The Chevrolet Traverse can hold up to eight occupants
in comfort and style. The front seats are captain’s chairs with power adjustments that include height and lumbar support. The second row of seating is split-folding, with a center armrest and can recline. The third row of seating is manually foldable with a split-bench.
There is rear ventilation with its own fan control. Customers on Edmund’s web page have commented on the “most comfortable ride that they have taken.” Side rails make it easier for shorter adults and children to enter and exit the car without difficulty. The cloth seats can be upgraded to leather, if you desire. According to newcars.com
, the Traverse is roomier and can hold more cargo than the Dodge Durango.
The Chevy Traverse’s instrument panel comes equipped with a clock, trip odometer, low fuel warning, tachometer and compass. The SUV has many conveniences that make traveling a pleasure. Do you have freezing mornings where you really hate to get into a cold car? Worry no more, as the Traverse has a remote start, a keyless door entry and one-touch power windows. The backup camera is attached to the rear view mirror and is standard on the Traverse, but optional on the Dodge Durango. The Traverse also comes with a USB port, Bluetooth phone connectivity and a touch screen navigation system.
The Traverse has a 3.6 liter V6 engine that is standard on all models. Despite weighing in at a very sturdy almost 5,000 pounds, fuel consumption is good with 17 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway. There are standard ABS and disc brakes. Besides the standard airbags, the Traverse also has one between the driver and the other front seat passenger. Optional equipment options include a back-seat entertainment center, lane departure warning and forward collision warning, which are all excellent additions to this SUV. The Traverse has been given a 5 star rating from the NHTSA Bureau
The Chevy Traverse has been given an all new look on the outside. The front end has a newer appearance, somewhat like the stylish Chevy Malibu while the taillights are reminiscent of a Chevy Camaro
The warranty coverage is the same for most of the SUVs that we tested but the Traverse bests the competition by including a 2-year/24,000 mile scheduled maintenance agreement.
