I tow with a V8 Touareg and can't even feel it behind me except if I am in the mountains. Can't tow as much as a truck but it has a 7k tow rating. Not too shabby IMO.

Range Rover sport supercharged pulls the reasonably small x2 like itís not there. Towed it with a 2015 3.5 eco boost platinum before which was phenomenal and marginally more stable given the wheelbase increase but the rover is not too far behind. 510hp and big torque in the rover means almost no down shifting even with boat which is nice.

510 will get it done. Drove one of the new disco diesels on a LR setup off-road course and was impressed. Not sure I could give up my truck bed and pay a premium for one though. A lot to like and a few things i just couldn't get past.

Long time friend of mine who owns a hot rod shop. Sadly this truck is gone but have a two door 110 with a td5 now thatís so much fun to drive. Has a td5alive tune so it will fly, may tug the boat around the neighborhood to see how it does. Will post pic later
