2021 Mercedes-Benz GLC Towing Capacity

Exterior view of the 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLC
The 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLC towing capacity can reach as high as 3,500 pounds in any configuration, including the GLC 300. You’ll need the optional Class II trailer hitch in order to reach the maximum GLC towing capacity, and all models that possess this feature will also receive Trailer Stability Assist. That’s another way of saying that a properly-equipped GLC is more than capable of moving heavy cargo through Beverly Hills or Inglewood.

2021 GLC Performance Specs & Engine Options

Although the maximum GLC towing capacity never changes, you’ll have a wide range of engine options to consider when you’re picking out your vehicle. Here’s a comprehensive overview of the options in our inventory:

  • 2021 GLC 300 SUV: 2.0L i4 turbocharged engine with 255 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque
  • 2021 GLC 300 4MATIC® SUV: 2.0L i4 turbocharged engine with 255 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque
  • 2020 GLC 350e 4MATIC® SUV: Plug-in hybrid powertrain with 315 combined hp and 516 lb-ft of combined torque
  • 2021 AMG® GLC 43 SUV: AMG®-enhanced 3.0L V6 biturbo engine with 385 hp and 384 lb-ft of torque
  • 2021 AMG® GLC 63 SUV:  Handcrafted® AMG® 4.0L V8 biturbo engine with 469 hp and 479 lb-ft of torque

Although the GLC 300 towing capacity already reaches the 3,500-pound maximum, many drivers who want to tow choose to upgrade with 4MATIC® all-wheel drive. This technology provides superior traction and control, so you can move more confidently with a trailer in tow. On the upper-level AMG® configurations, AMG® Performance 4MATIC® all-wheel drive comes standard. This technology is even more responsive to changing conditions.

If you think you might need even more power, compare the 2021 GLC to the GLE! The stronger, larger alternative might feel like a perfect fit.

GLC Payload Capacity and Cargo Space

It’s worth pointing out that you won’t always need to hook up a trailer in order to move large, heavy, or unwieldy cargo. Here’s what you should keep in mind when you’re investigating the 2021 GLC interior:

  • The 2021 Mercedes-Benz GLC can store up to 19.4 cubic feet of cargo with its rear seats upright.
  • Fold the rear seats flat, and you can access up to 56.6 cubic feet of cargo space.
  • The Mercedes-Benz GLC offers a total payload capacity of up to 1,466 pounds. That means you’ll have plenty of room to play around with cargo — even when you’re travelling with one or more passengers.
