Chevy Crossover Trailering Guide
The crossover body style offers a unique combination of features and characteristics, including a car-like demeanor and easy driving behind the wheel, as well as expanded practicality, passenger space, and storage. As such, some customers choose to tow with their crossover. With that in mind, we’re taking a closer look at the towing capacities for the 2022 Chevy crossover model lineup.

The Chevy crossover model with the highest max trailer weight rating is the Chevy Traverse when equipped with the optional Trailering Equipment Package (RPO code V92), which is rated at 5,000 pounds. To note, the Chevy Traverse is equipped with the naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LFY gasoline engine, rated at 310 horsepower at 6,800 rpm and 266 pound-feet of torque at 2,800 rpm, mated to the GM 9-speed automatic transmission and either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive.
To note, the V92 Trailering Equipment Package is also available on the Chevy Blazer and Chevy Trailblazer, and includes things like hitch guidance and a heavy-duty cooling system.
The Chevy crossover with the lowest towing capacity rating is the 2022 Chevy Trailblazer with the turbocharged 1.3L I3 L3T gasoline engine as well as the V92 Trailering Provisions and PDE Trailering Packages, rated at 1,000 pounds. The turbocharged 1.3L I3 L3T gasoline engine is rated at 155 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and 174 pound-feet of torque at 1,600 rpm.
t’s also worth noting that several of the 2022 Chevy crossover models are not recommended for towing at all, with owner’s manuals explicitly stating “Never tow a trailer with your vehicle. It was not designed or intended to tow a trailer.” The models not recommended for any towing whatsoever include the Chevy Bolt EV, Chevy Bolt EUV, Chevy Trailblazer models without AWD and the Trailering Packages, and the Chevy Trax.
