Cars with towing trailers
In order for the transport of the trailer to be safe for you and your car, you must follow certain technical safety rules and choose the right vehicle. The vehicle in which the trailer will be transported must withstand a high load. The recommended tensile force should be from 2.2 to 3.5 tons. The car must also be all-wheel drive. The best option for the operation of the trailer is to use an SUV or pickup, for example, Toyota Hilux, Mitsubishi L200 or VW Amarok, as these large machines can cope with the tasks best. However, many drivers cannot get used to the design and size of these cars. Therefore, in this article we will consider the car brands that are best suited for moving the trailer and have a nice appearance.
A list of cars that are best suited for transporting a trailer
- Audi Q7: high driving comfort, sophisticated operating system. Q7 is a “weightlifter” with a large towing load. Audi has made a lot of efforts to reduce the weight of the car. Compared to its predecessors, the modern model is about 300 kg lighter, but still weighs almost 2.2 tons. Thanks to the basic diesel engine, the power of this vehicle is 218 hp. All-wheel drive provides good performance with still reasonable fuel consumption. Audi Q7 falls in love not only with its attractive appearance, but also with high driving comfort, which is due to the air suspension, quiet interior and impeccable level of safety. One of the critical remarks is the operating system, which takes time to get used to. In general, Audi put a very convincing car on wheels. With a load of up to 3.5 tons, the Q7 can move even the heaviest trailer towing cars.
- Jeep Grand Cherokee: a beautiful car with impressive capabilities. Visually, it is on a par with Audi, but in some respects loses to the previous premium car. The six-cylinder diesel engine vigorously drives a heavy car, works reliably, with low vibration. Unfortunately, it disappoints with high fuel consumption. However, the diesel is an ideal engine for frequent use of the car as a tow. The engine handles trailers weighing up to 3.5 tons well. The Grand Cherokee has a very rich basic equipment, which includes both luxury and important assistance systems. Prices for a new car in the minimum configuration start at $ 70,000. It should be noted that in everyday life, you can expect huge maintenance costs for the Jeep Grand Cherokee.
- Land Rover Defender: both stylish and practical. The car differs from its predecessors by a solid interior, very good use of space due to the angular body and excellent off-road characteristics. Defender can hook trailers weighing up to 3.5 tons. Thanks to an intelligent all-wheel drive system and a powerful engine, Land Rover handles heavy trailers well.
