2022 Mercedes Benz GLC in front of Golden Gate Bridge

The 2022 Mercedes-Benz GLC towing capacity always reaches as high as 3,500 pounds, no matter which configuration you select. You’ll just need to equip the optional Class II Mercedes-Benz GLC tow hitch in order to access your vehicle’s maximum capacities. The accompanying Mercedes-Benz GLC towing package includes Trailer Stability Assist, which helps to keep you and your passengers safe when you’re towing on the highways of Westport.

GLC Performance Specs & Engine Options

Compared to the 2021 GLC, the 2022 GLC is available in fewer trim levels. However, the 2022 Mercedes-Benz GLC 300 towing capacity continues to impress, and the available models offer plenty of power for drives through Norwalk and Weston:

GLC 300 SUV & GLC 300 4MATIC®® SUV

  • A 2.0L inline-4 turbocharged engine is standard on the GLC 300 SUV and the GLC 300 4MATIC®® SUV. With 255 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque, it’s easy to get up to speed. 
  • Although 4MATIC®® all-wheel drive isn’t required for towing heavy cargo, drivers who plan to do a lot of heavy lifting can certainly benefit from the added control.


  • The AMG® GLC 43 SUV includes an AMG®-Enhanced 3.0L V6 biturbo engine with 385 hp and 384 lb-ft of torque. 4MATIC® all-wheel drive comes standard.

GLC Towing Features

4MATIC® all-wheel drive is just one of many features that can help to make your toughest jobs a whole lot easier. The GLC is also available with each of the following performance and safety features:

  • Blind Spot Assist with Exit Warning Assist
  • Rearview camera
  • Adaptive braking technology
  • Rain-sensing windshield wipers
  • Electric parking brake
  • Active Lane Change Assist
  • Active Brake Assist with Cross-Traffic Function
  • Surround View System
  • ESP® Dynamic Cornering Assist
  • And many others!

GLC Cargo Space

Of course, you won’t always need to hook up a trailer in order to move large or bulky cargo. In SUV models, you’ll have access to 19.4 cubic feet behind the second row, or up to 56.6 cubic feet with the rear seats folded flat. Coupe models are slightly smaller, with up to 17.6 cubic feet behind the second row or up to 49.4 cubic feet behind the first.
