  1. Towing & Hauling
    I have a 2011 Acadia (AWD) with the heavy duty tow package, so it is rated to tow 5200lbs. I have a 17 foot 1978 Bayliner Mutiny 1700 . The boat with motor, gear, and trailer is about 2300lbs ( boat 1100lbs, motor 300lbs, trailer estimated at 700lbs, if full gas 110lbs ( 18 gallons) and light...
  2. Towing & Hauling
    I’m due for a new set it tires. I will be occasionally towing a 4000lbs boat and drive a 2016 sle AWD. Are there certain tires that would be better? I can’t really find much online about it which leads me to believe it’s not a big deal and it’s more important to get a tire that will perform...
  3. Towing & Hauling
    Here are some questions about adding towing 1. Would you just add the HD radiator or, leave the existing and add a transmission cooler? 2.

  4. DIY, Aftermarket/Upgrades
    I'm not sure if anyone on the forum has installed the Bilstein B6 struts and/or shocks on their Acadia — because I didn't find much in my earlier searching — so I figured I would provide a review.

  7. Towing & Hauling
    I have contacted GM on a couple of occasions to find what my Acadia can tow. I have a 2017 GMC Acadia with the V6. I cannot find any information on what it can tow. It says either 1,000 or 4,000 with available towing package. I called them and gave my VIN number and the lady says 4,000 lbs. I...
