Vehicle Overview

"The Traverse is an excellent vehicle. Roomy, good milage and a comfortable ride make this a winner. We purchased a 2010 with leather and a Silverado at the same time. Both vehicles ride smooth and have good acceleration."
For 2009, Chevrolet got its own version of GM's popular three-row crossover. It's called the Traverse, and it offers distinctive styling and a purportedly sportier driving experience than its GMC Acadia and Buick Enclave siblings. Competitors include the Toyota Highlander, Mazda CX-9 and Hyundai Veracruz.
Under the Traverse's hood is a 3.6-liter V-6 with direct fuel injection to achieve slightly better power and gas mileage than the engines in the Acadia and Enclave. Three-row curtain airbags and an electronic stability system are standard, and all-wheel drive is optional.
The Traverse comes in LS, LT and LTZ trim levels.

Interior
Great interior and styling. Does what I bought it for, hauling people and cargo. It has a very good power and the handling is great. Parking is much easier than I expected. The proximity warning system is a great help when backing up.FYI I have had no problems merging into traffic on busy interstates and highwaysLike its siblings, the Traverse's interior has bright gauges and plenty of beveled plastics. The door handles reside on their own raised cutouts, and the dashboard stacks contrasting materials atop one another. Parking assistance comes in the form of rear proximity sensors or a rearview backup camera.

  • A car designed with all the best of intentions, but falling short where ever it counts. The front of the car is designed so that you are unable to judge it's dimensions. In the rear they have pulled up the windows to ensure that the area that can not be judged as well and produce a maximum dead angle. The engine is fine unless you want to do a kick down on a free way entry than it will hesitate for multiple seconds about what your intentions are and the vehicle will slow down before it speeds up as you would expect. This provides for exiting times especially if you drive in places where you need to get on and off freeways a lot, like teh New York, New Jersey area
