Subaru Forester Towing Capacity

Subaru Forester Towing Capacity Overview

The Subaru Forester has a towing capacity from 1500 lbs and 2400 lbs depending on the trim and model year.

All towing capacities are braked capacities. This means that the trailer being towed has a braking system installed to assist the vehicle braking system. The towing capacities for trailers without brakes will be much less. Confirm all towing capacities with the owner's manual.

Note: A fishing boat and trailer usually weighs between 900 lbs. to 6000 lbs., a tent trailer typically weighs between 1,000 lbs. to 1,500 lbs. and a fifth wheel travel trailer averages between 12,000 lbs. to 15,000 lbs.
