Unfortunately the only LX with a halfway-decent towing capacity is the Magnum.

My guess, and this is just a guess, mind you, is that the the long roof attached to the D-pillar, which itself is attached to the unibody, adds structural rigidity to the car and allows it to tow more and to support more tongue weight without deforming the body of the vehicle. A 300, Charger, or Challenger would lack the high structural support. And while the modern Challenger is arguably a two-door-post sedan rather than a coupe (based on the roofline), but its shorter wheelbase could also have an effect on the ability to handle a trailer of any significant size.

What is it that you're trying to tow, anyway?

I think there should be a towing/travel Forum at Allpar.

Can't bring myself to dump my Challenger for a tow only vehicle yet. Need to know a lot more and discuss it. At least I know the Challenger can't do more than a 1000lbs while a 91 New Yorker is rated for 2000lbs. I see that the 1967 Chrysler says not to exceed 5000 Lbs. Son has a 68, that fits my bill for stylin.

Since RV pics.com closed it may invite more traffic.
It appears that your wish has been granted...
