Best Trucks for Towing (With August 2020 Deals)
If your next adventure involves towing a trailer, you'll want to make sure you have the right vehicle for the job. Typical family crossover SUVs might be useful for towing a small boat or pop-up trailer, but anything larger will require a sport-utility vehicle or pickup truck with a higher tow rating.
We've compiled a list of the best trucks for towing ranging from midsize SUVs to heavy-duty pickups. Although tow capacity is the priority here, we've made our selections with an eye toward convenience. For example, most families shopping for a pickup are going to want a crew cab with a standard-length bed, so we've focused on that popular configuration. Likewise, we've given priority to trucks that offer driver assistance technology that takes some of the hassle out of dealing with a trailer.
Keep in mind that manufacturer tow ratings represent the maximum weight you can possibly tow with a given vehicle – when it's properly equipped with the manufacturer's towing hardware. In general, it's wise to stay comfortably below that threshold.
