Are you looking for an SUV that can perform double-duty as a family-friendly vehicle while also being able to effectively tow a trailer or caravan? We’ve evaluated the top-rated SUVs for towing and ranked them so that you can quickly see which models stand out. A great towing vehicle, ideally, has sufficient torque so that steeper gradients or a heavy trailer don’t have a severe impact on performance and driver confidence.
Our evaluations will compare towing capacities between closely-matched rivals, plus our testers will provide their opinions on how refined and potent each SUV’s powertrain is. With a choice of gas or diesel, rear-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive, it’s a bit of a maze to find the model that best suits your needs, but our reviews aim to take the complexity out of this job for you. Of course, just because an SUV can tow doesn’t mean it is also efficient, so we’ll also compare economy between similarly-priced models. It’s all the information you need, quickly and easily accessible.
