Title says it all - Anyone towing with a Lexus GX 460?
If yes - what model Escape do you tow,
....and what do you like about it? Both towing, and when not towing.
I have done some research on it and it has good and bad things, (to me) from what I have read.
The most important good: towing capacity 6,500
Fairly nice to drive. Quiet. Tows well, supposedly.
The most significant bad points: (to me)
Swings to the right rear door. I bet this would whack a hitched Escape's Electric Trailer Tongue Jack..... Correct?
Drives somewhat more like a truck, as it is a truck frame design.
I am in NO rush to upgrade our tug, but I am researching SUVs that have more towing capacity than 5,000. We LOVE our Acura MDX but eventually it will need to be replaced - way down the road.
To be clear - my wife, my trusted mechanic, and I do not want anything for us that is domestic nor anything European for a tug. That is our bias, and you won't convince us otherwise.
Our strong preferences would be Honda, Acura, Toyota or Lexus, based on reliability, and our preferences.
We also do not want a pickup. Does not suit us at all
So you won't convince us to change our mind on these opinions.
Just a heads up. (Trying to avoid a debate)
