It might have enough power to get it down the road, but that's about it.
I know a guy who tows a 23' boat with a Vue, but he mostly, only goes 1/4 mile. Still nuts IMHO.

We scream safety, safety, safety when winching/pulling with anything but a unworn, non-tattered strap, but won't hesitate to pull 10k down the road with an F150 "because it can". A Mis-Guided Missile. An accident waiting for a place to happen.

Another factor is if you are pushing those load limits all the time, how long will your 1/2t vehicle last. Not an issue if you buy a new one every three years, I can't afford that.
