The Toyota Tundra Can Haul a Space Shuttle and More
The 2013 Toyota Tundra is a monster workhorse. This full-sized pick-up has ultimate capability and a resume to back it up. The Toyota Tundra showed off it’s strength when it was pushed to the max hauling the 292,000-pound Endeavor space shuttle. While this was a one-time event and milestone for the Tundra not to be recreated by folks at home, the Toyota Tundra is definitely no slouch and is more than capable to handle anything Birmingham can throw its way.*
The powerful Tundra is offered in five models that can tow more than five tons as well as a 4×2 Regular Cab Long Bed. Standard on the Limited and Platinum trim levels, an available 5.7-liter V8 produces 381-hp and 401 lb-ft of torque and is matched to a six-speed automatic transmission. With the i-FORCE V8 engine the Tundra has a max towing capacity of 10,400 lbs when properly equipped.** The available Tow Package adds an integrated towing hitch receiver that’s been attached down the frame rails with a dozen high-strength bolts, a hydroformed crossmember for increased towing strength, oil and transmission fluid coolers, a heavy-duty battery, upgraded alternator, seven-pin connector and Tow/HAUL mode. Available on all 6-speed automatic transmission models with the Tow Package, Tow/HAUL mode extends the Tundra’s use of lower gear ranges to aid in smooth transmission function, while helping increase acceleration, pulling power and engine breaking. Not only that, but the rear differential has been fitted with a 10.5-inch ring gear that’s strong enough to handle the increased stress from heavy loads. The amazingly powerful Tundra can give the most thanks to the impressive axle-ratio courtesy of this package, which makes the 2013 Toyota Tundra the best equipped pick-up for your towing needs.
*Never tow beyond a vehicle’s published towing capacities. Always consult the Owner’s Manual.
**The maximum you can tow depends on the total weight of any cargo, occupants and available equipment.
