Definitely do. He may have tow rating confused with the 6000lb gvwr requirement for deductible vehicles.
Gvwr is a strange beast that is calculated by the weight of the vehicle and its carrying capacity (and I'm sure other variables.)
The 2012 had a gvwr of 6,500 lbs if I'm not mistaken.
Business Vehicles - Section 179 Deductions | Section179.Org
It would be strange if CA had a separate code, but I suppose its possible.
One way or another, I'm deducting my 14 as a farm vehicle.
Edit: it has nothing to do with the tow rating and more so vehicle weight plus maximum fuel, passengers and cargo that it can hold. It's still used for section 179 deductions. 25k plus 50% if purchased new. Remainder goes to a depreciation schedule.
