Re: Towing with Toyota Tacoma V6 Have a 4-runner v6 and tow at times. It does the job but is not a speed buggie. You just have to remember you are doubling the weight the motor is pulling around.
We tow our 17 SD with a 2wd 2010 Toyota Tacoma Prerunner and feel it is more than adequate for the job. We drive for best fuel economy and avg 15 mpg at 60 mph. On steep passes we allow our speed to drop off to a minimum of about 40-45 mph and stay in 4th gear depending on traffic building behind us, etc.
