i-FORCE 5.7L V8

i-FORCE 5.7L V8

Tundra’s 346 cu.-in. i-FORCE 5.7L V8 produces 381 hp and 401 lb.-ft. of torque. Pair it to a 6-speed automatic transmission with a standard Tow Package101 that includes added engine and transmission oil coolers, and you’ve got one truck with heavy-duty towing capabilities.

Massive ring gear

Massive ring gear

To handle the torque of Tundra’s i-FORCE 5.7L V8, our engineers fitted the rear differential with a massive 10.5-in. ring gear. This allows use of an aggressive 4.30 rear axle ratio to help amplify and transfer to the ground the 401 lb.-ft. of torque the 5.7L V8 produces.

Disclaimers

  • 101. Before towing, confirm your vehicle and trailer are compatible, hooked up and loaded properly and that you have any necessary additional equipment. Do not exceed any Weight Ratings and follow all instructions in your Owner's Manual. The maximum you can tow depends on base curb weight plus the total weight of any cargo, occupants, and added vehicle equipment. "Added vehicle equipment" includes additional standard/optional equipment and accessories added by the manufacturer, dealers, and/or vehicle owners. The only way to be certain of your vehicle's exact curb weight is to weigh your vehicle without passengers or cargo. [Calculated with the new SAE J2807 method.] Installation of a tow hitch receiver or other accessories located near the rear bumper or side-door kick sensors may require disabling or removing the kick sensor, and the sensor operation setting in your vehicle should be turned off.
