More Features for Controlled & Capable Towing in The Villages 

Thanks to an array of advanced technology features, you can reach the max GMC Yukon towing capacity with confidence. Even on difficult terrain or in inclement Dunnellon weather, these systems monitor traction levels and trailer sway, and automatically make adjustments to keep you in control:

  • Trailer Brake Control: Using controls located behind the steering wheel, you can configure the braking system for your trailer.
  • Hill Start Assist: Hill Start Assist holds the brakes as you move your foot between the gas and the brake pedals, so you won’t slide backward when towing on an incline.
  • Trailer Sway Control: Trailer Sway Control uses StabiliTrak sensors to detect when the trailer is swaying, and then sends an alert to the driver.
