My Terrain is the V6 with front wheel drive. Weighs in just under 3900 lbs as I recall. It tows just fine on the dolly- I do not flat tow. I have the W24 chassis with the 6 speed Allison and 8.1 liter. I have towed something as heavy as 4400 lbs (right at the limit) and as light as 3000lbs. Obviously the lighter the better, but the Terrain is a nice middle of the road weight. Across flat country I set the cruise and go. In mountainous country (to be conservative) I generally unhook whatever I'm towing and the DW drives the toad behind. Works well for us. Good luck.

I have a Forest River Car Tow with surge brakes pulling a 2010 Corolla. If it wasn't for the back up camera, I wouldn't know it was back there.

American Car Dolly with electric brakes and a break away with a Ford Focus. Worked well for years. Used to tow 4 down. I will not go back and do that again.
