While closely related to the Saturn Outlook, GMC Acadia and Buick Enclave, the Traverse puts Chevrolet's own spin on the popular platform and represents the company's first foray into the full-size crossover segment. GM's most visible brand hopes to draw in loyalists as well as new customers looking for that unique Chevrolet combination of affordability, reliability and sportiness.
As what's dubbed a "crossover SUV," the 2015 Chevrolet Traverse blends the roominess and high-riding outward visibility of a traditional SUV with the compliant road manners of a large sedan. Such vehicles have struck a chord with individuals and families who crave a vehicle with road presence, but who don't need the off-road ability, heavy towing capability, or dent in their gasoline budget that usually accompanies big, truck-based SUVs. For others, the 7- or 8-passenger capacity of the Traverse is far more appealing than a minivan. Originally introduced in 2009, the Chevy Traverse still offers a lot of vehicle for the money, but is starting to show its age amid fresher 3-row competitors like the Toyota Highlander, Nissan Pathfinder and Kia Sorento.View Chevrolet Traverse vehicles for sale near you.

"I love my 2011 Traverse! It's big and roomy inside but isn't too big to park and drive. I can see this vehicle meeting and exceeding all our family needs as we grow. The 3rd row seats are comfortable and allow plenty of room for an adult or children. AWD does wondefully in snow, slush, and ice! It's a GREAT vechile! I recommed it to everyone that is looking for a SUV/Van."

"This is my 2nd Traverse. First one was totaled in a head on crash (intoxicated wrong way). My wife walked away with some cuts and bruises. Impact was severe with the front end totally destroyed, yet the cabin was intact (all air bags deployed). As soon as my wife recovered,we were back to the dealership to get a new one. This is a big vehicle with all the expected comforts. We have 2 kids and I would not take chances with any other vehicle. Mileage is OK... as long as you keep it light on the gas pedal and remain on cruise control. most we got was 24.5 mpg on a 400 mile trip. If you downshift a lot, expect 15 mpg."

"The only problem with this car are the rear side windows. You cannot see behind you or beside you unless you use your side view mirrors and have a rear vision camera. The car is very big and needs a big parking space. Other than that it is a great car!"
