Towing a Jet Ski or a Small Boat? Trailer Sway Control Makes GMC's Terrain and Acadia Solid Choices

Sheree YangMay 17, 2012
If you're looking to tow something small like a pair of jet skis or a small boat, the GMC Terrain and Acadia crossovers might be just what you're looking for. For starters, the smaller Terrain can tow up to 3,500 pounds when equipped with the optional V-6 -- Terrains fitted with the standard 2.4-liter I-4 are rated to tow just 1500 pounds -- while the bigger Acadia can tow up to 5,200 pounds.

What makes both better as towing vehicles, however, is the standard Trailer Sway Control system. It includes a sensory system for the vehicle to automatically correct the side-to-side motions created by a trailer allowing the vehicle and trailer to be brought back in line. Additionally, both have a built-in rearview camera.

Later this year, the 2013 Terrain will offer a 301-hp 3.6-liter V-6 along with its 3,500-pound towing capacity.
The tow package for the Terrain runs $35, while the Acadia's runs at $525.
