The original Toyota tow hitch: an ideal companion, now and for the long term
An original Toyota tow hitch is a high-tech structural element that, when properly integrated into a Toyota vehicle, allows customers to operate their vehicle's towing capacity without worry. For Toyota, the tow hitch is only one component of a complete system. That's why Toyota ensures that all components of each vehicle are optimized for towing, from the engine to the transmission, including oil cooling and electrical systems.
Functionality dominates the design process, and Toyota engineers consider all aspects of the towing system, as it will have to operate in various towing situations. For example, establishing the cantilever angle of the tow ball is essential, because if this angle and the distance between the rear tires and the ball carrier are too large, the ball carrier may rub against the ground when towing on a slope.
