I wouldn't pull any trailer (even a Brenderup) with an Explorer!! No way, no
how.... Not big enough engine, not heavy duty enough components. A Ranger?
Do you realize how puny the engines are in a Ranger?

You're right, the Expedition and Excursion are suburban abominations.... oh,
excuse me, wrong tangent.... they are SUV's on the truck chassis and
generally have the same tow packages, engines and drive train options as the
truck series.


I just don't understand why anyone would buy an SUV for hauling and towing
when trucks now come with extended cabs and rear seats.
