If you need basic towing, the 1,000 pounds towing capacity of the entry-level GMC Acadia with a base-level engine is probably sufficient.
However, if you happen to need a little more muscle for those day trips to visit family at the Eielson Air Force Base, you may want to upgrade to the V6 engine, which increases the GMC Acadia towing capacity to a maximum 4,000 pounds. For an always safe towing experience on Fort Wainwright roadways, you might also want the available GMC Acadia Tow Package, which provides the following features:
- Hitch Guidance with Hitchview
- Heavy-duty cooling system
- GMC Acadia trailer hitch
- Class III hitch
- 7-pin wiring harness
Always remember that if you do plan to take advantage of Acadia towing, it’s important to check out the trailering section of your owner’s manual. You’ll find all of the information you need on how accessories, cargo, passenger weight, road conditions, and more can affect the GMC Acadia towing capabilities. Have questions? No problem. Contact Chevrolet Buick GMC of Fairbanks today. We’re always happy to help!
