Considering the new 2021 GMC Acadia? This capable and spacious family-friendly SUV comes in a wide range of trim levels to suit most any Cedar Park driver, yourself included. But how much can the GMC Acadia tow? Depending on the trim, when it’s properly equipped, the GMC Acadia’s towing capacity reaches a 4,000-pound apex. When you pair that with the many standard and available GMC Acadia features, engine options, and more, you’ll begin to see why so many Austin drivers are choosing the Acadia vs. the Toyota Highlander and Ford Explorer.

How Much Can the New GMC Acadia Tow?

The GMC Acadia towing capacity for entry-level trim models with the base engine is 1,000 pounds. While that’s plenty for the average Pflugerville driver that only does occasional light towing, if you want more towing capacity, you can choose the upgraded V6 engine, which increases the GMC Acadia towing capacity to the maximum of 4,000 pounds!

The GMC Acadia towing capacity isn’t the only impressive thing about this SUV, though. Other towing features you’ll benefit from include:

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