You bet. It's towable 4 down. Here's a link where you can download the information for 2012:

Our Acadia is a cousin to the Enclave. Run the engine for 5 minutes before towing, pull BATT1 fuse, and off you go. I installed a switch so all I have to do is flip it between TOW and DRIVE, so I don't have to pull the fuse. Easy. Hope that helps!

Be sure to check the owners manual for the final say.

The Enclave owner manual tells you how to prep fr towing, e.g. fuses to pull, tranny position, etc.

You need a tow bar, base plates (connects tow bar to car), a toad brake system, and a way to connect the car stop/tail/turn lights to the coach. Lots of choices for those, and you can read numerous opinions here about the "best way". They all seem to work ok, though, so the pros and cons are a matter of personal preferences and cost vs convenience trade-offs.
