Towing - (Australia)

August 9th, 2007

Both CRDi and 3.3 V6 Sorento models have a class-leading 2,800kg braked towing capacity (750kg unbraked), unchanged from the previous 3.8-litre Sorento. That's between 12 percent and 64 percent greater towing capacity than its competitors and that means capacity to tow a bigger boat or caravan or horse float.

Sorento's new 2.5-litre CRDi engine has optimal gearing to take advantage of its lowdown pulling power, with 392Nm of torque available from just 2,000rpm.

The selectable dual-range 4WD and strong ladder-frame construction of Sorento are real assets when it comes to pulling a loaded boat trailer up a slippery boat ramp, or towing a caravan to those hard-to-reach camping spots, or pulling a horse float carrying two horses out of a muddy yard.
