The maximum towing capacity of 13,750 and you should not exceed what the manufacturer recommends as you can cause serious harm to your vehicle, yourself, and / or others.

When considering the maximum towing capacity, you also have to consider passenger weight, luggage, etc as all this will reduce the overall capacity... I.e. if you've got 1000lbs in the trunk and 3 passengers plus the driver, your capacity has already dropped to around 12,000

I would like to know if I could pull a holiday trailor that weighs in at 3600 lbs loaded?


Standard towing capicity is 2360 lbs with the 4 cyl motor and towing capicity is 5760 lbs with the 6 cylinder motor.

When towing that kind of weight you need to be careful you don't overheat the transmission or burn up the brakes.

As listed in the owners manual.

Weight of the Trailer
How heavy can a trailer safely be?
It depends on how you plan to use your rig. For
example, speed, altitude, road grades, outside
temperature and how much your vehicle is used to
pull a trailer are all important. It can also depend
on any special equipment that you have on
your vehicle, and the amount of tongue weight the
vehicle can carry. See “Weight of the Trailer
Tongue” later in this section for more information.
Maximum trailer weight is calculated assuming
only the driver is in the tow vehicle and it has all
the required trailering equipment. The weight
of additional optional equipment, passengers and
cargo in the tow vehicle must be subtracted
from the maximum trailer weight.
The following charts show how much your trailer
can weigh, based upon your vehicle model
and options.
2WD Extended Cab Axle Ratio Maximum Trailer Weight GCWR*
Automatic Transmission,
2.9 L Engine 3.73 3,100 lbs (1 406 kg) 7,000 lbs (3 175 kg)
Manual Transmission,
2.9L Engine 3.73 2,100 lbs (952 kg) 6,000 lbs (2 721 kg)
4WD Crew Cab Axle Ratio Maximum Trailer Weight GCWR*
Automatic Transmission,
3.7L Engine 3.73 4,000 lbs (1 814 kg) 9,000 lbs (4 082 kg)
*The Gross Combination Weight Rating (GCWR) is the total allowable weight of the completely loaded
vehicle and trailer including any passengers, cargo, equipment and conversions. The GCWR for your
vehicle should not be exceeded.

Towing capacity


While a Grand Prix isn't really designed to tow,the capacity of the car would be 4 adults and luggage.In my estimation,that would equate to roughly 1000 pounds that the car can comfortably haul around.Now,you do have to realize that this is going to be ******* the transmission especially,and the engine secondly.Definitely install an auxiliary transmission cooler to help dissipate the heat from the trans fluid.A close look at the rear suspension and possibly any upgrades there will help out with the tongue weight that a trailer creates.Check and see how much the trailer actually weighs before proceeding.Unlike cars of 30 years ago,that were outfitted with V8,rear wheel drive, truck engines and transmissions,today's cars really aren't the ideal choice to tow with,as a front wheel drive transaxle is pretty light duty.Towing a lawnmower and small trailer,or a jet ski,no problem.A camper trailer would need to be really light,and the other issue might be brakes.Check your brakes really well on your car,as they will also be stopping the weight of whatever you're towing.Good luck.
