The V6 without the Tow Prep Package has a 2000 pound towing capacity. If your boat is 2000 pounds, it is too close for comfort, I would not do it. It will not tow your boat just fine, dont believe your dealer, all he is trying to do is to close out the deal the easy way. It is alway better to be safe than sorry, especially if you plan to tow all the time. The Tow Prep Package Includes larger radiator, fan coupling, transmission oil cooler and 150A alternator. A very useful package for a $150 if you plan to do alot of towing. With the optional Tow Prep Package, the towing capacity goes up to 3500 pounds. Which should be nice and safe towing a 2000 pound boat.
