Sport utility vehicles have gotten softer and softer over the past two decades. The demand for more compliant, road-going characteristics – as well as the need for improved fuel economy – have both resulted in leagues of modern SUVs that don’t offer the rugged capability of their predecessors.

But among this field of “soft-roaders,” some SUVs remain that still offer the power and capability to tow and haul respectable sums. Some of these vehicles use more traditional body-on-frame construction, more like that of a truck. Others use high-horsepower engines and drivetrains to get the job done. 

Whatever the method, just know that these vehicles all reside on the more expensive side of the budget spectrum. That said, consider the fact that many, more affordable SUVs have about as much towing power as a minivan. 

Read on to learn just how much some of the most capable modern SUVs can tow.
