Range Rover any model?

I have seen how this topic has been discussed for a specific model, but could almost any Range tow? Or only the sport. I have a 2002 xstar, looking for all around car and tow car.

Anything but the new evoque model will do just fine! Especially with the supercharged motor and the air suspension. I have a great thread discussing the rover sport towing.

yeah just be weary of the repair costs. apparently most things were ironed out by the 2010 model, and you get the facelift with the 2010. so if you can swing it id go nothing older than 2010

My only concern with towing is how fast the brakes wear out (that's without towing), and how expensive they are to replace. Unless you're made of gold I hope your handy and can do the maintenance yourself. My boss has a 2011 or 12 full size range rover and his most recent service was something like this if I remember correctly:
Rear brakes- $900
Oil change- $450
Seat air filters- $120
Windshield wipers- $70

And there was some other stuff I don't remember. Seems like the new sports and full size range rovers get 20 - 30k tops on brakes under normal driving.

I think pre-2010 or 11 had longer lasting brakes though.
