Chevrolet Traverse Towing Details

The 2021 Chevrolet Traverse towing abilities range from 1,500 to 5,000 pounds. The limits of your SUV depend on whether you opt for the available trailering package. Without the support of the trailering package, the Chevy Traverse towing capacity is 1,500 pounds. With the trailering package equipment, the Chevrolet Traverse is rated to tow up to 5,000 pounds. 

Explore the Traverse Engine & Helpful Towing Features

The 2021 Traverse has an option to suit any driver in Mount Pleasant with a total of seven configurations: L, LS, LT Cloth, LT Leather, RS, Premier, and High Country. All seven trims are equipped with the same 3.6L V6 engine, which achieves 310 hp and 266 lb-ft of torque. 

  • Optional Trailering Package: The trailering package equips the Traverse with a trailering hitch so you’re ready to start towing immediately, as well as a heavy-duty cooling system that regulates the engine temperature for safe towing. 
  • Tow/Haul Mode: The Traverse has a Driver Mode Control dial featuring a Tow/Haul mode. When you switch to Tow/Haul, the transmission’s shift points are automatically adjusted for a smoother towing experience. The transmission maintains a low gear while accelerating to create more torque. If you’re descending a hill, the transmission will downshift so you can maintain brake pressure and speed without pressing too hard on the brake pedal. 
  • Trailer Sway Control: This feature is contained within the Stabilitrak® Electronic Stability Control System. If trailer sway is detected, the brakes are applied to help regain control.
