It is no joke that many of the strongest, or more powerful hauling machines come from Detroit including Chevy, Cadillac, and Ford. Here is a list of full-size luxury vehicles, not trucks, that are capable of towing almost all the camping and vacation trailers commonly used.

Keep in mind that standard SUVs such as the Honda CR-V or the Subaru Forester average around 1,500 pounds of towing capacity.
