Summer time is here – and in Alabama that means it’s time for some fun on the water! When you’re shopping for a new vehicle, pick one that is perfect for hauling your boat and your friends to Smith Lake to beat the heat this summer.
Powerful Toyota Tacoma
Don’t let the small size of the Toyota Tacoma fool you – this truck can definitely pull its weight. As a matter of fact, Toyota’s new V-6 engine now generates 278 horsepower — an increase of 42 horsepower from last year’s V-6. The 2016 Tacoma compact truck can now tow up to 6,800 pounds – more than enough towing capacity for your boat.
Rugged Toyota Tundra
The Toyota Tundra is another great truck for hauling your boat. All of the different trim levels and configurations of Tundras can tow up to 10,000 pounds. The 4×2 Regular Cab Long Bed with available 5.7-liter v8 can tow up to 10,500 pounds! The TOW/HAUL mode intelligently holds lower gears longer which keeps your Tundra from having to hunt for the right towing gear. The 2016 Toyota Tundra will help you tow just about anything with ease and confidence.
Mighty Toyota Sequoia
If you prefer an SUV to a truck, then check out the Toyota Sequoia. The Sequoia can tow up to 7,400 pounds with ease. TOW/HAUL mode will select the right transmission shift points to enhance the engine’s power and make towing easier. Trailer-Sway Control (TSC) manages the engine’s torque and applies brake pressure to each individual wheel to help you maintain complete control of your load. With the Toyota Sequoia you can haul your boat, your friends, and your family to Smith Lake in style.
