Just curious as to what you guys have towed with the XC60. Obviously it should have enough power, but can it handle the weight? I get conflicting opinions...
That gets back to the subjective nature of towing specs. EU vehicles tend to have higher towing capacity than their US counterparts. The only distinction is that they are rated for traveling at 50 mph and US models are rated for 65 mph.Yes, very true! Seems like the XC60 is a bit of a wimp in the towing department when looking at the specs...
If it matters, one of my colleagues towed a trailer loaded with an old Jaguar on it, with no issues at all; the car was a FWD (!) XC60 T5 Drive-E.The shop foreman at my dealer is confident it would be ok. Best to just get a truck and keep the strain off the XC!
