Hello everyone, im new to this forum and forums in general so I’m giving this a shot. I traded my 4wd Ram 1500 for a fwd telluride. My question is if anyone has off road or towing experiences with this certain model the LX. I purchased mine with small dings and scratches in the rear (no big deal) may be getting a tow hitch installed for the inconvenience (was going to purchase one anyway). How would this do launching a boat, towing atv trailers on bumpy dirt roads and the occasional muddy areas. I’m not asking wether it can handle it or not I want to know how well will it handle it? Front wheelers are generally pretty outstanding for normal mild off road use but the telluride being so new I can’t find anyone’s experience with it.

I took mine to a muddy dirt bike track and went over a few jumps...didn’t get stuck even in foot deep mud. Even got some decent air on some of the jumps.

I have an FWD LX with the factory tow kit installed, and am towing a 2500lb boat. The ramp I use is fairly steep and slippery and compared to the Highlander I previously owned, I felt confident both backing down the ramp and pulling the boat out of the water. No issues whatsoever with wheel spin and plenty of pulling power.
