One capability that most new vehicle owners are unaware about is towing. In an effort to help, we crafted these helpful tips to help you tow like a pro.

Made to Tow

We have plenty of cars that are perfect for towing. One such vehicle is the Jeep Grand Cherokee, which is built to haul and transport equipment with ease, featuring an available towing capacity of up to 6,200 lb. This powerful SUV can also tackle all types of terrain, and it boasts top-class safety and security features. And for truck enthusiasts, the RAM 1500 truly astounds with a max 12,750-lb towing capacity.

Safety First

Much like anything else, the best way to tow like a pro is to practice, practice, practice. Try driving down side streets or low-traffic areas with something in tow and learn what adjustments you’d need to make when you finally haul your equipment through heavy traffic and various driving conditions.

Towing Basics

Knowing your vehicle’s towing capacity is important because you don’t want to overload your vehicle while driving. But you should also consider things like the types of hitches needed and how to safely hook up a trailer. Perfecting these basics will make your towing experience a whole lot better.
