I towed a 20ft./3700 lb. camper trailer some short distances over the summer, so you'll be fine. Hahaha.
Officially the CX-5 is good for 2200 lbs. in Canada/USA. It's in your user manual.
1000 lbs without brakes
2000 lbs with trailer brakes
according to the US manual for the 2017/2018 CX-5
Oh man, sorry that happened. I'd hate waiting to drive that nice looking CE!View attachment 295888
Since photo was taken four months ago, got rear ended on freeway (by uninsured young kid) and with only 650 miles, car has been in shop for 2-1/2 months, mostly waiting on Mazda for parts, which apparently are back ordered due to C19 supplier-related problems. Oh well, still have my old SUV to drive and there were no injuries. I’ll get it back soon and it will be new car time again.
