Nissan towing weights

These towing weights are sourced from the New Vehicle Distributor’s spec sheets. They’re based on vehicles sold new in NZ - spec levels and recommendations may vary with used imports. Some vehicles also require a transmission oil cooler be added for towing. It’s best to seek advice from your nearest dealer if required.
