I thought I saw somewhere it was the same.

I think the limit isn’t the car itself, but the funky hitch (tow bar). They even have absurdly low specs for bike rack hitches etc.

Be nice if the Model S offered a hitch. You know it’s perfectly just as capable. That’s the main reason I got the X over an S.

As with most towing setups you run out of cargo capacity before trailer weight. Adding 500lbs hitch weight leaves only a few hundred pounds of passenger and cargo capacity. Upping the trailer weight rating wouldn't do much good for most unless you'll be the only one in the car.
