What toad would you pull?

We are pulling a 2004 Chevy Trailblazer as a toad. It's been a great vehicle and easy to pull but it's about time to replace it. I like the fact that it has a full disengaging transfer case. What would you pull if you were buying a 2015 to 2019 toad?

I will be watching with interest. I have been looking for a 2014 Honda CRV. I am told its the last year of a 4 down towable. But at this point I am open to other ideas. I like the fact that you can get all that you need at Etrailer it has been sorted out and they have all that you need.

80,000 miles of towing our Jeep Grand Cherokees. 2005 and 1999.

I think they are the cheapest option for my remaining RV days.

Just got a 2017 grand Cherokee overland. 2300 for the full tow bar hookups using nsa tow bar and wireless tow lights probably canít get any cheeper for the setup.

It depends on how much you call tow and what you need from the toad. We pull a "11 Sierra Crew or a "19 Grand Cherokee according to our needs.

Could depend on your Tow limits, but i just got a 2019 GMC Canyon 4X4. Curb weight right at 4K, fully disengaged Transfer case, Will still carry my bikes and Kayaks, and gives me off road capability if desired. I switch this year to 4 down and looked at several vehicles and this has been a great choice both in price and tow-ability.

I've been looking at the Canyon. The trans on the 4x4 has the true neutral like my Trailblazer. I wish GM would use the same in vehicles like the Acadia.

I have been very impressed with my Canyon. The V6 is the only way to go and it has tons of power with great tow capacity. MPG has been right at 20Mpg Itís also about 2-300 lbs lighter than the Colorado. Very quiet and I like the interior better than the Chevy. Only complaint was finding an SLT model for the accessories I wanted. Price point between the canyon & Colorado was negligible in 4x4 class

Didn't even consider that there would be a weight difference between the two.
