I apologize for not reporting back sooner but we did have a tow hitch and wiring installed (not at the dealership) and we did tow a 6*12' UHaul trailer about 200o miles from Michigan to Oregon (over the Rocky Mtns). I do not know how much the trailer weighed but empty it was supposedly 2000#. No problems at all. Very powerful. It was easier to drive than our Chevy Silverado pickup but it was loaded pretty heavy in the truck bed and the trailer was more heavily loaded also. Anyway our Kia with V6 and AWD did great. Thanks for your encouragement to go for it!
