Towing 2015 GMC Canyon

Has anyone towed the 2015 GMC Canyon? We've towed the Sierra but the directions to tow the Canyon are repetitive & confusing!

2015 Canyon

I plan to go through the owners manual and make a checklist -- I read the manual several times and it is confusing, but nothing really complicated if you take the time to reduce it to simple steps. We will have our first chance to see how it tows in a couple of weeks.

We actually did it, and it was pretty easy. John actually bought a battery quick disconnect because with the navi on the truck it had to be disconnected. We said bought one that sits in the battery with an extended post so you can connect your negative line to it. It worked like a charm-the directions over complicated the whole process!

Where did you get the battery disconnect?

Tow Set-up for 2015 GMC Canyon

We did get the knife battery disconnect and everything set up for towing our 2015 GMC Canyon at Camping World in New Braunfels, Texas. They did a great job installing the Blue Ox Baseplate and connecting a powerline from the motorhome to the pick-up to power the Brake Buddy. He didn't have to do any drilling for a socket plate and he set it up with a 12volt socket that was on the end of the cord so it could be tucked away under the carpet behind and below the emergency brake. Also, Blue Ox has engineered the base plate so it fits perfectly in the space just above the bumper!

I wish the engineers at GMC had done a better job in setting up the transfer case dial. It is too small and hard to read where the neutral position is when you have to lean over way below the steering wheel to see it. Other than that, the Canyon tows beautifully.
