Hello! Bought a new 2020 Traverse LT cloth a few weeks ago. About 500 miles on it so far.

In the owners manual, pages 133-136 describe each page in the Driver Information Center (DIC), including a page for the transmission fluid temperature. I don't have this page in my DIC, and don't see the option to enable it in the options menu. The owners manual states that "Some (pages) may not be available for your vehicle".

Do any Gen2 Traverse owners have a transmission temperature page in their DIC?

Same here.....needs AWD with trailering package.........makes sense, towing is when a tranny temp gauge comes in handy.

I have the trailering package as well, listed as "trailering equipment" under options on the window sticker. Hitch receiver and 7pin connector are there, although I haven't hooked up a trailer to verify all the fuses and wiring are connected. Maybe it's something they changed in the 2020 MY? Any other 2020 MY owners with or without this page? I'll have to ask at the dealership if it is something they can reprogram or update to get that page to show up.

The default is off on the main page. It should be set to be activated and set to on in the Options page before it will show up as a page on the main page.

2020 LT AWD w/V92 Trailering package. Tyranny Temp is NOT available for a readout in the DIC. Dumb to take that away from those who pay for a Trailering package and really need that data.

In my HC they gave me a tilt angle screen, like I really need that.

When the manufacturers started to provide transmission temperature in a digital readout there were a great many panicked owners asking if there was a problem with their vehicles with the "high" ATF temperatures. Unless you are towing more than the maximum load for a vehicle and neglect to get a tow package with a ATF cooler, then the temperature is only going to be a problem if there is an ATF leak. The flash point for ATF is 350 degrees and even at this temperature tests have shown that there is no damage to the transmission with the correct ATF used.
