Towing Capacity Guide

Subaru SUVs are known for taking their owners through uncharted territory and less traveled trails. Over the years, they’ve made it easier for owners to tow more on their adventures, increasing their max towing capacities in every sport utility vehicle on their line-up. Towing can take your travels to the next level, allowing you to tow trailers, campers, fishing boats, and more. If you want a Subaru to tow your equipment, browse our selection of the most capable models available. For more information on a specific Subaru, contact our team at Bob Moore Subaru today.
