Towing capacity is detailed on a sticker inside the rear door of my wagon. 3500kg is only O.K. for the 4.2TD according to mine but be aware that State laws can often dictate your maximum capacity. (ie in NSW i think you can only tow up to 2/3 of the GVM of the towing vehicle as long as you have trailer brakes) also the trailer must have a compliance plate to show its maximum load capacity. 2 tonnes should be fine though, but don't put too much vertical load on the towball.
Cheers
