I just bought my second GMC Envoy 4x4. I have been very happy with the vehicle in general and the ease with which it sets up for towing.

Same with the 2005 Trailblazer I pull, but I'd certainly give the CRD a hard look if I was fulltiming with a diesel pusher...One pump for both vehicles...

We've towed both the Grand Cherokee and the Wrangler (although only one at a time ) all over. Jeeps are perfect for towing. Just keep the transmission in park, unlock the steering wheel one click, and slide the transfer case into neutral. You can get a dummy key, without the digital security feature, that will let you unlock the wheel while not allowing the vehicle to start.

We had a friend who forgot to unlock the wheel once and towed his GC a couple of hundred miles with no damage to the Jeep. They are tough and will let you go anywhere you want to go.

I tow a '04 Chevy Colorado 4x4 Crew Cab.One thing I like about it is the steering wheel does not lock when you turn the switch off (you don't have to leave a key in the switch). I have been towing mine for two years now with no problems.And by the way you don't rack up miles while towing either.

I've towed a Jeep Grand Cherokee, Saturn LW300 and now a Jeep Liberty. All have handled well. If weight were not a factor and I had a DP I'd probably tow my Avalanche.

We like most everything about our Liberty -

the only negative I can offer is that because it has a short wheelbase and narrow track it also has a high center of gravity. Because of this it bounces around a lot behind the coach, leading to the "tail wagging the dog" feeling.

Honda work fine, they write the instructions in the owners book. No brainer. No equipment to add and no fuses to pull.
