Same with the access cab 4x2 models (no tow package available = 3500-lbs). The access cab V6 4x4 (with tow package) has a capacity of 6500-lbs.

The double cab 4x2 (no tow package available) has a max capacity of 3400-lbs (not a typo, 100-lbs less), the 4x4 V6 double cab short bed (with tow package) can pull 6500-lbs, and the 4x4 V6 double cab long bed (with tow package) handles a max of 6400-lbs (again not a typo, 100-lbs less).

The max tongue weight for all V6 models with tow package is 650-lbs. The tongue weight for all 4-cylinder models and those without tow packages available top out at 350-lbs (double cab 4x2 = 340-lbs).

So,the 2012 Tacoma Crewcab isn't available with tow package? Our 2011 Crewcab with V6/auto has the tow package and says it can haul 6,500lbs. I'm towing a 7x10 single axle trailer with our Boss Hoss trike and the total weight is approximately 2,800lbs. It seems to work fine.
