hitch receiver*
  • ATF cooler (not available on manual transmission),
  • Engine oil cooler

Toyota of Orlando’s towing safety tips

However, before you hit the road with something behind you, it’s a good idea to brush up on towing safety tips. Here’s a general rundown of what you should keep in mind:

  • Practice beforehand in an empty parking lot or less-busy road to ensure you’re comfortable with towing, especially when it comes to making turns.
  • Get auto service before you head out. You’ll want our techs to check your truck’s tires, brakes, and lights especially, and it doesn’t hurt to check your trailer lights and tires, too. And don’t forget to have spares for both your truck AND your trailer on hand.
  • Don’t overload your truck – exceeding the maximum towing capacity can do both engine and structural damage.
  • Be sure to use your best defensive driving skills. Use your turn signals, don’t tailgate, and give yourself plenty of space to come to a stop – remember, you have more weight behind you now so you’ll need extra road to bring everything to a halt.
