How Much Can the GMC Yukon Tow?

Whether you’re taking on the daily Acworth commute or hitting the road with the family, you’re supported by powerful V8 performance. Each model, except the high-tier Denali trim, is equipped with a standard 5.3L V8 EcoTec3 engine that generates 355 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque with a standard GMC Yukon towing capacity of up to 7,900 pounds. Those standard capabilities are strengthened by a standard trailering hitch that features a seven-wire harness with independent fused trailering circuits and a two-inch trailering receiver.

To reach how much the GMC Yukon can tow at its top capacity, you’ll need the available Heavy-Duty Trailering package, as well. The package includes:

  • Integrated Trailer Brake Controller
  • 3.42 Axle Ratio
  • Two-Speed Active Transfer Case on 4WD Models Only
  • Premium Smooth Ride Suspension with Rear Air Leveler
  • Yukon Maximum Payload: 1,910 pounds

As you can see, nothing is held back with the GMC Yukon performance and towing capabilities. That also means that you can have peace of mind during heavy-duty trips around Canton with intuitive towing features such as:

  • Trailer Brake Control: Easy-to-access controls on the steering wheel allow you to configure the trailer’s braking system.
  • Hill Start Assist: The Hill Start Assist system holds the brakes for you, giving you enough time to switch from the brake to the accelerator without rolling back.
  • Hill Descent Control: At the push of a button, you can use anti-lock braking to control your descent while heading down steep declines.
