In Europe, the Sienna is rated to tow 6000 pounds and my Kia Sedona is rated at 6600. In North America, it seems they translate the European KG ratings without multiplying by 2.2! The US rating on the Sedona is 3500 lb.
The 2011 "best car" for towing a 3000 pound trailer, according to the Caravan & Camping Club, is the Ford Focus and the VW Passat rated best for a 4000 pounder. The ratings were mentioned in an article in last Saturday's Daily Telegraph Motoring section.
