Toyota 4Runner Towing Features

The Toyota 4Runner towing capacity is complemented by several of Toyota’s latest towing features, designed to make your Jackson rides as convenient and safe as possible. These include:

  • 4.0L V6 Engine: This powerful V6 engine is what makes the Toyota 4Runner towing capacity possible, delivering a strong 270 horsepower and 278 lb-ft of torque.
  • Integrated Towing Hitch Receiver: The 4Runner’s integrated tow hitch is designed to make it easy and safe to connect any type of cargo to your SUV. 
  • Wiring Harness with 4- & 7-Pin Connectors: The wiring harness and connectors makes it easier to connect your trailer lights, which in turn makes towing around Monticello and beyond safer at night.

What is an SAE J2807 Towing Rating?

If you’ve glanced at the Toyota 4Runner spec sheet, you might have come across the phrase “SAE J2807 towing rating-compliant.” SAE refers to the Society of Automotive Engineers, and SAE J2807 is a rigorous set of tests and requirements designed to standardize trailer tow ratings on vehicles from 2013 and later. Here are some of the criteria that the 2022 4Runner has been tested on, as well as its hitch design and vehicle dynamics:

  • Launch on Grade
  • Flat-Out Acceleration
