When you’re towing with the 2016 Toyota Tundra, switch to Tow/Haul mode for increased throttle response, pulling power and engine braking. The tow/haul mode holds lower gears longer and won’t shift gears unnecessarily, creating a smoother and more efficient towing experience.
To give you more control over your Tundra and your trailer, all 2016 Tundras equipped with the 5.7L V8 have an integrated brake controller. This allows you to adjust trailer braking depending on the weight of your trailer. Trailer sway control also helps to stabilize trailers as you drive by applying brake pressure to individual wheels and controlling engine torque.
