For those who tow frequently, towing capabilities are a serious matter when shopping for a new vehicle. While pickup trucks are great for towing, you sometimes don’t want to sacrifice the passenger space or interior comfort. With this in mind, AutoTrader.com has put together its list of the Must-Shop SUVs for Towing.
This year’s list includes two great Chrysler Group vehicles, the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango. Both deliver the ideal combination of best-in-class towing capabilities and interior comfort.
“Having both the Jeep Grand Cherokee and Dodge Durango make AutoTrader’s list of Must-Shop SUVs for Towing recognizes our commitment to offer our customers best-in-class towing designed for maximum capability and optimum fuel economy without sacrificing vehicle performance or luxury,” said Reid Bigland, Head of U.S. Sales, Chrysler Group LLC, in a statement. “These SUVs provide the ultimate combination of power, towing and efficiency all rolled into one great package.”
The 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee gives buyers three options when considering towing abilities. The standard 3.6-liter V-6 engine delivers 290 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque and can tow up to 6,200 pounds. For best-in-class towing of up to 7,400 pounds, you can choose between the 3.0-liter EcoDiesel V-6 or the 5.7-liter V-8.
If you need more seating space, the Dodge Durango offers seating for up to seven in three rows while still delivering the towing power you need. Two options are available on the Durango. The base 3.6-liter V-6 will let you tow up to 6,200 pounds, while the 5.7-liter HEMI V-8 bumps that up to 7,400 pounds.
