Below, we’ll walk you through what you need to know about the Chevy Traverse towing capacity and why the Traverse might be the best vehicle for your next hauling adventure!

Chevrolet Traverse Towing Package

When equipped with the proper towing tools, the 2023 Chevrolet Traverse can tow up to 5,000 pounds. The Chevrolet Traverse towing package provides drivers with the essential equipment to tow safely and confidently. These include:

  • A trailer hitch that allows you to tow a boat, trailer, or camper up to 5,000 pounds.
  • A heavy-duty cooling system that regulates the engine temperature, preventing overheating even under heavy payloads.

With these towing features, the Chevy Traverse is one of the top SUVs for those ready to explore the outdoors with their friends and family in Cedar City.

2023 Chevy Traverse: Engine and Towing Features

Equipped with a 3.6L V6 engine, the 2023 Chevy Traverse is available in six configurations: LS, LT Cloth, LT Leather, RS, Premier, and High Country. The engine is capable of producing 310 hp and 266 lb-ft torque, and it’s paired with a smooth-shifting 9-speed automatic transmission perfect for cruising on any road in St. George.

Additional features of Chevrolet Traverse include:

  • Tow/Haul Mode: The Driver Mode Selector dial features a Tow/Haul mode that automatically adjusts the transmission shift points, making towing a breeze. During acceleration, the transmission remains in a lower gear for longer to provide more torque. Likewise, when traveling downhill, the transmission downshifts to retain your speed without excessive braking.
  • Available Hitch Guidance: This feature provides hitch guidance lines on the Rear Vision Camera while reversing, helping you align the trailer and hitch. It also allows you to monitor your trailer while driving using the Rear Vision Camera display.
  • Available Hitch Guidance with Hitch View: The Hitch View feature makes it easier to get the trailer lined up by providing a close-up view of the trailer hitch when reversing. When driving, the Rear Vision Camera also provides a close-up view of the trailer connection point so that you can check that everything is secure.
