Although we’re clearly going to focus on the Traverse’s towing experience, we’re also going to take this opportunity to speak on towing as a whole. By the end of this quick read, you’ll probably realize – along with so many Chevy Traverse and other SUV owners – that a staggering towing capacity just isn’t necessary for a great majority of what Hicksville area drivers ask of their hauling machines.
We’ll get the numbers out of the way before the examples. The Chevy Traverse, in its 2021 year model, has a max trailer weight of 2000 pounds. That, combined with plenty of storage space and a GVWR (maximum weight of your vehicle) of 6160 lbs, means there’s plenty of ways to haul a wide variety of items in your Chevy Traverse!
It’s also worth noting that the Traverse does not ship with a tow hitch by factory default in most cases. They’re fairly inexpensive and easy to install, but for the guaranteed safest fitment and installation of a Chevy Traverse tow hitch, we recommend buying a hitch through our Parts Center and having it installed by a certified technician here at our Hempstead Service Center.
Even though it’s not necessarily towing capacity – let’s talk briefly about GVWR, which stands for Gross Vehicle Weight Rating. It’s a figure that represents the safe limit of weight which the suspension of your vehicle can support, and also includes the weight of the vehicle itself. As we mentioned earlier, this figure for the 2021 Chevy Traverse is 6160 lbs. If we subtract it’s curb weight of 4,713, it tells us that as far as total onboard extra weight goes, we can safely have 1447 lbs worth of people, gear, and more!
So what exactly can you do with 2000 lbs towing capacity and that 1,447 GVWR wiggle room? Quite a bit, it turns out. These figures are enough to safely pack the vehicle with up to 8 other family and friends, fill up the 23 cubic feet of cargo space with food and gear, and take your choice of outdoor fun on a small-medium size trailer behind you!
Thrill seeking on land or sea, the Chevy Traverse towing capacity is enough to bring along your favorite toys, like a couple of dirt bikes or jet skis to enjoy in this brilliant New York Summer!
