Default Tow your 5000lb boat/trailer with a Honda (suv/truck):

Saw this on the Detroit Auto Show yesterday on TV. It looks interesting, but not my cup of tea. Full time AWD and 4-wheel independent suspension does sound interesting though.
It will be available this spring as a 2006 model.

Technical
• 255-hp, 3.5-Liter, 24-Valve SOHC VTEC® V-6 Engine
• 5-Speed Automatic Transmission
• Variable Torque Management® 4-Wheel Drive System (VTM-4®)
• Locking Rear Differential
• Heavy-Duty Automatic-Transmission and Power Steering Coolers
• Heavy-Duty Radiator with Dual 160-Watt Fans
• Fresh-Air Intake
• 4-Wheel Independent Suspension

Capabilities
• 5,000-lb. Towing Capacity
• 1,550-lb. Total Payload Capacity
• Half-Ton (1,100-lb) Bed Capacity

Depending on what they classify it as; anyone want to take bets on Motor Trend 2006 SUV or Truck of the Year honors?

I can't believe the tow ratings they put on these little trucks... Let's see what they do when they have to pull hills or stop quickly with that much weight!

The trailer tells the truck where to go and when it is going to stop(maybe stop) Been there once and only once. Real quick learner.
