Pretty accurate article. If you walk into a dealership and utter the word "tow", you are going to be directed to a pickup truck. They are by far the most profitable vehicle, for both the manufacturer and dealer, on the lot.
So, there just isn't a lot of interest on their part to actually base the tow ratings on any other type of vehicle on their actual capabilities. And, they don't generally offer tow packages or accessories for anything other than trucks. It's all about the Benjamin's...
I have a pickup. It tows well. At everything else, it is just okay. Unfortunately, I carry a lot of stuff for my summer job and it was the only option...
