4x4 to tow 2100kg

perhaps looking to change cars and not sure what best options are, maybe a big automatic 4x4 estate car this time.

Hi Paul my horse for many years was a Sorento and I never had a problem. Changed two years ago to. BMW X5 3.0 d automatic and I have been pleasantly surprised it never misses a beat with plenty of torque

will check out the allroads, i thought they were 1900kg towing though so i'll do more digging.

i should add, i'm not paying 500 quid road tax for ANYTHING unless it has ferrari or lambo written on it

this thing will sit on my driveway 99% of its life.

never had to put the car in the sea, although yesterday was close!

the ramps at the forth are very shallow, LT's boat came off with the car in the water, i needed probably 20ft of rope......then the fun began but my lips are sealed, LT can take the spot light if he wants . if anyone was in that marina yesterday they will have thought we just got our boats for christmas. was truly all the gear and no idea.

it was quite laughable how high my boat was sitting while backed in fully with tyres just at the wet stuff.
