Hi guys new here hoping for someone to chime in with some insight. So I’ve had a 2018 CX-9 Touring the last 3 years and I’m seriously considering leasing or purchasing a new 2021 AWD CX-9 GT. I absolutely love everything about the vehicle. Looks, reliability, safety, it truly has been a great car. The dilemma I’m in is my wife and I are seriously considering getting a small 19ft boat in the near future. I know the tow rating is listed at 3500 pounds and the boat I’m looking at is around 3100 pounds dry weight. I found some info on the forum that the CX-9 tow rating is somewhat skewed in the US since the exact same vehicle has a higher listed tow rating (I believe 4400 pounds) in Europe and Australia. Also the trailer for the boat does include trailer brakes. All that being said I’ve been looking at the new Nissan Pathfinder which has a 6000 pound tow rating. I will say it’s a nice car but I still prefer the CX-9 for it’s looks and handling on the road. It’s just more refined. I live in South Florida and will be towing the boat primarily just 10 miles. Am I pushing my luck with the CX-9 or should I just switch to the Pathfinder? Anyone out there in a similar situation and towing a 3100 pound boat? Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
