The Maximum Chevrolet Traverse Towing Capacity

Depending on which equipment you choose, the 2021 Chevy Traverse towing capacity ranges from 1,500 pounds to 5,000 pounds. By choosing the available trailering package, you’ll get access to that 5,000 pound capacity and be ready for anything in Hannibal. 

2021 Chevrolet Traverse: Towing Features & Engine

There are also towing features on the Traverse that make towing safe and easy. They include: 

  • Available Trailering Package: The towing package adds a hitch to the back of the Traverse, which makes it possible to hook up a trailer. The package also includes a heavy-duty cooling system. That way, your engine can work harder without overheating. 
  • Tow/Haul Mode: Using the Driver Mode Control dial, you can put the Traverse into Tow/Haul mode. Tow/Haul mode automatically adjusts the transmission shift points so you can tow with ease. When you accelerate, the transmission stays in a lower gear for longer, delivering more torque. If you travel downhill, the transmission will downshift. This makes it easier to retain your speed without heavily applying the brakes. 
  • Trailer Sway Control: The Stabilitrak® Electronic Stability Control System includes Trailer Sway Control. It senses when your trailer begins to sway and keeps you safe by applying the brakes to course-correct.

The 2021 Chevy Traverse comes in seven configurations: L, LS, LT Cloth, LT Leather, RS, Premier, and High Country. The source of their Chevrolet Traverse towing abilities is their 3.6L V6 engine that’s capable of 310 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque. The engine also comes connected to a 9-speed automatic transmission that allows for smooth shifts on Keokuk roads.
