2022 Chevy Traverse Towing Features 

As you can see, the Traverse adds impressive capabilities to your Independence drives. This Chevy SUV rounds out its capable performance with towing features that give you peace of mind on the road: 

  • Available Trailering Package: This package allows you to enjoy the maximum towing capacity by adding a tow hitch and a heavy-duty cooling system, allowing your engine to work harder without overheating. 
  • Tow/Haul Mode: The Driver Mode Control allows you to select a mode that fits your needs. Selecting the Tow/Haul mode automatically adjusts the transmission shift points for an easier towing experience. As you accelerate, the transmission will stay in a lower gear for longer, delivering more torque. When the vehicle is traveling downhill, the transmission will downshift to make it easier to retain speed without heavily applying the brakes. 
  • Trailer Sway Control: Trailer Sway Control is included as part of Stabilitrak® Electronic Stability Control System. This system can sense when the trailer begins to sway and can course-correct it by applying the brakes.

Our team at Tom Gill Chevrolet is excited to tell you more about the 2021 Chevy Traverse towing capacity in detail and in examples of what this SUV can tow. 

How Much Can a 2021 Chevy Traverse Tow?

What Can a 2021 Chevy Traverse Tow? 

Now that we know how much a 2021 Chevy Traverse can tow, we can gauge what exactly a Traverse can tow. The answer will, once again, depend if the Traverse has the trailering package. 

Without the available trailering package, you can expect the 2021 Traverse to tow anything less than 1,500 pounds. This will most likely be ideal towing within or near Cincinnati, OH. Some examples of what you can tow with this level of towing capability include:

  • Motorcycle
  • Select small camping trailers (consider items inside, as they will add to the overall weight) 
  • Snowmobile
  • Pair of canoes
  • Light rowboat

At the Traverse’s maximum capacity of 5,000 pounds with the package, a 2021 Chevy Traverse can tow more for trips farther away from Independence. This could include:

  • Two motorbikes/snowmobiles
  • Wider selection of single-axle, midsize camping trailers that can sleep up to four people and that can house on-board plumbing and kitchen appliances and occasionally restroom facilities
  • Larger boats

2021 Chevy Traverse Towing Features & Engine Specs

In addition to how much a Chevy Traverse can tow, its engine and towing features also make it an excellent SUV for weekend road trips. There are seven trim levels (L, LS, LT Cloth, LT Leather, RS, Premier, and High Country) available for the 2021 Chevrolet Traverse, and they all have a 3.6L V6 engine capable of 310 hp and 266 lb-ft of torque. 

Furthermore, you will be able to drive smoothly on your road trips even while towing since the Traverse’s engine is connected to a 9-speed automatic transmission. Some towing features that the Traverse offers include:

  • Available Trailering Package: With this package, you can hook up a trailer to the hitch at the back of the Traverse. The package also has a heavy-duty cooling system to ensure your engine won’t overheat even when it is working harder.
  • Tow/Haul Mode: Tow confidently with the Tow/Haul mode included in the Driver Mode Control dial as the mode will automatically change the transmission shift points. This means that the transmission will be in a lower gear for longer to deliver more torque as you accelerate and the transmission will downshift to retain your speed easily as you travel downhill. 
  • Trailer Sway Control: During towing, the Stabilitrak® Electronic Stability Control System can course-correct when it senses your trailer swaying.
