Can Genesis GV80 Tow?

This is precisely what we're here for. And, of course, the answer is yes! Much of the hassle of prepping your vehicle for towing is taken away, thanks to the fact that all Genesis GV80 models are set up with the proper towing wiring. If you do want to tow, you'll still need to purchase a tow harness and hitch. Yet again, that process is also made simple because you can purchase the Genesis GV80 tow kit that has a harness and hitch included. 

Though you only need a one-word response to this question about the Genesis GV80 towing, we'll give you more than that because you deserve it. In short, yes! The Genesis GV80 can absolutely tow. And, it can probably tow more than you might've thought previously. Though the Genesis GV80 is an elegant and refined SUV, it has the ability to get down and dirty with towing jobs that the rest of the class can do (and, in most cases, it can tow more). No matter which of the Genesis GV80 trims you have (or which one you're planning on purchasing), we have a great feeling that you'll be pleasantly surprised by what it can do.

What is the towing capacity of the Genesis GV80? 

The Genesis GV80 towing capacity is rated to go up to 6,000 pounds1 when properly equipped. Not all SUVs can do that! The tongue weight, if you were curious, is 900 pounds. Of course, it is essential that you double-check your owner's manual for any restrictions and to find out the exact numbers with which you can tow and stay safe while doing it. For example, your owner's manual will tell you that it is required for drivers not to tow anything with their Genesis GV80 during the first 1,200 miles of driving.
