When it comes to SUVs, there’s nothing like the 2016
GMC Acadia. Other than being a reliable car with a base-level towing capacity of 1,000 pounds, it’s powerful enough to handle any of your cargo needs.
While 1,000 pounds is a high enough towing capacity for most people, you can always opt for a higher trim with a higher capacity. In fact, the
GMC Acadia SLTcomes with a 5,200-pound towing capacity, which could be worthwhile for bigger towing jobs.
Remember that higher trims are more expensive than lower ones. A base model 2016 Acadia in good condition will typically cost around $25,000. However, an SLT can easily cost around $40,000. Before you put down the money for a higher trim, make sure it’s something you need.
And if you do decide to buy an SLT, make sure it has the right car insurance coverage with
