What is an SAE J2807 Towing Rating?

If you’ve taken a look at the specs sheet of the 2022 Toyota 4Runner, you may have noticed that it says “SAE J2807 towing rating-compliant.” What does this mean? SAE stands for the Society of Automotive Engineers. This group came up with SAE J2807, a set of requirements and tests that includes all vehicles up to 14,000 pounds GVWR.

The purpose of this test is to ensure fair competition of trailer tow ratings for all vehicles with a model year of 2013 or later. Instead of solely going off of engine power, they take numerous factors into consideration, including:

  • Braking Performance
  • Total Control
  • Launch on Grade
  • Highway Gradeability
  • Flat-Out Acceleration

*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.
