Looking for a new tow vehicle? Consider the 2017 Toyota Tundra. Our test truck came saddled with all the necessary equipment to haul your toys around, including engine and transmission fluid coolers, tow/haul mode, and an integrated trailer braking system. But all these features would be nothing without the ability to haul. This Tundra came with the optional 5.7-liter V8, which cranks out 381 horsepower and is rated to tow up to 10,100 pounds.

Toyota won't sell you a long bed crew cab. That's one of my issues with the Tundra. I own a 2014 Double Cab Long Bed. You have to chose between cab space and bed space. Toyota figures that the double cabs are used as SUVs and the owners won't haul anything big. I rarely carry more than one passenger, so the Double Cab fit me, but I would rather had the option for a Crew Cab with a long bed.

In reply to maj75:

The double cab seems to be pretty much the same size a crew cab was 10-15 years ago anyways. My dad's '15 Tundra has the crew cab and it is freaking HUUUUUUGE. I'm 6'3 and have probably a foot or more of room in front of my knees sitting in the backseat, feels like riding in a limo. The bed definitely limits utility, as it's not even 6' IIRC, but at the same time I don't know if I'd want to try to park anything much larger. I think your comment on viewing these more like SUVs is spot on.
