2020 Toyota Tacoma Towing Capacity
How Much Does a 2020 Toyota Tacoma pull?
Maximum Towing Capacity - 7800 lb
The maximum weight that Toyota Tacoma is allowed to tow.
The maximum trailer weights listed are only applicable for altitudes up to 3280 ft (1,000 m) above sea level. With increasing altitude the engine power and therefore the car's climbing ability are impaired because of the reduced air density, so the maximum trailer weight has to be reduced accordingly. The weight of the car and trailer must be reduced by 10% for every further 3280 ft (1,000 m) (or part thereof).
Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) - 7900 lb
This is the maximum amount of weight Toyota Tacoma is rated to carry (engine, chassis, fluids, passengers, cargo, load - everything). It is often determined by the manufacturer and is indicated in the owner's manual or on the inside of the drive's door panel.
Curb Weight - 5200 lb
This is how much Toyota Tundra weighs sitting on the curb with no driver, passengers, no cargo and no load with all standard options.
Payload Capacity - 2700 lb
Payload is considered all the extra stuff you put inside your vehicle, whether it be passengers or a pile of rocks, that weight is all considered payload. You can increase it by:
  1. Upgrading the Rear Springs.
  2. Adding Coil-Over Shock Absorbers.
  3. Installing a Longer Truck Bed.
  4. Attaching a Trailer.
  5. Adding Bed Racks.
Front Gross Axle Weight Rating (GAWR) - 2557 lb
It is the maximum allowable weight that can be placed on a front axle of your Toyota Tacoma.
Rear Gross Axle Weight Rating (GAWR) - 4250 lb
It is the maximum allowable weight that can be placed on a rear axle of your Toyota Tacoma.
Determining 2020 Toyota Tacoma maximum towing capacity
Towing capacity can be described as the maximum weight that Toyota Tacoma is allowed to tow. To prevent damage, drivers are advised to always follow Toyota Tacoma stipulated towing capacity.

As a rule of thumb when using the Toyota Tacoma tow rating guide, the passenger's weight is always given as more than 150lbs.

In fact, optional equipment weight, the passenger's weight, and additional cargo weight should always be determined and added into the equation which will give the right maximum towing capacity for the vehicle.

Drivers must not exceed the Toyota Tacoma towing capacity as it can have serious consequences such as interfering with your car's breaking ability
The Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) has developed the J2807 set of recommended practices. The tow test procedures designed by the big brains at the SAE consist of a series of rigorous real-world challenges to determine the Gross Combined Weight Rating (GCWR) of a vehicle and trailer combination.
