Which GMC Truck Can Tow the Most?

Different trucks will meet different towing needs, and you have a wide range of capacities to pick from. In the GMC Canyon, you’ll have 7,700 lb of available towing capacity, 13,300 lb in the GMC Sierra 1500, and up to 36,000 lb in the GMC Sierra HD. To learn more about how much a specific truck can tow, consult the vehicle’s owner’s manual or talk to our expert team.

What’s the Difference Between Fifth Wheel and Gooseneck Hitches?

You’ve likely heard about “fifth wheel” and “gooseneck” hitches. While they both offer a little extra boost in your towing capacities, they aren’t exactly the same.

Gooseneck hitches are typically used for flatbed and livestock trailers, and fifth wheel hitches are used for RVs and campers. Gooseneck hitches are more commercial and heavier. Fifth wheel hitches tend to be more recreational.

Can Electric Pickup Trucks Tow?

Yes! The GMC Hummer EV Pickup has up to a GMC-estimated 381 miles of all-electric range and can tow up to 12,000 lb when properly equipped.
