Are the Towing Scores Different for the 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 and Sierra 1500 Limited? 

A pickup truck’s towing capacity determines the maximum weight it can pull, which is important for drivers who often tow heavy loads, especially on long hauls. If you tow more than the maximum towing or trailering capacity of a truck, it can severely damage the engine, transmission, tires and frame. Moreover, failing to obey the towing standards or the maximum capacity can lead to serious safety concerns on the road.
