One of the primary reasons why Kent and Tacoma drivers choose GMC trucks is because of their impressive towing power. From the best-in-class midsize GMC Canyon to the return of the Hummer with a torque-pumping electric engine, the GMC truck lineup offers the towing capacity and payload numbers that make it easier than ever to tackle any job, whether it’s construction or a weekend outdoor adventure. Not only do we have the GMC truck towing and payload numbers, but we can help you get the amount of towing power you want. Take a look, then browse our used GMC inventory to find the right truck for you.



How to Get the Top GMC Truck Towing Capacity

Since Boardwalk Motors is a pre-owned dealership, keep in mind that towing capacity and payload numbers can vary from one model year to the next. We’re using data from the 2023 GMC truck lineup. To find out the exact towing and payload capacities of a GMC truck that’s a different model year, check the specific truck’s owners manual or contact us. We’re happy to get those numbers to you.
