About Chevrolet Traverse

With its 3-row seating, spacious cargo bay and handsome styling, Chevrolet’s 2017 Traverse crossover SUV makes an ideal family vehicle. Although it lacks more advanced driver-assist systems found on the Honda Pilot and Ford Explorer, the Traverse is still safe, competent and desirable. Mimicking the ride height and family-hauling abilities of the larger Tahoe SUV, the Traverse outmaneuvers its sibling with a more sedan-like ride and better handling. Although the V6-powered Traverse crossover SUV can’t haul or pull like a Tahoe can, it can tow up to 5,200 pounds. Not as fresh or fuel-efficient as some newer competitors, the Traverse still offers such desirable features as 7- or 8-passenger seating, a big cargo hold behind the 3rd-row seat and an exceptionally quiet cabin.
