How Much Can the 2021 Chevy Traverse Tow?

The 2021 Chevrolet Traverse towing capacity is between 1,500 pounds and 5,000 pounds, depending on the trim and equipment you choose. It tows up to 1,500 pounds with front- or all-wheel drive without the available trailering package, but when you opt for the available trailering package, it can tow up to 5,000 pounds.

2021 Chevrolet Traverse: Engine & Towing Features

The 2021 Chevy Traverse comes in seven available configurations: the L, LS, LT Cloth, LT Leather, RS, Premier, and High Country. Each Traverse trim comes equipped with a 3.6L V6 engine capable of 310 hp and 266 lb-ft of torque and is paired with a 9-speed automatic transmission for smooth shifting on Fort Dodge streets. These are some of the towing features that make the Traverse so efficient:

  • Available Trailering Package: The towing package adds a hitch to the back of the Traverse, allowing you to hook up your trailer. Plus, it includes a heavy-duty cooling system so 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 around Lake View with ease. During accelerating, the transmission stays in a lower gear for longer to deliver more torque. As you travel downhill, the transmission downshifts 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. This system detects when your trailer begins to sway and can course-correct by applying the brakes automatically.
