Yep, The 2.0L diesel tows a claimed 5500 lbs. LR claims 4409 for the 2.0L gasser. I wouldnt even tow anywhere near 4K lbs with this vehicle. Probably around 2500 lbs would be the most I'd be comfortable with. Which is a small trailer.dunno where you got 5500lbs from, LR states 4409 for the 2.0L Turbo
LOL! it'll handle that. My weight is boat + a pretty beefy tandem axle trailer with brakes. + another 300+lbs worth of a full tank of fuel and gear. I just wouldnt want to pull mine to the lake for 2.5 hours both ways. That little 4 banger would be under constant boost and I dont trust the little ZF 9 speed to handle it, much less the rest of the LR driveline. It would be a check engine light waiting to happen...Ill keep the boat towing to my truck.my boats at 3200 + trailer single axle with brakes... only need to pull it up a ramp and into storage about 500ft from ramp
hopefully it doesnt fall apart =P
This is the one Im gonna get.Dealer installed hitch is kinda of interesting.
While the hitch looks great from the back, and the flip down electrial keeps it really clean, the fact that they hack off part of the bumper to installis kind of ghetto.
It still looks 100x better than the uhaul or curtis hitches ive seen + warranty, but man they just cut the plastic around the bump area i guess.
That is a LR hitch. Part # VPLCT0160what is that?
is that 3rd party?
