Max Towing Capacity

The 2018 Toyota 4Runner has a max towing capacity of 5,000 pounds* when properly equipped. This should be plenty powerful to haul small to mid-size boats and trailers and smaller RVs depending on the weight of your equipment, cargo, and passengers. Remember that the 5,000-pound rating is the best-case scenario. If you are unfamiliar with calculating your specific vehicle’s max towing capacity after factoring in weight loads, visit your local Toyota dealer and they can help guide you.

Cargo Space Specs

The cargo space dimensions of the 2018 Toyota 4Runner will be different depending on your trim level and configuration. Three-row models will have less space than two-row models. However, folding rear seats allow plenty of storage space no matter which configuration you need. Two-row base models offer 89.7 cubic feet of total space behind the front row seats while three-row base models offer 88.8 cubic feet. Keep in mind that the weight of the gear in your cargo space will affect your max towing capacity.

*Before towing, confirm your vehicle and trailer are compatible, hooked up and loaded properly and that you have any necessary additional equipment. Do not exceed any Weight Ratings and follow all instructions in your Owner’s Manual. The maximum you can tow depends on base curb weight plus the total weight of any cargo, occupants, and added vehicle equipment. “Added vehicle equipment” includes additional standard/optional equipment and accessories added by the manufacturer, dealers, and/or vehicle owners. The only way to be certain of your vehicle’s exact curb weight is to weigh your vehicle without passengers or cargo.
