Here Are Some Family Vehicles That Can Tow

No matter how small or large the vehicle, inevitably some owners will want to transport something that won’t fit inside. For bulky light loads, a roof rack might suffice, but for larger, heavier items, a trailer is required.

Fortunately, a wide range of crossovers – and some sedans – can be used to haul a trailer. The following slides will highlight just some of the family vehicles that are trailer ready.

However, before towing be sure to check your owner’s manual. Trailer towing is not recommended for many models, even vehicles for which trailer hitches are readily available. Also, consider the need for the trailer to have brakes, and any requirements to reduce the weight of what you can tow to offset pound-for-pound what you place in the vehicle, including passengers. You really do need to read the fine print.
