Your SUV can be equipped to tow at least a modest payload. However, it cannot tow the same amount as a pickup truck. Knowing the load limits is essential.

  • 2WD 2.5-liter engine (any transmission) – 1500 pound limit

  • 2WD 3.0-liter engine – 3500 pound limit
  • 4WD 3.0-liter engine – 3500 pound limit
