Not sure about the brakes but I did read somewhere on the forums here that reprogramming of a module is req'd for the connector to work.
You can tow 1500 lbs with brakes. No wiring for brakes is provided. It is the 4 prong flat plug if you have the factory tow package.oracle said:Hi,
According to page 271/410 of the users manual I need a trailer with brakes otherwise is just 1000lbs Max. for the trailer.
Do you know if the 4 or 5? prong connector by the hitch have the brake controller already? Or we're responsible for that to get installed (and risk loosing the warranty)?

V6 can tow 3500lbs with a trailer equipped with brakes. If not it is limited to 1000 or 1500 lbs. This is a recommendation... If you tow more than 1500lbs a couple of time during year it is not a problem you will not destroy your car. Just drive in consequence...oracle said:Why do you say 1500 lbs? (where did you get that information?) Mine is a v6 so according to the table is 3500 lbs.
Yes, the Terrain came with the towing package from factory with the flat connector.
According to the table all Terrain regardless of engine can only tow trailers without brakes of 1000 lbs. and the GCVW is 5071 lbs down from 8157 lbs in my V6 AWD.
