When evaluating the truck vs. car/van/SUV, folks often overlook the towing specific features found in most 3/4 ton and 1 ton trucks including:

- exhaust brake (engine compression braking)
- trailer towing mirrors (extend out for increased vision)
- integrated brake controller
- tow/haul transmission programming (altered shift points & gear holding downhill)

any or all of these can significantly improve overall safety in addition to reducing travelling stress.
