Typically when buying a car, we have several parameters established that we have to stay within for the vehicle we are purchasing. This is a smart way to shop and helps to ensure that you are getting the right vehicle to fit your needs.
At first, this is easy. I need a vehicle that has three rows of seats, AWD, and Bluetooth would be nice. Simple enough. However, once towing comes into play, it starts to be difficult to differentiate between the vehicles and their individual trim packages. Whether you are an off-road enthusiast, a contract worker, or in need of a vehicle that can do it all, towing is an important part of your life.
When it came to searching for our own vehicles, we discovered we had trouble determining what vehicle had a tow package, and what tow capacity that vehicle was rated for. That’s why we decided to build our own system, to make it easier to find the vehicle that is capable of towing your things. In our inventory, you can see that the vehicles are broken down for having a tow package or not, and what towing class that vehicle is rated for.
We have already covered towing capacity, so let's break down the towing classes, how exactly do they break down?
The different towing classes are broken down into five categories. Each class is consecutively rated for higher weight, ranging from as low as 2,000 lbs., up to an impressive seemingly impossible numbers. Each class has very specific parameters, knowing what class your vehicle falls within will ensure that you never over-tow your vehicle.
Some vehicles have hitches that do not fall within the typical hitch hierarchical structure. They still have tow ratings and tongue weight ratings that must be followed for your safety.
Towing can get confusing. Honestly, it even took us a long time to put all of this together with accurate information. We want your car buying experience to be as easy as possible, and that’s why our inventory page is broken down to show you what towing class each vehicle is in and if it has the tow package fitted. However, if you are to have any questions regarding towing or finding the perfect vehicle for you, give our Specialists a call and they will help you to decipher what vehicle is going to work best for you.
