Has the 2020 Chevrolet Traverse caught your attention while shopping for a new three-row SUV near North Charleston? At Rick Hendrick Chevrolet, we’ve found that many drivers are surprised to learn about the impressive Chevy Traverse towing capacity. When properly equipped, the Traverse can haul up to 5,000 pounds with ease! Whether you’re picking up a trailer full of home improvement supplies or you’re taking the family boat out for a weekend on the water, you can count on the new Chevrolet Traverse towing capabilities to get you there.

Chevrolet Traverse Towing by Trim Level

When configuring your new Chevy Traverse, you’ll have seven trim levels to choose from. Across the board, a 3.6L V6 engine is standard. Front-wheel drive is the standard drivetrain, while all-wheel drive is available. While the maximum Chevrolet Traverse towing capacity is 5,000 pounds, some trim levels offer a lower 1,500-pound capacity. To help you choose the right configuration for your towing needs, we’ve broken down the specs by trim level, below:

  • 1,500-Pound Towing Capacity: If you anticipate that you’ll be good to go with the lower 1,500-pound towing capacity, you could opt for the L, LS, LT Cloth, LT Leather, or RS trims with front- or all-wheel drive, or the Premier trim with front-wheel drive only.
  • 5,000-Pound Towing Capacity: If 5,000 pounds sounds more true to the towing jobs you’ll be doing in Mount Pleasant, your trim choices include the Premier with all-wheel drive or the High Country with front- or all-wheel drive.

What Is the Traverse Cargo Volume?

If ever you run out of space for gear in the trailer, the Traverse cargo capacity provides plenty of extra storage room!

  • Cargo Volume With 2nd and 3rd Row Upright: 23.0 cubic feet
  • Cargo Volume With 2nd Row Upright: 57.8 cubic feet
  • Cargo Volume With 2nd and 3rd Row Folded: 98.2 cubic feet

Clever Storage Features

Not only does the Traverse offer ample cargo room, but you’ll also find some smart storage features to help organize the cargo area and make loading up the trunk easier:

  • Traverse Hidden Storage Solution: The Traverse offers a concealed under-floor storage compartment to provide extra space when you need it. The hidden storage can also act as a safe place to stow away your valuables when you’re going to be away from your vehicle for a while in James Island.
  • Hands-Free Liftgate: Have your hands full with sports gear or your materials for this morning’s work presentation? Opening the hands-free liftgate requires no more than a kicking motion.
