If summer makes you think of boats, jet skis, mountain bikes, or campers, we have a feeling you may be in the market for a vehicle with ample seating and a high towing weight. It’s always important to do your research and ensure your vehicle is up for the task. In fact, the Lincoln brand has plenty of resources out there like the Lincoln owner’s guide to towing to help you stay informed. And today, we’re here to give you some highlights regarding our top models for towing.
Believe it or not, even Lincoln sedans are capable of towing up to 1,000 pounds for smaller items and mini storage trailers. The Lincoln MKC and Lincoln MKX crossover SUVs can handle quite a bit more (up to 3,000 pounds), and since these two models are so similar, it’s no surprise that they’re nearly equally as good for towing.
Another step up from there is the Lincoln MKT. With a larger engine than the previously mentioned models, it can tow up to 4,500 pounds. Its 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine and six-speed automatic transmission make this vehicle drive like a dream, even when it’s towing more than two-thirds of its weight.
However, the most ideal model we have for towing is hands-down the Lincoln Navigator. Its towing capabilities can reach as high as 9,000 pounds, making it one of the top 10 SUVs overall for towing. Due to its standard 5.4-liter V8 engine, it gets 310 horsepower and 365 lb-ft torque for tons of towing power. This model also has the most spacious interior of the mentioned models and includes third-row seating, which is great for road trips with the whole family.
