KBB Expert Review

KBB Editors' Overview

By Matt Degen - Updated Date: 5/30/2014


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.

You'll Like This Car If...

If you want a big, 3-row crossover SUV that starts under $32,000, holds up to eight passengers, and has a standard V6 and that returns decent fuel economy, the 2015 Chevy Traverse remains a tempting family hauler.

You May Not Like This Car If...

The Traverse boasts much interior room, but its big size is also felt on the road and especially in parking lots. If you want something nimbler – not to mention fresher – try the recently revamped Toyota Highlander or Nissan Pathfinder. Need to tow more than 5,200 pounds? Look to the Chevy Tahoe.

What's New for 2015

Changes are minimal as the 2015 Traverse soldiers on. The most significant updates are Siri Eyes Free iPhone integration, a revised wheel appearance, and new exterior and interior color choices.

Driving It Driving Impressions

Even in the face of newer competition, the 2015 Chevy Traverse remains one of our favorite crossover SUVs to drive and live with. In fact, it was among our 12 Best Family Cars of 2014. Its 280-plus horsepower V6 is smooth and strong, and easily gets Chevy's big crossover SUV up to speed in both front-wheel-drive (FWD) and all-wheel-drive (AWD) form. The Traverse is larger than its competitors, and while it's not agile like a Mazda CX-9, it doesn't feel overwhelming on the highway. The view to the front and sides is commanding and the ride is comfortable. As with other 3-row SUVs, rear-side visibility is hindered by the last row of seats and small windows. When tested in a setting far from the Traverse's comfort zone – a track – this big crossover-ute felt planted during hard cornering and braking, even on slick pavement.

Favorite Features

SMART SLIDE 2ND-ROW SEAT
Getting into a 3rd-row seat can be a hassle, especially for less-than-limber adults. This feature makes reaching that last row easier with a one-hand operation that creates easy access.

ADDITIONAL USB INPUTS
Here's a feature that's largely forgotten about – right until you need it. When your kid's tablet or MP3 player runs out of juice, the dual USB power inputs in back can make the difference between tears and cheers.
