A Toyota Tundra can pull the space shuttle but stopping on a down grade is a different story. Towing capacities are base upon stability and pulling and stopping but should never exceed the cars weight. unless electric trailer brakes are used . but again if trailer would jack knife it will push your car into a tree without stopping because weight has overtaken control.

Not trying to sound like dodging the question but, If it's not written in your owners manual, your best bet is to call local toyota dealer & ask to be sure. Wouldn't want to guess on that & end up blowing your transmission or engine.

SOURCE: What is the towing capacity for a 87 surburban

A good rule of thumb is you do not want the tail to be wagging the do, (trailer heavier than the vehicle). My 1987 Chevy suburban pulls a 1969 Airstream 29 foot travel trailer that weighs about 6500 lbs and I have my car loaded with my tools, blocking, and much other stuff and I would guess that it weighs 6500 to 6800 lbs, so about even. After traveling more than 12,000 miles with it and having no problems I believe that I have a good match-up. When going up grades like I-8 into San Diego (have doen that one twice) I down shift the transmission as needed and in second gear doing about 35 mph seems to be best. My 350 has been modified with a new timing chain with setting of cam timing of 6 degrees advance which brings the power curve down to the RPMs range where most of us drive (not at 4500 RPMs).Hope that this helps you.

Vehicle towing capacity chart


A) Depends on the hitch you have and what it is rated for. Most car hitches (non truck or SUV) have a tounge weight rating of 500 LBS. This is the weight that is put on the actual connection of car and trailer. B) To not kill your transmission, do not exceed a total trailer weight of more than 1/2 the vehicles curb weight. (Dry weight of car full of fuel) Car transmissions and frames were not originally designed for towing, and exceeding 1500 LBS total trailer weight is considered dangerous (can get trailer weave and sway easily) and will cause excessive strain on drive train components. U-Haul has an online guide that will basically tell what type of trailer you can haul and its maximum allowed weight.

Please help we have just brought a Renault master short wheelbase van to tow a 24 foot caravan is this ok


the most important thing in towing is knowing the weights and limits of the tow package,, In your owners manual, it should list the towing capacities , if you have an after market tow hitch, check to be sure that the hitch is rated for the vehicle, Just because a tow hitch is placed on a vehicle, doesn't mean it can tow just anything, again,, the weights must be compatible for each vehicle. I had my vehicle equipt with a tow package that is added to the transmission of my vehicle to enable towing

Can this vehicle be made towable? Can the Factory towing package be added to the vehicle if it does not have one?


If you mean can the vehicle be equipped with a hitch unit and modified so that it can tow loads yes, it can. In most cases you have to get a special hitch, usually a low profile receiver type hitch and a transmission cooler if it's not already equipped with one. If it has a transmission cooler already they will put a heavy duty one in instead of the light duty one that more than likely came with the vehicle.

I need to know what the towing capacity is for my 2000 chevy silverado half ton is?


Tow capacity for that vehicle is about 10.000 lbs (adjusted for wear and age). This number reflects max tow capacity with good tires (proper rating and good condition) with all suspension components in good used condition. The capacity of your tow hitch must also match your load and assumes proper trailer weight distribution and tongue weight.
For best results, I also recommend that you use a good quality synthetic gear lube in the differential and synthetic fluid in the transmission, as well as a trans cooler if not so equipped.

What is the maximum towing capacity for a 1987 chevy caprice brougham..? ( the 305 engine) Thanks!


With a 20 year old vehicle, the original towing capacity does not apply.
I'd set a limit of whatever the weight of your vehicle is as a safe number (if car weighs 3,200 lbs, tow weight is 3,200lbs Max.) Trailer weight is also determined by the capacity of the hitch.
Trailer loading should be at 60% of weight on hitch.
Don't forget...you need a fully functional cooling system, adequate (most times additional) transmission cooling, and good suspension (air shocks, variable load rear springs and fresh differential lube). If this is done, you may be able to add 20-30% more trailer weight.
One item often overlooked is that it really does not matter if you can pull a load...you need to be able to stop it. Make sure your brakes are in really good condition!!!

What is the to capacity of a 2006 kia sportage i don't have the owner's manual and want to tow a trailer


Most cars are about 1/2 ton capacity(1000 pounds) Towing a small trailer should be fine as long as the weight at the hitch ball is less than 200 pounds. Load the trailer so the most of the weight is on the trailer not your car.Remember to keep the tire pressure correct on the trailer and your car and give yourself plenty of stopping space as the car will respond slower with the extra weight. Also try to take off kind of slow and easy so you dont over work your cars transmission. An add on type auxillery transmission cooler is recommended.
I hope this info helps you.

1998 Windstar w/o tow package need solution to increase tow capacity


You may be getting into a very dangerous situation. You definitely need a tranny cooler, a brake controller installed in your van, electric brakes on all wheels of whatever u r towing, an oil cooler (engine), and u still may be in big trouble. Factory towing packages usually include heavy duty brakes, alternator, heavy duty suspension, bigger tires, sway bars, etc. So even w/ some add-ons u still won't match a factory set up, meaning u shouldn't tow that much weight. Check out edmonds.com/ownership/howto/articles/44921/page001.html for more info, be careful, and good luck, countrycurt0

Towing capacity


While a Grand Prix isn't really designed to tow,the capacity of the car would be 4 adults and luggage.In my estimation,that would equate to roughly 1000 pounds that the car can comfortably haul around.Now,you do have to realize that this is going to be ******* the transmission especially,and the engine secondly.Definitely install an auxiliary transmission cooler to help dissipate the heat from the trans fluid.A close look at the rear suspension and possibly any upgrades there will help out with the tongue weight that a trailer creates.Check and see how much the trailer actually weighs before proceeding.Unlike cars of 30 years ago,that were outfitted with V8,rear wheel drive, truck engines and transmissions,today's cars really aren't the ideal choice to tow with,as a front wheel drive transaxle is pretty light duty.Towing a lawnmower and small trailer,or a jet ski,no problem.A camper trailer would need to be really light,and the other issue might be brakes.Check your brakes really well on your car,as they will also be stopping the weight of whatever you're towing.Good luck.
