Nissan recently commissioned a new study, which indicated that 71 percent of Americans would rather travel in a car than sit in an airplane seat. Even those aged 65 and older are 85 percent were more likely to go on a trip with a car this summer.
Respondents said that those road trips were outdoor-focused, featuring activities like camping or boating — the type of adventures that require a Nissan vehicle with towing capacity.
“Towing can be intimidating for first-timers and even those with experience,” said Jared Haslam, vice-president, Product Planning, Nissan North America. But Nissan has several vehicles to choose from that provide a range of towing options when properly equipped.
The Nissan Armada can tow a maximum 8,500 pounds, while the TITAN XD can tow up to 11,000 pounds. These are great choices if you need to tow a camper. Even the 2020 Nissan Rogue and Murano have decent strength for towing, delivering 1,100-pound and 1,500-pound towing ratings, respectively. These models make it easy to transport jet skis or ATVs for a weekend getaway.
