What is the 2022 GMC Acadia Towing Capacity?

June 13th, 2022 by
2022 GMC Acadia AT4 Parked


The 2022 GMC Acadia Towing Capacity is up to 4,000 pounds maximum when properly equipped. That’s enough to tow ATVs, motorcycles, jet skis, and many other toys. At the high end, you might just be able to tow a very lightweight coupe or roadster, as the trailer for the load also takes up weight from that maximum. For a unibody crossover optimized mostly for efficiency rather than pulling power, this is quite impressive.

How Much Can a 2022 Acadia Tow?

The GMC Acadia tow package, with the available V6 engine, allows up to 4,000 pounds. The standard 2.0 Turbo engine can provide up to 3,500 pounds of towing capacity when properly equipped. All of this power is given control by the Acadia tow package’s various features: 

  • 7-pin wiring harness
  • GMC Acadia trailer hitch
