You’ll be able to customize the differen Enclave trims with the Trailering Package that make it capable for you to reach peak Buick Enclave towing capacity. Find out more below, or contact us with any questions, or just to schedule a test drive.



How Much Can a Buick Enclave Tow?

The 2022 Buick Enclave can tow up to 5,000 pounds, as you’re now well aware. But entry-level models begin with a standard towing capacity of 1,500 pounds. All that’s needed to get the 5,000 pound capacity, though, is adding on the Trailering Package. Meanwhile, many Houston drivers also choose to upgrade to AWD. It is by no means required for towing, but it can certainly be helpful maintaining optimal traction on Porter and New Caney roads when the going gets rough or the weather takes a turn for the worse.

What trims can you get the Encalve Trailering Package on? You’ll find it as an option on Essence, Premium, and Avenir trims; only the base Preferred trim does not include it as an option. Thus, the base trim level has a maximum towing capacity of 1,500 pounds. If you do upgrade trims and choose this package though, you’ll gain access to:

  • Class III Trailer Hitch
  • Heavy-duty engine cooling system
  • Hitch Guidance with Hitch View
  • Tow/Haul mode
