Guide to Toyota Trucks’ Towing in Manassas, VA

2024's Guide to Toyota Truck Towing Capacities

When you find yourself in need of towing a dirt bike or a boat, you must have a vehicle that can properly and safely handle the load. Two of the most popular Toyota vehicles for towing are the 2024 Tacoma and the 2024 Tundra. For information on these Toyota vehicles' towing capabilities, check out our comprehensive guide.

What Is Your Vehicle’s Towing Capacity

Knowing your vehicle’s towing capacity is as important as knowing how to properly equip it. A few of the important terms you’ll need to know are:

  • GVWR (Gross Vehicle Weight Rating): This is the maximum loaded weight of your vehicle that the manufacturer has determined to be safe.
  • GCWR (Gross Combined Weight): This is the total weight that a vehicle can handle safely.
  • Tongue Weight: This is the downward force that can be exerted onto the back of a load or vehicle that is being towed.

Whatever your vehicle’s towing capacity, it’s important to drive safely when towing anything on the roads. Towing boats, trailers, or other vehicles takes time to get used to, so always take caution.
