Tow Vehicle
We towed the Lance 1475s with a 2021 Subaru Ascent Limited. The fully loaded Lance 1475s weighs in at 3,700 pounds — well below the Ascent’s 5,000-pound towing capacity. Subaru’s Ascent has a 2.4-liter twin-scroll turbocharged 4-cylinder boxer engine that produces 260 horsepower and 277 lb-ft of torque. The engine gets teamed with a high-torque Lineartronic continuously variable transmission. Given all the low-end torque, the Ascent has no problems accelerating and maintaining speed with the trailer in tow. As expected, fuel economy takes a hit — the Ascent averaged about 13 mpg while towing the Lance.
