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.

First off, the Expedition is not a vehicle to undermine. With enough power to pull 9,200 pounds, this 5.4L V8 310-horsepower machine can come equipped with the Heavy-Duty Trailer Tow Package that includes standard trailer sway and roll stability to help keep the vehicle and trailer under control. The Expedition starts at $41,635. 

2. Infiniti QX80

Even though the Escalade ranks last on this list, it is also the most expensive because of its luxury. The 6.2L V8 403-horsepower engine goes from 0-60 in 6.8 seconds. This machine can pull up to 8,000 pounds and starts at $67,970.
