Pickup trucks are do-everything vehicles, but they come with compromises, and not everyone wants to drive and park one every day or pay to fill one with fuel. If you’re not towing commercial loads on the regular, an SUV might be a better fit, especially since larger ones can tow nearly as much as a full-size pickup. Plus, SUVs offer far more options when it comes to size, seats, and features. They might not be right for the farm, but if you’re just looking to tow your toys on vacation, these are some of our favorite non-truck tow vehicles for all sizes and budgets.
Just remember two important factors: First, the exact trim level you buy may have a different towing capacity than the maximum number advertised for that model, so be sure to check the manual. Second, how much your vehicle can tow is a function of how much it’s hauling in the cargo area. So before you go and max out your truck or SUV’s trailer hitch, make sure to subtract the weight of any passengers and cargo you’re also bringing with you.
