I used to tow my 700 pound quad with a 98 S-10 pickup with a 4.3 liter 190 hp engine. This Saturday I hunted with my son and towed the quad for the first time with the Terrain. The quad and trailer probably weigh 1000 pounds and the car pulled it great. Had plenty of power while limiting the trans to 5th. Mileage dropped from 24 to 17 but that is expected. In the truck it would drop from 19 to 15. The car with the extra 70 hp was a pleasure to drive and it was hard to tell the trailer was back there.
