How do I find out my towing capacity? All of our trucks come with some many different options/engines/trans coolers/etc????

If you have the Owners Manual......in Section 9.......it has the Towing Specs......for model's meaning....Reg....Ext....Crew Cab's.....2wd/4wd......1/2 or 3/4 Ton....Bed Size.....what Size Engine....and What Gears......it will show you the Max Tow Ratings and (GCWR) for each setup.

Also there is a yearly publication about towing put out about tow ratings that'll tell you all the ratings plus has advice on proper tow techniqueSHNOOL's tow rig - 2012 Chevy Silverado 2500HD Crew Cab 4x4 with 4:10 gears, 6.0 liter gas, and LONG bed. Gooseneck hitch, integrated brake controller, Onstar, bluetooth, and bare bones after that (crank windows and rubber floors).

I took time to read the manual...............I know us men should never read the manual or ask for directions.
Mine will pull 9,500lbs with a weight distributing trailer hitch set up===== Muy Macho

How do I find this for my 95 Suburban - owner's manual only has 8 sections. Trying to find online is a pain too - seems I can find the max capacity but realize there are a lot of factors for this. Owner's manual on page 4-41 says see your dealer for towing information or write to some address in Canada. I can't believe it is this difficult to find. My 99 has it in the owner's manual...

There is a 2012 GM Consumer Information Truck-Camper Loading link box on the upper left.
To see towing specs, go to Print Book. Select your vehicle, then select Trailering Specs, click Print. A new print window opens with all the specs. ..
Lots of other great info too. Enjoy.Mike - Alabama
