How Much Can the GMC Acadia Tow?

If you opt for the base-level GMC Acadia, you’ll have a towing capacity of 1,000 pounds. The average Glen Allen driver will likely find that this is more than enough for their needs, but if you happen to need a little more muscle, you’d do well to consider upgrading to the V6 engine, which would increase the GMC Acadia towing capacity to the maximum 4,000 pounds. For an always safe towing experience in Goochland, you might also think about opting for the GMC Acadia Tow Package, which brings the following features to your SUV:

  • GMC Acadia trailer hitch
  • Class III hitch
  • 7-pin wiring harness
  • Hitch Guidance with Hitchview
  • Heavy-duty cooling system

Keep in mind: If you do plan to utilize your GMC Acadia towing capabilities, it’s important to check out the trailering section of your GMC Acadia owner’s manual. Here, you’ll find all of the information you need on how accessories, cargo, passenger weight, and more can affect the GMC Acadia towing capacity.
