What I Need to Know Before I Tow
There are quite a few things to know before you pick out the right vehicle for your towing needs. What used to be a strict pickup market has changed with SUVs becoming more powerful than ever before. Basically, larger trucks and SUVs tend to be heavier, and in that, you’re towing capacity may go down. Longer vehicles are more lightweight, giving you more pounds to tow. That’s the big difference when you shop light-duty versus heavy-duty pickups. The smaller pickups like the Chevrolet Colorado provide plenty of punch, usually allowing you to tow 10,000-12,000 pounds which is more than enough for a boat or camper. But if you’re hauling big-time cargo, you may want to look into heavy or super-duty pickups, like the Ford F-Series. These monsters are built to tow, with capabilities sometime exceeding 20,000 pounds.
Best Vehicles to Tow Trailers
When it comes to towing, it’s not always about horsepower, but the torque it provides. The bigger the engine — especially when you get into diesel engines of heavy-duty vehicles — the bigger the torque. But if you’re looking for an ideal vehicle to load up a trailer for a family vacation, you don’t necessarily need a massive or even midsize pickup. Take the Chevrolet Tahoe SUV for example. When properly equipped, the Tahoe can haul almost 9,000 pounds, which is more than enough for a couple of ATVs or even another car. When it comes to towing, you have plenty of options to choose from.
Innovative Towing Technology Makes Hauling Easy
Of course, it’s not always all about power. When you are driving a big heavy-duty pickup with farm equipment in tow, or have a hitch hooked up to the family-friendly Honda Pilot, you know you’ll want all your precious cargo to arrive safely. In today’s high-tech world, towing has never been easier. Many vehicles are starting to come standard with rearview or multi-view cameras, while tow-assist features — like sway control and lane assist — are available to take the dangers of the open road out of your hands.
