This compact SUV also offers exceptional handling, performance, and fuel economy, so it’s a great choice whether you’re in traffic or rolling up to the trailhead. Join Midway Auto Dealerships for a closer look at the GMC Terrain towing capacity specs and features, below.


How Much Can the GMC Terrain Tow?

How much can the GMC terrain tow when properly equipped? The base GMC Terrain comes standard with a robust 1.5L gas turbocharged engine that delivers up to 170 hp and 203 lb-ft of torque. With this engine under the hood, the GMC Terrain towing capacity reaches 1,500 pounds—more than enough to haul your popup tent trailer or jet ski out of Hastings for the weekend. To handle heavy loads on any surface, we recommend equipping your Terrain with all-wheel drive and the Traction Select System.

GMC Terrain Traction Select System

Like other GMC SUVs, the Terrain is available with the Traction Select System to monitor traction and help keep you in control. To access these active monitoring and assistive technologies, you’ll need to select the 4-wheel drive Terrain configuration. Here’s what you can expect from each Traction Select System mode:

  • FWD: In front-wheel drive mode, power is sent only to the front wheels to lessen drag and reduce fuel consumption on the Holdrege highways.
  • AWD: When you shift to all-wheel drive mode, the system sends power to both axles, enhancing traction on slick roads or unsteady surfaces.
  • Off-Road: Off-road mode makes adjustments to the AWD settings to optimize performance for trail driving. As a result, you’ll get better control on surfaces like dirt, gravel, and sand.
  • Available Tow/Haul Mode: Add this available mode for better towing. Trailer Sway Control monitors your trailer and automatically works to mitigate trailer sway. Plus, it automatically triggers AWD mode when boat ramps or other uneven surfaces require more traction.
