gv towing

Does any one here know why the 2000 GV has only 1500 lbs towing cap and the 2003 has 3000 lbs towing cap ? Is it the tranny or the 2.7 vs. the 2.5 ? (probably both).
I'm seriously considering trading my 2000 for a 2003 for that reason only.

Re: gv towing

I believe the 2003 Grand Vitara has the same 1,500-pound towing capacity as the earlier models, and this is due to its short wheelbase. It's the XL-7 that has the 3,000-pound towing capacity, due to its longer wheelbase.

According to Suzuki, the Grand Vitara is rated to tow 1500lbs, whereas the XL-7 is rated to tow 3000lbs. I hope this helps!
