A truck isn’t something you buy just to have it as a status symbol. You buy a truck because you have a job that needs to get done. It helps to know your truck has the capability to do that work and that it can do it right. No one likes finding out their truck isn’t up to the job.
To save you a lot of time, and headache, you want to know you have a truck that is powerful enough. There are a lot of trucks out there, so it’s important to be discerning in your choice. While power is important, you also want to make sure it offers more than just a lot of towing power.
2019 Toyota Tacoma Hauling Capability
The best place to start when trying to figure out how much power you’re getting is the hood. The 2019 Toyota Tacoma is packed with a 2.7L engine that gets 159 horsepower and 180 lb-ft of torque. If you need more, then you can upgrade to a 3.5L engine that puts out some serious power. It generates 278 horsepower and 265 lb-ft of torque.
The big question that remains is, what can these trucks haul? The 2.7L engine can tow up to 3,500lbs. It can also handle a payload of just over 1,500lbs. For those that need to haul a lot of stuff, the 3.5L engine can tow up to 6,500lbs and lug a maximum payload of 1,420lbs. That’s a lot of power across both engines.
