      Hello

      We have a 2016 XC70 T5 AWD that has a 3,300 towing capacity and it's 250 hp/266lb torque. We're interested in the 560 ultra which is 1500lb I believe, you're the only Volvo owner I have seen yet and wondering what you're thoughts are on using the XC70 for a tow vehicle?

      Any thoughts or experience you could share is greatly appreciated!

      Best,
      Shannon W

        Hi. We've had no towing issues with our XC90, and we have the 5 cylinder turbo. We've been assured that a 4-cyl would be fine as a tow vehicle (though perhaps not a Prius). I don't recall what the 2004 XC90 2.5T towing capacity is, but I don't think it's higher than 3,500 lbs. We have the smaller CampInn, but we have it loaded pretty heavy, I think, with kitchen stuff, plus a full water tank, usually.
