Is a 2013 Toyoto Highlander Limited adequate to tow a 3500 lb traler?

Asked by Airplane58 Oct 01, 2013 at 11:15 PM about the 2013 Toyota Highlander Limited V6 AWD

Question type: General

I am looking at vehicles that I can use on occasion to tow a 3500lb. Would a Toyoto Highlander Limited 6 cylinder AWD be a good vehicle for this purpose. I prefer not to move up to a truck based vehicle if possible.

It is only rated for 1500LBS, so no it won't.

All of the 2013 V6 Highlanders come with what used to be the pre tow package - heavy duty radiator with engine oil cooler, 200 watt fan coupling and supplemental transmission oil cooler, giving it a 5000 lb towing capacity.
