The 2021 Chevy Traverse is capable in more ways than one. Not only does it offer spacious eight-person seating across three rows, but when properly equipped, it can tow up to 5,000 pounds. That’s enough muscle to haul a small camper or boat for a weekend getaway. Below, you can learn more about the new Chevy Traverse towing capacity and the features that make it possible. 


How Much Can the Chevy Traverse Tow? 

The 2021 Chevrolet Traverse can tow between 1,500 pounds and 5,000 pounds, depending on the equipment you choose. Without the available trailering package, it tows up to 1,500 pounds with front- or all-wheel drive. With the available trailering package, on the other hand, it’s capable of towing up to 5,000 pounds. 

2021 Chevrolet Traverse: Engine & Towing Features 

The 2021 Chevy Traverse is available in seven configurations: L, LS, LT Cloth, LT Leather, RS, Premier, and High Country. Each comes equipped with a 3.6L V6 engine that’s capable of 310 hp and 266 lb-ft of torque. The engine is connected to a 9-speed automatic transmission for smooth shifts on Valparaiso roads. What’s more, the Traverse SUV includes the following features for easier and safer towing: 

  • Available Trailering Package: Installing the towing package adds a hitch to the back of the Traverse, allowing you to hook up a trailer. Additionally, it includes a heavy-duty cooling system, allowing your engine to work harder without overheating. 
  • Tow/Haul Mode: The Driver Mode Control dial includes a Tow/Haul mode that automatically adjusts the transmission shift points so you can tow with ease. During accelerating, the transmission will stay in a lower gear for longer to deliver more torque. As you travel downhill, the transmission will downshift to make it easier to retain your speed without heavily applying the brakes. 
  • Trailer Sway Control: Trailer Sway Control is included as part of Stabilitrak® Electronic Stability Control System. During towing, this system senses when your trailer begins to sway and can course-correct by applying the brakes.
