The Chevy Traverse has gained a following in Daphne for its 8-person cabin, best-in-class cargo, and high-tech features – but just how much can it tow? The 2021 Chevy Traverse towing capacity reaches up to 5,000 pounds when fully equipped. Add features like the Chevy Traverse tow package, and you’ve got one unstoppable ride for the Southern Chevrolet, Inc. roads. Let’s take a deeper dive into Chevrolet Traverse towing.

2021 Traverse Towing Specs

The Chevy Traverse towing capacity starts with a strong engine. This 3.6L V6 generates a whopping 210 hp and 266 lb-ft of torque, and the 9-speed automatic transmission creates smooth and seamless shifting on the Mobile roads. The result is a towing capacity between 1,500 and 5,000 pounds. While all models can reach at least 1,500 pounds in towing, the full Chevrolet Traverse towing max comes from the available Chevy Traverse tow package.

Towing Features

The engine isn’t the only star of the show when it comes to Chevrolet Traverse towing chops. From the Chevy Traverse Tow Package to Driver Mode Control, this SUV is equipped with tons of technology to create the best driving experience possible. Take a look at some of the options available:

  • Chevy Traverse Tow Package: This optional trailering package includes components like a trailer hitch, heavy-duty cooling system, and hitch guidance to make easy work of even the toughest tasks.
  • Tow/Haul Mode: Switch your Driver Mode Control into Tow/Haul mode to boost your performance. The transmission will stay in a lower gear for longer, which increases your available torque.
  • Trailer Sway Control: Part of the Stabilitrak® Electronic Stability Control System, Trailer Sway Control monitors your trailer for unwanted movement – automatically braking when necessary.
