Toad suggestion please

Well I sold a tractor today and am now looking to spend my money! I have a 2010 freelancer that I believe has a 5000# towing capacity. My current vehicles won't work so I'm looking for a dedicated toad.

I've always liked a Jeep Wrangler but what you get for the money is outrageous. I've also considered a Honda CRV.

Any experience, pros, cons or other suggestions appreciated.

I tow a Jeep Liberty 4x4 and it cost way less than Wrangler and is easy to tow. Weighs about 3800 lb.

How about a nice 1967 Camaro 4 speed or maybe a nice 4 speed 1965 Chevelle. Don't laugh we are considering jump to class A and that one of perks for switching.

We like our Honda Fit. Nice and light and tows like a dream.
They switched to a CVT transmission in 2015 so you can no longer flat tow a automatic.

Are the ford fiestas still 4 flat towable, even as an automatic? Nice, cheap little car for sightseeing.
