Yes, and it also varies within the same manufacturer, and even between years of the same model. My 2004 Sienna manual includes the GCWR, but some later years don't. The Highlander manual is great, but the RAV4 manual doesn't mention GCWR. The old Matrix manual (I haven't looked at a recent one, and that model is now gone) barely admitted that towing was possible.
Generally, within a manufacturer the more likely a model is to be used for towing - or perhaps the more that the model is promoted for towing - the better the information in the manual.
