For many, the 2014 Toyota Tundra makes a great investment, especially since it exudes a tough exterior and drives like a machine. But just how much can the 2014 Tundra tow safely? Knowing how much the 2014 Tundra tow capacity is an important part of responsible car ownership.
Since 2011, Toyota has been avidly complying with the J2807 tow standard implemented by the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE). As a result, the car manufacturer was recognized and given a Distinguished Service Award by the Texas Auto Writers Association (TAWA).

By ensuring this standard is met through a series of third-party tests, Toyota is able to comply with the industry’s requirements. In particular, the Tundra is the only full-size truck that has adopted this standard.
By voluntarily adopting J2807, Toyota is able to deliver the towing requirements to its 2014 Toyota Tundra owners. Added to that the assurance that the 2014 Tundra tow capacity was verified by a leading engineering organization in the industry, Tundra owners can trust that they paid top dollar for a vehicle that can truly deliver its promise.
