2023 Chevrolet Traverse Towing Capacity

2023 Chevy Traverse driving on dirt road

The 2023 Chevy Traverse towing capacity can reach as high as 5,000 pounds once you’ve equipped all the options and add-ons you need. Every model comes standard with a 3.6L V6 engine, so you’re covered where power is concerned, but you will need to add the Trailering Equipment Package if you want to reach that 5,000-pound upper limit.

Without the Trailering Equipment Package, the Chevy Traverse towing capacity maxes out at a still-respectable 1,500 pounds. There’s a lot that you can tow with either of these two setups, but shoppers with big plans certainly won’t regret the upgrade.

 

What’s Included with the Chevy Traverse Towing Package?

All 2023 Chevy Traverse models have been built with a rearview camera, lane-keeping assistance, forward automatic emergency braking, and a lane departure warning system. With these features at your disposal, it’s easy to stay safe and in control, even when you’re towing something heavy.

However, the Traverse has even more to offer those who opt for the Trailering Equipment Package. This upgrade includes:

  • 5,000-pound Trailer Hitch
  • Heavy-Duty Cooling System
  • Button-activated Tow/Haul Mode

If you plan on doing a lot of towing, it’s also a good idea to consider options like Hitch Guidance and Hitch View. Hooking up a trailer can be tricky, but these innovative tech features make the job a whole lot easier.

What to Expect from the Chevy Traverse Engine

As mentioned above, every 2023 Chevy Traverse comes standard with a 3.6L V6 engine that outputs 310 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque. Its strength is what makes the 2023 Chevy Traverse towing capacity possible, but this engine is good for much more than that. After all, the Traverse offers a balance of power and fuel efficiency that can help you get more enjoyment out of every trip through Kansas City or Shawnee Mission.
