The 2018 Tundra is highly-capable on the towing front, with a maximum towing capacity of 10,100 pounds (5.7-liter V8). In addition to its powerful engines, this can be credited to the 2018 Tundra's TripleTech frame, which features wide, full-boxed rails for the front portion, a reinforced C-channel under the cab and an open C-channel beneath the bed. The 2018 Tundra also offers a number of towing aids. The Tow Package’s selectable TOW/HAUL mode adjusts throttle sensitivity and transmission shift control, favoring and holding lower gears when accelerating or decelerating to help enhance control and safety. Trailer Sway Control can counteract handling forces that can cause the trailer to sway. The Tundra also comes with an integrated Trailer Brake Controller, and the driver can view its status on the multi-information display screen.
