How Much Can The GMC Yukon Tow?
For the 2021 model year, thanks to its powerful 5.3-liter V-8 motor, towing capability for the GMC Yukon standard and XL impressively increases by more than 20%. With this engine in place, it effectively makes it more powerful than the 6.2-liter V-8, bringing the max towing capacity for standard models to a total of 7,900 pounds -- a 1,400-pound increase compared to the previous edition. As for the rear-wheel-drive GMC Yukon XL, it benefits from a 1,500-pound boost in towing capacity, bringing its max capability to a respective total of 7,800 pounds.
If you’re looking to up the ante even further in terms of towing, however, an available ProGrade Trailering System™ is made available for the 2021 GMC Yukon, which will provide this SUV with a Hitch Guidance System with Hitch View, an Integrated Trailer Brake Controller, a Trailer Side Blind Zone Alert, enhanced cooling radiator, and most importantly, more capability. When this setup is equipped on the 5.3-liter V-8 motor with a rear-wheel drivetrain, max towing figures will hover around an eye-popping 8,400 pounds.
