2020 Chevrolet Traverse Towing Specs

If you’ve done your research, you know that the 2020 Traverse is available in seven well-appointed trim levels. Each trim builds off of a robust 3.6L V6 engine and standard front-wheel drive or available all-wheel drive. Despite sharing the same base engine, your choice of trim will affect the Chevy Traverse towing capacity. Here’s how:

  • With front- or all-wheel drive, the Chevy Traverse L, LS, LT Cloth, LT Leather, and RS can tow 1,500 pounds. The Premier trim with front-wheel drive also maxes out at 1,500 pounds.
  • In order to up the Chevrolet Traverse towing ability to 5,000 pounds, you will need to upgrade to the Premier trim with all-wheel drive, or the High Country with either front- or all-wheel drive.

Exploring the Traverse Cargo Space

It’s probably not every day that you’ll be trailering around Quincy. Here’s a quick rundown of the cavernous Traverse cargo area dimensions:

  • Cargo Volume Behind 1st Row: 98.2 cubic feet maximum
  • Cargo Volume Behind 2nd Row: 57.80 cubic feet maximum
  • Cargo Volume Behind 3rd Row: 23.0 cubic feet maximum

Clever Storage Features

When you’re just about ready to hit the road on a much needed weekend getaway, things can get pretty hectic. Thankfully, the new Traverse is equipped with a few cargo management features that make it easier to get organized during those last steps between the front door and the trunk of your SUV:

  • Hands-Free Liftgate: When your hands are full, a simple kicking motion signals your liftgate to open automatically.
  • Hidden Storage: Concealed from view, under-floor storage acts as a convenient place to stow last-minute gear additions or put your valuables in a safe spot when you’re out and about in Havana.

It’s features like these that have earned the 2020 Traverse such high praise from industry reviewers.
