Are you in the market for a new pickup truck? If you are, there are probably two things that you are looking for more than all of the gizmos, gadgets and doodads that other truck companies throw into the interior of their trucks and those are power and towing. When you choose the 2015 Toyota Tundra you aren’t only getting Toyota brand reliability, but also exceptional utility. The 2015 Toyota Tundra’s power and towing features make this pickup truck one of the most capable on the market and a top Toyota model.
One of the interesting attributes of the 2015 Toyota Tundra is its all V-8 power lineup. Unlike other truck brands there is no V-6 power drop off and with that V-8 power comes excellent towing and payloads. Base Tundra models are powered by a standard 4.6-liter i-Force V-8 engine that produces 310 horsepower and 327 pound-feet of torque. You can step your game up with the monster 5.7-liter i-Force V-8 that shells out a 381 horsepower and 401 pound-feet of torque as well.
Power doesn’t do much for you without a purpose and that is where the Toyota Tundra’s extensive list of towing features comes in. Equipped with the 5.7-liter V-8 power core and the Toyota Tow Package, the Tundra has a 10,500-pound maximum towing capacity and a max payload of 2,080 pounds. The Tow Package adds a one-piece towing receiver, incorporated into the truck’s frame for strength and specialized rear springs allow for full-load rear suspension height and a smoother ride while towing.
The Towing Package also upgrades mechanical systems to protect your vehicle with improved cooling and electrical systems, engine and transmission oil coolers as well as a heavy-duty battery and alternator. 2015 Tundra models outfitted with the 5.7-liter V-8 also get an Integrated Trailer Brake Controller, so you can closely monitor braking while towing large loads. A Tow/Haul mode adjusts throttle and transmission sensitivity to assist in towing performance as well. One of the more valuable towing features available for the 2015 Toyota Tundra is a Trailer Sway Control to keep your load stable by counteracting exterior forces.
