2021 Kia Sportage Overlooking City

SUVs are well-known for many things, including being capable people-haulers. But SUVs are also so much more than that. If you find yourself searching for a new SUV near Indiana or Johnstown that is capable of towing, then you should look no further than the 2021 Kia Sportage at Tri Star Kia!

Curious Latrobe SUV shoppers like you will love to know that the Kia Sportage towing capacity reaches a maximum of 2,000 pounds. If you need more towing capacity, consider the Kia Sorento! Meanwhile, learn all about the 2021 Kia Sportage towing specs and more with Tri Star Kia!

Can the Kia Sportage Tow My Boat?

Many Ebensburg area SUV shoppers with boats have asked us, “Can the Kia Sportage tow my boat?” If you’re looking for an SUV specifically to tow your boat and enjoy recreational activities on the Conemaugh river or elsewhere, then you’ll be glad to know that yes, so long as you’re towing below 2,000 pounds total, the Kia Sportage can most definitely tow your boat!

What are some boats that tip the scales at less than 2,000 pounds? From small bass boats to other small powerboats like a 15’ Boston Whaler, there are plenty of options to consider! You may even be able to tow a small pontoon boat, depending on its weight, and can almost certainly tow a couple of jet-skis.
