Compact Crossovers That Tow

Compact Crossovers That Tow

We had a lady on the national show call last Saturday who wanted to tow a 5000-pound trailer, but did not want a full sized SUV or a pickup. That proved to be a challenge, because once loaded, her trailer will most likely top out over 6000 pounds.

Some compact crossover SUVs are rated for towing, although 4500 pounds is the most I can find. Here is a list of 10 compact crossovers that have some towing ability:

1. 2015 Jeep Cherokee, 4,500 pounds.

2. 2015 Audi Q5, 4,400 pounds.

3. 2015 Chevrolet Equinox/2015 GMC Terrain, 3,500 pounds.

4. 2015 Ford Escape, 3,500 pounds.

5. 2015 Mercedes-Benz GLK250/350, 3,500 pounds.

6. 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander, 3,500 pounds.

7. 2015 Lincoln MKC, 3,000 pounds.

8. 2015 Volkswagen Tiguan, 2,200 pounds.

9. 2015 Kia Sportage, 2,000 pounds.

10. 2015 Mazda CX-5, 2,000 pounds.
