TRAILERING AND TOWING CHARTS

MAXIMUM TRAILER WEIGHT RATING (LBS)

The chart below gives you an idea of the maximum amount of weight you can confidently and safely trailer with different GMC model lines when your vehicle is properly equipped. When determining the total weight of trailer and cargo, include the weight of any additional passengers and optional equipment (driver weight and base equipment are already included).

SELECTED HORSEPOWER AND TORQUE RATINGS

For trailering, GMC recommends an automatic transmission for convenience and improved performance. Sierra Heavy Duty trucks equipped with the available Duramax Diesel engine include the Allison 6-speed automatic with Tow/Haul mode, which raises upshift points to use more of the engine’s power for strong acceleration and raises downshift points to help slow your truck using engine braking. On select Sierra Light Duty, Yukon and Canyon models, a Hydra-Matic 8-speed automatic transmission provides smooth and precise shifting.

FLAT (DINGHY) TOWING CAPABILITY

This chart indicates which GMC vehicles are able to be towed behind another vehicle, such as a motor home, with all four wheels on the ground.

TRAILER WEIGHT RATINGS

These charts specify the maximum trailer weight for your vehicle, assuming use of a weight-distributing hitch.
The maximum rating for a weight-carrying hitch is listed at left. Do not exceed the maximum trailer weight rating. Some models, when loaded with the driver, passenger and maximum tongue load, may exceed the maximum Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) or rear-axle weight rating for that vehicle, which is not permissible. For more information, ask your GMC sales professional or call 1-800-GMC-8782.
