Toyota Tacoma Tow Package

As we stated before, drivers can get the most towing power out of their Tacoma when it is equipped with the Toyota Tow Package. This package includes the Trailer-Sway Control system that helps make towing large items easier. Whenever your Tacoma drives through the wind while towing, the trailer can start to sway and cause some unsafe conditions. Trailer-Sway Control helps maintain control over your trailer by applying pressure to the brakes on individual wheels and managing engine torque.
