This SUV has been towing our 2005 23LSV with no problems on our flat Texas roads for the past several years. As we've been thinking about a boat upgrade, it has me concerned about the ability of this vehicle to tow these heavier new boats. We mostly tow less than 5 miles to the local ramp but will do a couple of 3-4 hour trips each year as well...mostly on flat-ish roads.

So what are your thoughts around towing a new 2018/2019 Malibu 23LSV with this vehicle? I believe the Expedition it is rated at a max of 6,000 pounds, and the new LSV dry is 5K. Then you add a full tank of gas and you're already up to 5,400 plus gear which seems to be pushing it's limits.

Time for a truck or think this SUV can get it done for what are mostly shorter trips?
