5. GMC Acadia
The 2015 GMC Acadia is known for being more like a car than a towing machine. However, it does offer a respectable 5,200 lbs. capacity when owners choose the towing package. The 3.6-liter V-6 engine gives up about 288 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque. This is not a bad choice for someone who needs a family vehicle, but wants to take a small boat to the lake on weekends. With room for up to eight people, families can bring some friends too. It is available with an optional four wheel drive and an optional upgrade to the Denali edition. The Denali offers an “acoustic package” designed to help keep road noises down.
