What are the Mechanical Advantages of Crossover SUVs?

Crossover SUVs have tremendous versatility under the hood. Such family vehicles are available with efficient four-cylinder engines or powerful V8 engines. Autoline VA offers compact, mid-size and full-size models that are ready to roll in Chantilly.

A typical gas engine with four cylinders generates approximately 200 horsepower in a crossover SUV. You can tow at least 1,500 pounds with an entry-level powertrain that has natural aspiration in the induction system. A V8 gas engine usually delivers well above 300 hp. This powertrain should be strong enough to tow more than 5,000 pounds. Hitch connections for trailers are typically available at dealerships.

Luxurious crossover SUVs have advanced transmission systems that are optimized for off-road performance and towing. A custom mode for hauling and towing controls the mechanics in the gearbox. Some models have continuously variable transmission systems with an array of possible gear ratios. It's rare to find a manual transmission system in a high-end crossover SUV.
