We towed ours with a 2013 Grand Caravan and it towed it quite well. Its tow capacity was 3800lbs so you should be fine.

Well, the specs seem to work but the Sorento may have a frontal area limitation, which any hybrid or TT will exceed.

Sorento towing

Thanks for the response. The owner's manual talks a lot about weight and formula for determining. No reference to height. I will check with dealer.

Camper sales people will tell you anything to make the sale proceed with caution
