towing jeep--need more hp or torque?

I'm buying a vehicle that I can tow my jeep to the trails with and pull my ski boat (20' @2800 lbs loaded).

One is the ford explorer--V8 --- 239 hp, 280 torque.
Or the nissan pathfinder--V6 but 260hp!!!! only 235 torque.

Both show 5000lb trailering capacity.

So which would you go for -- more hp or more torque??????
Or would you even be able to tell a difference?

Both are 4x4.
