What should I look for in a used SUV I can use for towing?

While we have little trouble believing you won’t find an SUV that will meet your needs at any Third Coast Auto Group facility, our team of product experts also believes you’ll have a better buying experience if you know what to look for. The chief difference between a traditional body-on-frame SUV and a crossover SUV is how the two platforms are built.

A body-on-frame SUV shares a lot of DNA with pickup trucks, which will allow for more capability. Crossover SUVs are often derived from a sedan chassis with unibody construction. A crossover SUV is likely going to be easier to drive and more comfortable than a body-on-frame counterpart.

Which kind of SUV is best at towing?

Generally speaking, a body-on-frame SUV like a Chevrolet Tahoe or Suburban is going to offer the best-in-class towing specifications. These platforms are, at least, available with a V-8 power plant that will deliver the kind of towing capacity a large, heavy trailer or boat rig will require.

On the other hand, there are a lot of three-row crossover SUVs that will have a towing capacity of around 5,000 pounds. This will likely prove more than enough towing capability for a majority of Third Coast Auto Group customers. Additionally, crossover SUVs often have better fuel economy, but advancements are happening with body-on-frame models all the time.
