If you’re looking for a powerful new pickup truck in the Fairmont area, you’ve come to the right place! At University Toyota, we offer new and pre-owned Toyota vehicles in all shapes and sizes, designed to cater to a broad range of budgets and lifestyles. Whatever your driving needs may be, we’re confident we can find you something to love! 

 

 

When it comes to pickup trucks, we currently offer two exceptional models: the Tacoma and the Tundra. These are both powerhouse trucks, boasting strong specs and tough capabilities, but their performance specs are a bit different. Check out the guide below from the team at University Toyota for details on the Toyota truck towing capabilities, performance power, and more – then head to our inventory to see what we have available!

Toyota Truck Towing Capabilities & Performance

For the 2023 model year, the Toyota Tacoma is powered by a standard 3.5L V6, while the Tundra uses an i-FORCE MAX engine. Since it’s a larger model, the Tundra naturally has the edge when it comes to tow power and performance specs. The Tacoma, however, is the more affordable choice and is an excellent truck for daily driving and light-duty tasks around Kingwood! Compare the Toyota truck towing capabilities below:

  • 3.5L V6 engine
  • 278 horsepower
  • 265 lb-ft of torque
  • 6-speed automatic or manual transmission
