So, once you get your brand-new 2022 Toyota Tacoma, it’s a good idea to brush up on your safety towing tips. Here are a few things to put into practice.

  • If you’re new to towing, go to an empty parking lot and practice driving around with whatever you plan on hauling. This will help you feel more comfortable on the road. One of the great features of your 2022 Toyota Tacoma is Toyota Safety Sense, which gives you the best safety features to keep you and your passengers protected. 
  • Get your truck auto-serviced to make sure you’re in the clear since the last thing you want is a tire going out with a 2,000-pound trailer to haul. 
  • Make sure you don’t exceed the maximum towing capacity. If not, you might cause damage to both the engine and structural components. 
  • Driving with a couple thousand more pounds in your truck means you have to brush up on your defensive driving skills. So make sure to use turn signals, give yourself plenty of space to come to a stop, and don’t tailgate!
