2021 Chevy Traverse Towing Capacity

July 13th, 2021 by

Chevy Traverse

Looking for a family-friendly three-row crossover that can help you take on anything you bring its way? The 2021 Chevy Traverse is a great pick. This Chevy has the space you require to take trips outside Oshkosh and Campbellsport, but it also has a large standard engine that enables a 5,000-pound towing capacity. That’s enough to tow a camper or small boat, among other things! Read on to learn more or contact us anytime at Holiday Chevrolet Buick GMC.


More On the Chevrolet Traverse Towing Capacity

The 2021 Chevrolet Traverse maximum towing capacity is 5,000 pounds, as alluded to above. But that towing capacity requires the available trailering package. Without this package, the maximum Chevrolet Traverse towing capacity is 1,500 pounds. That’s also true whether you opt for front- or all-wheel drive.

2021 Chevrolet Traverse Towing-Enhancing Features

Whether or not you’re aware, the new Chevy Traverse is available in seven unique trim configurations: L, LS, LT Cloth, LT Leather, RS, Premier, and High Country.

Luckily for you, each of the Chevy Traverse trims boasts a gutsy 3.6L V6 engine that’s capable of 310 hp and 266 lb-ft of torque. Mated to a 9-speed automatic transmission, this powertrain combination is the starting point for the Chevy Traverse towing capacity. Here are some other towing-enhancing features worth mentioning:

  • Tow/Haul Mode: The Driver Mode Control dial inside the new Traverse boasts a practical Tow/Haul mode that automatically adjusts the transmission shift points so you can tow easily, without a second thought. When you accelerate in tow/haul mode, the transmission remains in a lower gear longer in order to deliver more torque and increase traction. As you travel downhill, the transmission even downshifts to make it easier to retain your speed without putting too much pressure or wear on your brakes.
  • Available Trailering Package: Installing the trailering package adds a hitch to the back of the Traverse, allowing you to hook up a trailer. AIt also adds a heavy-duty cooling system, helping your engine work harder without overheating.
  • Trailer Sway Control: Trailer Sway Control is included as part of Stabilitrak® Electronic Stability Control System. When you use this system while towing, it senses when your trailer begins to sway and can course-correct for you by applying the brakes.
