2020 GMC Acadia red

For Bismarck drivers shopping for a resourceful three-row SUV that’s spacious and powerful, the 2020 GMC Acadia includes a nine-speed transmission and a turbo-charged four cylinder engine option. Whether you’re taking the family for a trip with a camper in tow, you’re going to need to know how much the Acadia can tow. Surpassing other SUVs in its class, the GMC Acadia towing capacity reaches a maximum of 4,000 pounds. Coupled with substantial powertrain options, the 2020 GMC Acadia is built for anything, especially hauling trailers to the jobsite in Bottineau

How Much Can the GMC Acadia Tow?

Maxing out at 1,000 pounds, the base level Acadia is meant for New Town city drivers who spend most of their time in their commute and wouldn’t utilize a higher towing capacity. However, the GMC Acadia towing capacity on its base level is still more than enough for the occasional lightweight towing job. Although, if you’re in need for a powertrain that’s durable and can withstand daily tough jobs, you’ll want to upgrade to the available V6 engine. Stepping up to this trim level will deliver you the maximum GMC Acadia towing capacity at 4,000 pounds.

To ensure safe towing whether it’s to the jobsite or a weekend away, the GMC Acadia promises a safe towing experience with available GMC Acadia Tow Package. The feature include:

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

When utilizing the GMC Acadia towing capacity, consult the trailering section of your owner’s manual first for important information regarding components that can affect the GMC Acadia towing capabilities.
