Towing capacity of Rangers?
I'm curious about towing with these. I own the 1962 Mercury Wagon shown below and it's in Colorado springs and I need to move it to El Paso. When I was talking about renting a truck, several people thought the 1992 Ranger (which has the 3.0 V6 with a five speed) would tow it OK.
Seems like a big load for the truck to me but then again Europeans tow huge crap all over the place with little tiny cars. I figure this car weighs between 5,000 - 6,000 lbs.
The trip is about 600 miles and there is at least two very steep mountains to cross.
What do you think, Doable or "go get a bigger truck"?
