According to the GM document that was issued to dealers, certain 2021 model-year Chevy Tahoe and GMC Yukon SUVs “may have a condition in which the trailering label has zeroed-out information on the label. Information such as Gross Combined Weight Rating (GCWR), Conventional Trailering Weight Rating (TWR) and Max Tongue Weight may show a zero instead of the proper amounts.”
This problem is simple to fix, as it only requires a replacement of the trailer weight label. GM says that “because this label can be easily installed by the customer, and to reduce their inconvenience, labels and installation instructions will be mailed to customers of record.” Customers of record can expect to receive their labels and instructions in the mail sometime in the near future.
Dealerships will be required to replace these trailering weight labels for any affected vehicles that may be on their lot still as well. These trailering weight labels are VIN-specific and dealers will have to provide a corresponding VIN to place an order for the labels.
The trailering labels on the 2021 Chevy Tahoe and 2021 GMC Yukon let the user know the maximum weight ratings the vehicle can handle. A vehicle’s tow ratings can vary based on how it is equipped from the factory, but it’s not clear why some GM trailering labels read zero in place of the actual weight rating/figure.
The 2021 Chevy Tahoe and GMC Yukon are all-new for the 2021 model year and ride on GM’s updated T1 platform with independent rear suspension. The closely related SUVs are built alongside each other at the GM Arlington Assembly plant in Texas. Pricing for the Tahoe starts at $50,995, while the Yukon is a bit costlier at $51,995.
