When you want a powerful yet efficient SUV that can get you, your crew, and a small camper, boat, or trailer out of Jackson, take a look at the 2022 Kia Sportage towing capacity. When properly equipped the Kia Sportage towing capacity reaches up to 2,000 pounds. That’s just powerful enough to handle small towing jobs efficiently while remaining agile and easy to drive. Take a look at your engine options and available towing equipment, then shop the new Kia Sportage inventory to find the right one for you. 

Can a Kia Sportage Tow a Boat?

The Kia Sportage towing capacity can handle a small fishing boat on Brandon streets. Or it can tow a small trailer with watercraft like a Jet Ski, canoes, or kayaks. Larger boats are a great fit for larger Kia SUVs like the 2022 Sorento. But if you don’t want a lot of towing power and would like to keep your drives efficient, take a look at the Kia Sportage engine specs and select the one that’ll get the job done for you:
