Currently, the 2021 GMC Acadia is offered with the V92 trailering package across the lineup, with the exception of the base-model SL. Now, with the pending release of the 2022 GMC Acadia, the V92 trailering package will be available on all trim levels, as the SL trim will be deleted with the 2022 model year.
However, the big difference with regard to towing capacity will be the availability of the V92 trailering package in conjunction with the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY gasoline engine. Previously, the package required the naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LGX engine to option.
As a result of the new availability of the V92 trailering package, towing capacity for 2022 GMC Acadia models equipped with the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY gasoline engine increases from 1,500 pounds to 3,500 pounds.
To note, the V92 trailering package includes the following content (relevant RPO codes listed in parentheses):
- Factory-installed hitch
- Seven-pin wiring harness
- Class III hitch
- Heavy-duty cooling system (V08)
- Hitch Guidange with hitch View (PZ8)
- Hitch Guidance (CTT)
When added to the SLE trim level, the V92 trailering package requires the Driver Convenience Package (RPO code ZQ2). Additionally, the Hitch Guidance with Hitch View feature (PZ8) is only included in conjunction with the Infotainment package (RPO code Y29). Otherwise, the package includes Hitch Guidance (CTT) without Hitch View.
The V92 trailering package is also included in the Denali Ultimate Package for the Denali trim level.
Pricing information for the V92 trailering package for the 2022 GMC Acadia is currently unavailable.
To note, max tow ratings for GMC Acadia models equipped with the naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LGX and V92 trailering package is set at 4,000 pounds.
As a reminder, the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY is rated at 228 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, while the naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LGX is rated at 310 horsepower and 271 pound-feet of torque. The naturally aspirated 2.5L I4 LCV, rated at 193 horsepower and 188 pound-feet of torque, will be deleted from the Acadia lineup with the introduction of the 2022 model year, as GM Authority covered previously.
