Towing Capacity of 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe


My Tahoes GVWR states is 7100 LBS. Does that meant I can Tow a trailer thats up to 7100 lbs?


Expert Reply:

A vehicle's gross vehicle weight rating, or GVWR, is the maximum weight the vehicle can weigh when it's fully loaded, not including a trailer. Basically, you should never put enough stuff inside the Tahoe (including people, gas, and everything else) to make it weigh more than 7,100 pounds.

You may also see your GCWR, or gross combined weight rating. This is the total amount of weight the Tahoe can move, including if it's loaded to 7,100 plus the maximum weight of a trailer it can pull.

Check your owner's manual to find your Tahoe's towing capacity. From what I found it ranges from 6,000 to 8,600 pounds depending on the drive, wheelbase, and axle ratio. If you're not sure of the specs of your Tahoe you can also contact GM with your VIN and they can tell you exactly how your Tahoe was equipped from the factory.
