What Is the Towing Capacity of the 2019 GMC Sierra 1500?

We’ll kick things off with the most alluring aspect of the GMC Sierra 1500 — its astounding performance. You’ll command a confident 285 horsepower and 305 lb.-ft. of torque courtesy of the 4.3L EcoTec3 V6 engine, standing at the ready to take on whatever the day throws at you. If that includes hauling a trailer, you’re in luck, because this standard powertrain gets you a brawny 3,493-kg. maximum towing capacity1! Better yet, you’ll have plenty of engineering backing you up in the form of Tow/Haul mode, which optimizes your 6-speed automatic transmission for enhanced acceleration and braking. The latter is also boosted by Powertrain Grade Braking, which has your engine and transmission taking on some of the work in slowing you down with more control.

Safety Features

In addition to providing you with performance capability, the 2019 Sierra 1500 is also incredibly well-equipped to keep you protected on the road. You’ll notice this as soon as you prepare to roll out in the morning, because the Rear Vision Camera2 will come to life on your center-stack touchscreen when you shift into reverse, giving you a clear view of the area behind you. Once you’re out and about on Yellowhead Highway, you can rely on available driver-assist features like Forward Collision Alert2, which scans the road ahead of you and will warn you of any imminent impact risks. In the event that a crash does occur, as much energy as possible will be absorbed by the high-strength steel fully boxed frame and its hydroformed front section, while six standard airbags3 will cushion you inside the cabin.

Exterior Equipment

The Sierra 1500 will only continue to prove itself once you’ve reached your destination, providing you with plenty of helpful exterior features. If you’re going to be spending the day on a worksite, you’ll love the standard front and rear black molded splash guards — especially if you opt for the available 22-inch high gloss black wheels! You won’t have to worry about any strain as you enter or exit the cab when you equip the optional 6-inch chrome rectangular assist steps, while the standard CornerStep rear bumper and its textured step pads ensure you can access the truck bed with ease. Speaking of which, this area will be illuminated with cab-mounted cargo area lamps that can easily be upgraded to crisp cargo bed LED lighting that will let you keep working as dusk falls.
