2020 GMC Sierra HD Towing Something HugeAs we’re sure you’re already aware, GMC vehicles belong to three major categories: trucks, SUVs and crossovers. Every member of the GMC lineup also has its own Denali trim level, which represents the very top-of-the-line. These vehicles are more luxurious and packed full of premium content than their counterparts. The table above highlights every model on the lineup – if you don’t see a model’s corresponding Denali trim listed, that means its max towing capacity is the same.

If you’re in the market for a crossover, you can look at the Terrain and Acadia models. These two are more meant for people moving and comfort than hauling behind, as you can see by their lower max capacities. The Yukon and Yukon XL are both traditional SUVs, making a big step up in the towing capacity game. The rest of the vehicles are trucks, increasing in size proportionately to their towing capacities – though, as you may have noticed, the Denali trim levels are slightly less capable than their counterparts.
