Hi, Just traded in our awd territory on a new awd Kluger altitude.
Was wondering if anyone here tows with a Kluger. We towed a Jayco outback camper trailer for a few weeks last year in the ford territory & it was great , hoping the Kluger will be just as capable..

No drama either way wasn't going to buy a car to tow something a few days a year.just nice to know how it performs. If it ain't good enough to tow a jayco camper trailer I'll rent out a smaller camper to tow..

With the amount of grunt they have can not see a problem and they are surprising econimical eg mid 9s , although I got in one this week to refuel it and the display said 20, must have coped a flogging.

While they where fixing my Hilux (agreement of things to do before they received my cash) they lent me a late model Kluger for a weekend,loved the power and was quite impressed but the petrol consumption was awful...Would hav thought with towing that diesel would hav been the go..

Mate,
a Subaru Forester could tow that van (and I know of some that do) with ease, so the "havnt got a Kluger" should be fine.

In fact a member of this site has that combination; Forester & Outback van

A friend of mine tows a Jayco Expanda with her Kluger. No dramas at all. Heaps of grunt, but as mentioned earlier a bit heavy on petrol, particularly on windy days.

She uses a WDH and the attitude of the vehicles when hooked together is great.

I used it to move my old JAyco Eagle CT once and I hardly knew it was on the back.

We are onto our second Kluger, the latest is a 2008 Grande AWD. Heaps of grunt (200KW) but VERY sensitive to the weight of the right foot. Around town milage can vary between high 14'sL/100 to 17's in the same car depending on who is dioing the driving. Below 10 possible on the highway.
