2019 GMC Sierra 1500 capability
GMC knows how to make classy trucks and SUVs, but the real secret is that they can somehow make these beautiful machines and still give them insane capabilities. We will demonstrate this fact as we go over 2019 GMC Sierra 1500 capability numbers and figures including both payload and towing.
Max towing and payload figures for the 2019 GMC Sierra 1500
For all trims except the Denali and the Elevation trim, you have the option between a Double Cab and a larger Crew Cab and we will break down numbers for both.
Double Cab Capability
Towing: Up To 12,200 Pounds
Payload: Up To 2,160 Pounds
All Double Cab Sierra 1500 models are only available with a standard box that measures nearly 80 inches. The Double Cab is the only cab available on the Elevation trim.
Crew Cab Capability
Towing: Up To 12,100 Pounds
Payload: Up To 2,140 Pounds
On all Crew Cab models including the Denali, the Sierra 1500 is available with a short box that measures nearly 70 inches and the same standard box as the Double Cab models.
To get these towing figures, you will need to get the Max Trailering Package, which is available on the SLE, SLT, and Elevation trims but not available on the base trim or the Denali trim. The MSRP of the package also varies depending on the model.
How much can the Sierra 1500 Denali tow?
We covered the max towing, but what about the GMC Sierra 1500 Denali? Due to some of its configuration requirements, it doesn’t have quite the towing figures of the rest of the lineup, but it is still impressive.
The Sierra 1500 Denali – which only comes with a Crew Cab – offers a max trailering capability of 9,600 pounds. You get this number with the 5.3-liter V8 in the two-wheel-drive configuration. When it comes to payload, it can still deliver up to 2,030 pounds of capacity when properly configured.
