How Much Can the GMC Sierra Tow?

With a Double Cab, a 6.2L V8 engine, and the Max Trailering Package, the Sierra 1500 can easily tow as much as 12,200 pounds. This tough pickup is available in a number of styles with varying features and bed/cab sizes that will affect your towing capabilities. Some of these choices include:

  • Drivetrain: 4WD or 2WD
  • Engine Options: 2.7L turbo engine, up to a 6.2L ECOTEC3 V8 engine
  • Truck Bed Length: Short Box or Standard Box
  • Cab Style: Crew Cab or Double Cab
  • Trim levels and accessories options

Opting for the Crew Cab will allow you to tow between 6,500 to 12,100 pounds. Or, if you go with the Double Cab, which features a smaller interior, your towing capacity reaches 6,600 to 12,200 pounds.

Available GMC Sierra Towing Features

  • Max Trailering Package: Tow more weight with the help of a 9.76-inch rear axle and 3.42 axle ratio, revised shock tuning, a 220-amp alternator, heavier-duty rear springs, and an enhanced cooling radiator.
  • Trailering Camera Package: Changing lanes and reversing with a trailer in tow is simple thanks two side mirror cameras and a trailer-mounted camera.
