Five SUVs that can tow more than 2,000 pounds
With the construction holidays approaching in Quebec, many families will want to swap the city for the campground and the house for the camper. That said, buying that camper means having a vehicle that can tow it.
The same goes for a boat, Sea-Doo or any other summer or winter thing that needs to be towed. What your towing is less important than the vehicle that pulls it.
With that in mind, we searched our inventory of pre-owned sport utility vehicles to find different models that will be able to meet your towing needs, both in winter and summer.
The Ford Escape has always stood out in the compact SUV segment because of its impressive number of engine options which together offer an amazing towing capacity. Two of the three engines available in the Escape range can tow more than 2,000 pounds. The most powerful engine offered in the Escape can even pull up to 3,500 pounds.
Often forgotten in the compact SUV segment, the Mitsubishi Outlander is nevertheless a very interesting choice.

That being said, the CX-5 also offers a towing capacity that will meet the needs of the vast majority of consumers.
