I have identified three mid sized SUVs that are supported by their manufacturers for using a WD hitch. They are Toyota Land Cruiser/Lexus LX, Lexus GX 460 and the Jeep Grand Cherokee. The 2014 Jeep GC will be available with a 3.0 liter v-6 diesel engine with a 7400 lb. tow rating. They all have sufficient towing and tongue weight capacity to tow my 23' Safari. The Jeep 4X4 is a little light in cargo carrying capacity.
