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.

About Chevrolet Traverse

As fuel prices fluctuate and more people downsize, a stream of buyers are shying away from thirsty, truck-based SUVs as the family hauler of choice. This has spawned a hot market for crossover sport-utility vehicles, which have room for growing families like a traditional SUV, but offer a sedan-like ride and better fuel-efficiency. The poster child for this segment could easily be the Chevrolet Traverse. Since debuting in 2009, the Traverse has shined as an alternative to both traditional SUVs and the oft-stigmatized minivan. Since then, vehicles such as the Ford Explorer and Nissan Pathfinder have softened from their rugged ways to join the crossover-SUV party that also includes the Honda Pilot, Toyota Highlander and Mazda CX-9. Though the cast grows, the Traverse more than holds its own.

"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."

"I love the way it drives and rides. I can fit all 3 of my kids into the car a long with my 120 lbs dog. We use my car for every thing. With in the first 4 days of owning it we went on a 2800 (to and from) trip across the states. It has more than enough up holders. We love how all the windows go all the way down. The duel heat controls are really nice. The kids can pick the temp they want and I can pick mine. The only thing I wish it had more of is, STORAGE! With as much as we travel it would be nice. I am not talking just a 2 hour road trip. Family live out of state and we go to see them once a year. The one storage compartment is really small."

"Purchased 2011 Traverse LT2 in Nov 2010. Great vehicle, lots of room, drives like a sports car, does not feel large. Minor con of slight rollback on hills. Mobil 1 synthetic from day one. After two years the interior (black cloth) was close to perfect. Exterior spotless. Knowing we loved this platform I just upgraded to a 2013 LT2, mojave leather, dual sunroof, trailer package will be long term vehicle"
