GMC Terrain: Driving Characteristics and Towing Tips
The driver can lose control when pulling a trailer if the correct equipment is not used or the vehicle is not driven properly. For example, if the trailer is too heavy, the brakes may not work wellвЂ”or even at all. The driver and passengers could be seriously injured. The vehicle may also be damaged; the resulting repairs would not be covered by the vehicle warranty. Pull a trailer only if all the steps in this section have been followed. Ask your dealer for advice and information about towing a trailer with the vehicle.
The vehicle can tow a trailer when equipped with the proper trailer towing equipment. For trailering capacity, see вЂњTrailer TowingвЂќ following in this section. Trailering changes handling, acceleration, braking, durability and fuel economy. With the added weight, the engine, transmission, wheel assemblies and tires are forced to work harder and under greater loads. The trailer also adds wind resistance, increasing the pulling requirements. For safe trailering, correctly use the proper trailering equipment.
The following information has important trailering tips and rules for your safety and that of your passengers. Read this section carefully before pulling a trailer.
