Flex Your Towing Chops with a Toyota SUV
Whatever you need to tow, you’ll never have to worry about heavy loads when you have a capable Toyota SUV at your disposal. When it comes to towing things like campers, people often think that pickups get the job done best.
While that’s understandable, we want you to know that Toyota SUVs can tow considerable loads as well. More specifically, the Toyota Land Cruiser, Toyota Highlander, and Toyota 4Runner are great choices if you often tow things for work or recreational purposes.
Equipment Needed to Tow
As you look over the Toyota models we have here at Bob Smith Toyota, you’ll quickly notice that some body styles are better prepared to tow than others. For example, an SUV is the better choice over a sedan if you plan on hauling a pair of dirt bikes or a jet ski.
Although trucks and SUVs are normally smart picks for people who tow often, not all of them are built with the equipment needed to pull objects safely. Here are some things you may need to add to your Toyota SUV if you’re going to tow:
If your SUV needs towing supplies installed, we encourage you to make an appointment at our La Crescenta, CA Toyota service center. Our factory-trained, certified technicians will install everything you need to tow responsibly.
Lose your towing pin or clip? You can always pick up a replacement in our Toyota parts center near North Hollywood, CA as well.
Tow-Worthy Toyota SUVs
Toyota SUVs don’t shy away from heavy lifting. One such vehicle is the Toyota Land Cruiser. Powered by a mighty 5.7-liter V8 engine that produces 381 horsepower and 401 lb-ft of torque, the Toyota Land Cruiser can tow up to 8,100 pounds when it has the right equipment.
The Toyota 4Runner is another good candidate when it comes to towing. Outfitted with a 4.0-liter V6 engine, the Toyota 4Runner can tow a maximum of 5,000 pounds. Not to be outdone, the Toyota Highlander can tow as much as the Toyota 4Runner when it’s equipped to do so.
As far as towing is concerned, looks can be deceiving. A prime example is the eye-catching Toyota RAV4; despite its comparatively diminutive size, this Toyota SUV has a max tow rating of 3,500 pounds.
