Our Team Is Here to Offer Basic Trailering Information at Bob Maxey Lincoln


While our Lincoln vehicles here at Bob Maxey Lincoln, Inc. serving the greater Detroit area offer standout luxury and quality, drivers can also be assured that they are capable of towing, as well. With many of our vehicles, including those with all-wheel drive, and our SUV lineup such as the Lincoln MKC, you have towing capabilities, and we want you to know how to set up your Lincoln SUV for towing.

All the right information you'll need can be found in your owner's manual, but there are lots of things to consider. The first is to make sure your vehicle can tow, and what's its capacity. A vehicle like the Lincoln MKC is capable of towing up to 2,000 pounds when you properly equip it. That means getting a trailer hitch for the vehicle. Our parts team is able to help you with that as you will want the factory-authorized trailer hitch that keeps your vehicle integrity at its highest, and gives you confidence that your towing will work.

You should also be aware of the different trailer types you're looking to use, and ensure that it matches up with the vehicle you have. If you go over the towing capacity, you won't be able to properly tow your load, and that can lead to plenty of trouble. Other things you'll need include a trailer wiring harness to connect your vehicle to the trailer to tow it, trailer lamps to make sure the lights on the trailer you are towing work for your and other people's safety, safety chains, and either trailer brakes, electronically controlled brakes, or surge brakes, depending on the setup.

You should also be sure to distribute the weight evenly, and be cautions when driving with something attached to your Lincoln MKC or other SUV or AWD vehicle. Of course, if you have any questions, our team is here to answer them, so feel free to contact us in our showroom serving Saint Clair Shores, Roseville, Warren, Grosse Pointe and Detroit today!
