Chevy, Buick, GMC Towing Guide

From pulling a popup camper behind a compact SUV to hitching a gooseneck horse trailer to a heavy-duty truck, Chevy, Buick, and GMC models give drivers the capability to tow just about anything. Whether you are heading out on vacation with your favorite toys, getting ready for a busy day at work, or packing up to move cross country, having a trailer is a great way to maximize your vehicle’s potential. However, it is always important to stay safe and be aware of your vehicle’s limits when towing. To help our customers out, here is a full list of the maximum towing capacities of every model you will find here at Coyle Chevrolet Buick GMC.

Chevy

If there is one brand known for building rugged work vehicles you can count on to tow anything, that brand is Chevy. From the powerful Silverado and Colorado pickup trucks to mighty SUVs like the Tahoe and Suburban, Chevy offers plenty of options for serious towing. If you don’t need to trailer loads weighing thousands of pounds, Chevy’s smaller SUV options might surprise you with their available towing capacities. From the Trailblazer to the Traverse, Chevy offers tow packages that can easily handle light trailers, giving drivers even more options for hitting the road with everything that you need to move.

GMC

You can’t have a professional-grade vehicle without professional-grade towing, and GMC offers solid tow ratings on all of its models. From the compact Terrain to the mighty Sierra 3500 HD, you can count on a GMC to trailer anything that you might have in mind. GMC is particularly unique for combining high tow ratings and premium features in its luxurious Denali models. Just because you have a fifth-wheel trailer that you need to haul doesn’t mean you have to settle when it comes to style and comfort. When you are ready to upgrade to a serious tow rig that has it all, a GMC is the way to go.

Buick

While a luxury SUV may not be your first thought when it comes to a tow vehicle, Buick’s latest models might just surprise you when it comes to their capability. With factory tow hitch options and driver-selectable transmission tow/haul modes in select models, a Buick can be a great option for pulling a small camper or a trailer loaded with bikes, jet skis, or other vacation toys. While the max towing capacities may be lower than with a full-size pickup truck, a Buick SUV lets you and your family relax in a premium vehicle as you cruise down the road with a trailer in tow.
