I don't think your Prostar will be too much for your Volvo, but the ladder on top of your boat makes me wonder how much equipment is inside too.

Good looking combo.


Surprised you don't know the tow rating of a vehicle you're towing with.

Looks like 4000# for the FWD and 5000# for the AWD. Volvo does not change it;s tow ratings based on engine size.

Air compressor, table saw, belt sander, nail gun, drill, deck screws, dozen sheets of cdx, dozen 2x4x12 treated, some shingles, cooler, 48 pbr tallboys, jerky, torch, solder, flux, 10 sticks 1/2 copper, 2 slabs of granite, a bottle opener and some nail clippers. Should be fine, right?

my new tow rig: 2014 GMC Sierra 1500 SLT 5.3L with 3.42 rear. Pulls the X2 with ease. The new 5.3 is muuuch improved. So far I am averaging 17 mpg over 1400 miles with 90% city driving.
