Can You Tow With a Pontiac Vibe?

by Justan Brandt

The Pontiac Vibe was introduced for the 2003 model year and was the only Pontiac available for the 2010 model year. A platform-mate to the Toyota Matrix, the Vibe will be discontinued after 2010 since General Motors has eliminated the Pontiac brand.


The Pontiac Vibe is a sports wagon. It provides seating for five and has a utilitarian hatchback shape.


Although the Vibe is a station wagon, it does not provide as much towing capacity as some crossover vehicles, like SUVs.


When equipped with a Class 1 towing hitch, the Pontiac Vibe is rated to tow up to 1,500 pounds, according to AOL Autos.


If you carry additional cargo and passengers inside the Pontiac Vibe, the towing capacity decreases.

Time Frame

The Vibe was redesigned in 2009. But all model years, including the 2010 Vibe, are rated for the same towing capacity.
