The 2020 Mazda CX-9 is an excellent midsize, three-row SUV. It is spacious, luxurious, and practical. Exactly how practical is it, though? Can it handle a trailer? How about a camper?

The 2020 Mazda CX-9 is no slouch. It has the 2.5-liter turbocharged SKYACTIV-G four-cylinder engine which puts out 250 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. Those numbers, paired with the AWD drivetrain, allow the 2020 CX-9 to pull a respectable 3,500 lbs. That’s enough to pull a moving trailer, a boat, or a small camper.
