When I upgraded to the X-10, however, I needed a bigger tow capacity, so the XC60 went away and we got a Honda Pilot instead. The Honda is definitely more capable as a tow vehicle but not as fun to drive as the XC60.
isn't the tow capacity of the Honda Pilot like 4500 lbs? i would think with the X10 and trailer you would be very close to the limit.
i liked the looks of the bmw x5 diesel but the touareg tdi tow capacity was higher so i went with that.
