CAN THE 2024 GENESIS GV70 TOW?

2024 Genesis GV70 Towing Capacity

The answer to this question is “yes” – the Genesis GV70 towing capacity can pull along all the adventure campers, gear haulers, or weekend toys you demand of it. Just make sure you do not tow a trailer during the vehicle’s first 1,200 miles of operation, as the owner’s manual says. Once that 1,200-mile break-in period is over, and after you’ve purchased and installed the necessary extra equipment, the world will be your oyster.

That extra equipment would be the Genesis GV70 tow package. Fret not, since securing this package is a simple process, and one we can help with. We’ll get to those details in a bit – first, let’s see just how much this refined and elegant luxury SUV can pull along.

What Is the Genesis GV70 Towing Capacity?

Now you know this model can tow, but how much can it tow? The GV70 towing capacity comes in at up to 3,500 pounds when properly equipped. However, please note that the tongue weight (the load directly on the trailer hitch) must be between 10% and 15% of the total loaded trailer weight and that you must not tow with your GV70 until it has logged 1,200 miles. There’s more to consider, like legal restrictions and trailer weight distribution, among other factors, so consult your owner’s manual before towing.

Maybe you’ve dreamt of driving a Genesis SUV, but that new camper you bought for your next adventure weighs more than 3,500 pounds. The good news is that there’s another Genesis SUV that can make your towing dreams come true. Compare the Genesis GV70 and GV80, and you’ll find that the larger GV80 packs a maximum towing capacity of up to 6,000 pounds when properly equipped.

Here’s how the Genesis GV70 towing capacity stacks up to that of the competition:

Safe GV70 Towing Tips

You’re almost ready to make good use of those 2024 Genesis GV70 specs, but first, here are a couple of tips to make towing go smoothly.

Leave More Braking Room

Flashback to science class: What is momentum? This is an open-book test, so we’ll just tell you that momentum equals mass multiplied by velocity. Using the Genesis GV70 towing capacity to its fullest adds a significant amount of mass to your vehicle, and the increased momentum means it takes more braking force to slow down. Be alert, and leave twice the distance between you and the vehicle ahead than you normally would.

Practice Reversing With a Trailer

Backing up with a trailer can be daunting at first, so practice this in a safe, open space before your first real towing project. Place your hand on the bottom of your steering wheel, and while slowly reversing, move your hand to the left to turn the trailer left or right to turn the trailer right. You’ll be a natural; we’re sure of it.
