Maserati Levante Towing Capacity Guide

Maserati Levante Towing Capacity Guide

One major draw of SUVs is that they typically offer better towing capacity than smaller sedans. And for all of the emphasis that Maserati puts on the Levante’s performance capabilities, it can tow just as well as the more utilitarian SUVs on the market. But you might have noticed that there is no tow package option from the factory, let us explain.

Aftermarket Options

There is a robust aftermarket for Levante accessories, and this is especially true when it comes to towing accessories. Whichever tow hitch option you go with, you’ll need to make sure you have a rear skid plate installed. This can also be retrofitted if you don’t have one, but it is absolutely vital, as it is what the tow hitch is mounted to. Mirror extensions will also be required for the safe operation of the vehicle with some trailers.

Towing capacity should be listed in your owner’s manual, but we’ll save you some time and tell you that it’s 5,900 pounds for trailers equipped with their own brake systems, and 1,650 pounds for unbraked trailers. We should also warn you that the kick sensor for the power liftgate will have to be deactivated when the hitch is installed, due to its location.
