Nice to see the 6,000 pound tow capacity up from the 5th gen's 5,000 lbs. But curious why it's 500 lbs less than the new Tacoma which gets up to 6,500 pounds towing capacity?

Since 4Runner and Tacoma share same platform and powertrains, what's making the difference?

It couldn’t be a wheelbase thing could it, with the larger length of the Taco allowing for more stability when towing? Otherwise powertrain is the same & I’d think frame construction would be too, minus additional length. I didn’t look up weight or payload ratings for either vehicle.
