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.
