Hi, my wife and I are looking in to buy a Subaru Ascent, but we are not convinced yet if this car can tow the trailer we want to purchase with it. We are looking to buy a "Little Guy Max", it has a dry weight of 3,140 lbs.; a tongue weight of 330 lbs.; overall length 21' and a GVWR of 3,800 lbs. The dealer is telling us it is no problem towing this trailer, my gut has questions. The Ascent has a max towing capacity of 5,000 lbs. and a tongue weight of 500 lbs. I'm not looking for gas mileage, I'm looking to see if the car can handle the trailer with no or little difficulties. I hope somebody has some good input on this threat because I love Subaru, we have two Outbacks 2016 and 2018, I know they are not up to this task. Thank you in advance for any information.
