Chevy Traverse/GMC Acadia as tow vehicle?

Thanks, everyone, for the great feedback on my earlier post (Honda Pilot). Now I've found another vehicle that piques my interest, the GM 'Lambda' platform SUV. I understand that with the factory tow package, they can tow up to 5200 lbs. Does anyone have experience with this setup? If so, FWD or AWD? Real world experience? Gas mileage? (thanks in advance)

That's pretty much the same size and design as my Highlander. It should tow very well. I like awd for sure, it is great on wet pavement as well as snow & ice.

The vehicle will tow anything presently on offer in the molded fiberglass trailer world, and a good many units of other kinds of construction.

NOT all at the same time!
