While there's a surprisingly large swath of the CUV market that can only tow about 2,000 pounds, there are others that put up a better fight. The next magic number is 3,500 pounds, and there's plenty of choice at that towing capacity. Lots of luxury choices occupy this space, like the Cadillac SRX and the V8-powered Infiniti FX50, both of which can shoulder 3,500 pounds. So too can the Nissan Murano. GMC's Terrain and Kia’s 2011 Sorento can handle the same load, as long as you opt for the V6 version. Sporty options are even accessible here: Mazda's CX-9 has been cited as actually fun to drive, even while having three rows of seats, and its 3.7-liter V6 makes 3,500 pounds possible.
