Launching A Small Boat On Tow With Rx400h

Recommended Posts

Hi, just joined today, excellent forum found it very useful :D

I'm 95% sure Im going to order my RX400h tomorrow and have read with interest many of the

mainly very positive comments on the RX400h which have helped greatly in my final decision.

One final aspect that I am trying to get reassurance on , is whether the RX400h will meet the needs

of launching a small boat (1500 kg) area from a slip way. More over the question is will

it be capable of retrieving the boat. Im concerned that not a lot of torque goes to the back wheels

of the car + it will be on a fairly steep gradient (slipway) ... So has anyone used their RX400h

to do this. Im hoping this won't be a problem but given the predominant front wheel drive

ratio, Im like to clarify. The dealer's playing it safe neither saying yes or no to the question.

Appreciate any views today as I will prob have to make a call on going with the car tomorrow.
