My owner's manual for my 2007 Suzuki XL7 has the max towing capacity at 3000 lbs. However, https://docs.google.com/viewer?url=http://www.trailerlife.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/Trailer-Life-Towing-Guide-2007.pdf states 3500 lbs. The Suzuki forums reference a 3500 lb. limit as well. Any idea why the difference? EDIT: Think I figured it out. US is more conservative on ratings, for whatever reason. 3500 lbs. seems to be the towing capacity in other countries.
