Thumbs up Overland V6 Towing

Very impressed with the towing ability of the V6. I did not feel that the V6 had to work hard and the transmission shifted as required and met my expectations.

Played with the snow mode (under 40kph) and didn't notice any difference from the auto setting. Traction was fantastic with the 20" stock tires but I will buy snowtires for next winter.

Found the fuel economy (mileage) very good in comparison to the Liberty we had. We made a 800 km round trip from London, ON to Rosseau, ON and averaged 14.9 litres per 100 km pulling a trailer, snowmobile, supplies for five days and four passengers.

Re: Overland V6 Towing

Nice to hear... 14.9L/100Km is good IMO pulling a trailer and sled.
The only thing you need to do is get rid of the yamaha and get into an E-TEC!!!
