2022 Chevy Traverse Towing Capacity

So, how much can a Chevy Traverse tow exactly? The 2022 Chevy Traverse towing capacity can reach a minimum of 1,500 pounds and a maximum of 5,000 pounds. Your exact towing capabilities will all depend on the equipment you use. The 2022 Chevy Traverse can tow up to 1,500 pounds on its own, with either front- or all-wheel drive. However, the Chevy Traverse’s towing capacity jumps up to 5,000 pounds when equipped with the available trailering package. 

2022 Chevy Traverse Towing Package & Features

Sioux Falls drivers can choose between six available Chevy Traverse trim levels: LS, LT Cloth, LT Leather, RS, Premier, and High Country. Across the lineup, you can expect to find a 9-speed automatic transmission and a 3.6L V6 engine that delivers 310 hp and 266 lb-ft of torque. However, if you truly want to make the most of your 2022 Chevy Traverse towing capacity, you’ll want to consider the following towing enhancements: 

  • Trailer Sway Control: Trailer Sway Control is included as part of Stabilitrak® Electronic Stability Control System. During towing, this system senses when your trailer begins to sway and can course-correct by applying the brakes.
  • Tow/Haul Mode: The Driver Mode Control dial includes a Tow/Haul mode that automatically adjusts the transmission shift points, so you can tow with ease. During acceleration, the transmission will stay in a lower gear for longer to deliver more torque. As you travel downhill, the transmission will downshift to make it easier to retain your speed without heavily applying the brakes. 
  • Available Trailering Package: Installing the 2022 Chevy Traverse towing package adds a hitch to the back of the Traverse, allowing you to hook up a trailer. Additionally, it includes a heavy-duty cooling system, allowing your engine to work harder without overheating.
