SUV is not only good for bringing many passengers at once in a good performance, but some of it is also great for towing, carrying boat or cabin at the back. There are some best SUV for towing, and every car will have a different performance to bring upgraded cabin and compartments.
Best SUV for Towing: Around 2,000 to 3,500 Pounds
Some cars can only bring 2,000 pounds. Some compact SUVs like Subaru Forester, Honda CR-V, and also Toyota RAV4 can tow for 1,000 to 1,500 pounds. If you pay not a bit heavy things, these SUVs may be right for you. The first SUV we have can carry at least 2,000 pounds. It is Mazda CX-5. The engines system it used is the 2.5 litre with the 4-cylinder engine which can generate 184 horsepower. Without towing, of course, you can enjoy the better performance of it.
Kia Sportage is the second choice for the best SUV for towing. This car can pull for at least 2,000 pounds. With 2.0 litre and 4-cylinder engine, it produces 260 horsepower. It comes in another series, with 2.4-litre engine 4-cylinder that will generate 182 power.
We also have 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan which included in one of the SUVs for towing. The quite popular in Europe. With its diesel engine, that is available in Europe; this even can pull for at least 3,200 pounds. In the US, it is only able to bring around 2,200 pounds. With its 2.0 litre 4-cylinder engine, it will generate 200 horsepower.
Towing Above 3,500 Pounds
If the cars we have above are not enough, some SUVs brought for more than 3,500 pounds. Jeep Cherokee with its 3.2 litre V6 can generate 271 horsepower. With its 9-speed automatic transmission, it can haul for at least 4,500 pounds, which is great enough for towing camper or a boat. The Audi Q5 is another choice for pulling quite heavy things. With its 2.0 litre 4-cylinder engine it even can carry for more than 4,000 pounds. The driver can generate 220 horsepower. Well, though the performance is below than what Cherokee brings, the price of this car is more than it.
Another best SUV for towing is the Outlander; this series of Mitsubishi is different from what the Outlander sport brings. With 3.0 litre V6 engine and 6-speed automatic transmission completed with a top-trim GT V6 model, it can haul for at least 3,500 pounds.
The SUVs from Mercedes-Benz have the same towing capacity which is 3,500 pounds. It comes in a different engine, the GLK250 Bluetec and also the GLK350 which is more conventional. The 3.5-litre V6 engine can generate 302 horsepower.
Some of the cars above are the best SUV under 25000. Mazda comes in that price range; even it is below 25K. Most of the vehicles above come with a price below $30K, but you can also look for the used one if you want one car that is more affordable.
