Hope to have my Ecodiesel delivered in a week or so. Very excited to finially be getting one! How do i know the tow rating? It has the tow package, brake controller, and 3.92 Axle ratio option. I dont have any plans to tow often, i was just wondering. But i will be using it daily as my work truck with the payload close to capacity. Looking forward to better than 14mpg like my 2008 tundra gets. Thank you in advance,
Mark

Welcome to the club! Glad to have you here. Others I'm sure will chime in with help on your tow rating. I believe there is an FCA website you can plug your VIN into and it will give you all the specifics. You can also do a little math by using the placard on the inside of your driver's door.

Welcome from Maine. You will like towing with the Ecodiesel. My 2017 Ecodiesel gets better mpg towing a 2,000lb trailer than my hemi Ram did empty, Have towed up to 10,000 lbs with ease, btw.
