Subaru Towing Capacity Information

Johnson Subaru has a Capable Subaru Crossover and SUV for Chapel Hill!

The Subaru brand is one that excels in both practicality and fun, complete with fuel efficient engines, spacious and comfortable interior designs and a lot of convenient amenities! You might not know this, but many of the Subaru brand's crossovers and SUVs have a towing capacity, meaning that, like many other SUVs, a Subaru crossover or SUV model can carry heavier items in both its trunk and attached on the back as a trailer, within reason. Let's check out the capabilities of our top Subaru SUV and crossover models, then you can come test drive the one that works best for you here at Johnson Subaru of Cary.

The Subaru Crosstrek and the Subaru Forester

Both of these models are well-known for their versatility not just in what they can tow, but in their off-roading capabilities as well. The Subaru Forester and Subaru Crosstrek both have a towing capacity of up to 1,500 pounds, which can be instrumental in towing small, towable RVs and campers as well as other small items like flatbed or bicycle trailers.

In order to enhance their off-roading capabilities, these two crossover models feature a 8.7-inch ground clearance and the Subaru Symmetrical All-Wheel Drive, which is one of the top-rated crossover SUV all-wheel drive systems by many experts. Most trims of the Subaru Forester, and all trims of the Subaru Crosstrek, feature X-MODE®, which utilizes as much of the engine power output as possible and aids the all-wheel drive system and Vehicle Dynamics Control (VDC) for optimal traction on any surface, no matter how slippery or rocky.

The Subaru Outback- Durham's Better Option for Towing!

Right now, the Subaru Outback has the highest towing capacity of all Subaru crossover and SUV models and can tow up to 2,700-lbs, which gives you a few more options for transportation when it comes to heavier objects. If you're moving into a new apartment in Raleigh, for example, then the Outback will definitely be helpful when transporting a U-Haul or other smaller storage containers. Plus, as an added aid when towing heavier loads, all trim levels of the Subaru Outback come standard with Hill Descent Control (HDC) which, when activated, allows you to maintain a consistent speed when traveling up and down a hill, even with heavier items in tow.

Coming soon later this year will be the 2019 Subaru Ascent, which is one of our biggest and most capable SUVs, complete with a 5,000-pound towing capacity.
