Almost got stuck today towing my fairly small (16 foot) aluminum boat in my 2019 Outlander PHEV. The launch ramp not steep at all, but some gravel. Just did not have the torque to get going. Wheels weren't slipping, didn't matter if engine on or off. Had to have someone give me a helping push. Foot on the floor, going nowhere.
Any solution to this? Or does the PHEV just not have very much torque starting out. I would have thought it should have the ability to start the rated towing weight on a hill, and this little boat it way under that weight.
