Our customers at Ourisman Chrysler Dodge Jeep® RAM are some of the most astute car shoppers in the entire state of Maryland. They know the proper ways of researching a new vehicle and can find a vehicle that perfectly suits their lifestyle. So when they shop at our dealership located in Bowie, MD, they oftentimes know what they want to the exact detail. But the one thing that they are most unaware about is towing. To help our new and existing customers, we made a list of things to know so anyone can learn how to tow like a pro.

The Basics

To become a towing expert, your must know a vehicle’s towing capacity because it helps avoid overloading your vehicle. The towing capacity can be found out by asking any of our knowledgeable sale staff, who can all speak to the capabilities of everything from new Dodge cars to pre-owned Jeep SUVs.

Keys to Safety

Once you’ve properly installed a trailer hitch and safely hooked up a trailer, try driving down low-traffic roads and streets to help you get a feel of the cargo you’re towing behind you. With enough practice, you should be able to develop ways of adjusting to different road conditions while towing a trailer.

Vehicles Perfect for Towing

The Chrysler Pacifica is one example of a vehicle perfect for towing a trailer. Capable of towing up to 3,500 pounds, the Chrysler Pacifica is one of the most powerful and stylish minivans in its category, and a high towing capacity is just one of many standard features that come with this minivan.

We hope this short list helped you get a better understanding of towing. As always, feel free to contact us at (844) 841-4695 if you have any other questions about becoming a towing pro.
