The 7 Best Trucks for Towing

All the truck companies love to show commercials of themselves towing a boat or RV up a huge hill, but which ones actually do it best?

There are many things to consider when buying a new vehicle, especially when you want to buy a truck. Trucks come with tons of different features to help you out in many different scenarios. One of the most popular uses is towing things like trailers.

Towing seems like an easy thing to do. Once you get a hitch installed on your truck, you hook up whatever needs to be towed and get moving. The problem is that not every vehicle is meant for towing, so you need to be careful to choose the right one.

Read on to learn about the seven best trucks for towing that will get any job done.

1. 2019 Ford F-150

When people picture a tough and reliable truck, a Ford might come to mind. Ford has been a well-known and reputable American brand for over a hundred years.

The longrunning brand and its satisfied customers have created the reputation Ford is known for. Updates to the classic F-150 made the 2019 model an even better option for towing.

The full-sized truck can tow up to 13,200 pounds while maintaining its 25 mpg efficiency on the highway. Towing something like another car behind it won't be anywhere close to a challenge.

2. 2019 GMC Sierra 1500

GMC is another classic truck brand that has a winner in its 2019 Sierra 1500 model. It tows 12,500 pounds and includes spacious seating with a touch-screen dashboard. The best part for car buyers may be the news that GMC dropped the total price of the 2019 model by 18 percent, so more people have access to a truck that tows.

3. 2019 Ram 1500 Rebel

Recently redesigned, the Ram 1500 Rebel tows just over 12,500 pounds and can be upgraded to include the 395-horsepower V-8 for heavier tow jobs. If you're looking to tow on tough terrain, opt for the steel spring suspension over the adjustable air, since it provides better trail performance.

4. 2019 Toyota Tundra

Toyota fans can rejoice when they tow with the 2019 Tundra. It has all the spacious room and tech upgrades of a futuristic car, but still uses an iForce V-8 package and TRD dual exhaust system to tow over 10,000 pounds at a time. Upgrade to the Pro trim for better off-road towing.

5. 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

The 2019 Chevy Silverado has a sleek appearance and a powerful engine, which makes it a fuel-efficient choice for towing. Another bonus for buyers who take home this model is the option to upgrade the suspension, which counteracts extra towing weight when you need to move something as large as a boat.

6. 2019 GMC Canyon

Anyone looking for a compact truck will love the 2019 GMC Canyon. It gets 30 mpg on the highway, even while towing up to 7,700 pounds. It's known as a workhorse because it's reliable and affordable because of its recent price drop.

7. 2019 Nissan Frontier Pro-4X

Someone looking for a truck that can handle easy tow jobs and won't break the budget should test drive a 2019 Nissan Frontier Pro-4X. It tows a maximum of 6,290 pounds on all surfaces, which is due to its all-terrain tires and 10-inch ground clearance.

Consider Your Future Towing

What kind of towing do you expect to see in your future? The weight of what you'll haul will help determine which type of truck to get. Consider it while you test drive your favorite models and compare prices to find the right vehicle for you.
