Toyota Highlander

I think it would be fine for light duty towing in the East, but you will probably find it lacking in steep mountain grades and at high altitude. What year and what engine? What is the payload?

The 2022 V6 develops peak torque at 4700 rpm, that is extraordinarily high. You would have to be OK with driving in low gears all the time, and it would get very wearing for the passengers.

If you already own the Highlander, then give it a try, but in your shoes I would definitely not go out and buy one for towing the small Ollie. A Sequoia (especially the new hybrid model) would be a dandy choice!
