Edmunds.com and Parents Magazine have compiled a list of the top 10 Best Family Vehicles for 2015, and the 2015 Chevy Traverse made the cut. While Edmunds and Parents Magazine don’t break it down by rankings, they did name the Traverse as the only sport utility vehicle on the list. That’s right—no other sport utility vehicles even made the 10 Best Family Vehicles list. You can find the current 2015 Chevy Traverse right here at Chevrolet of Homewood.

Edmunds.com, the favorite car shopping website of Calumet City drivers, and Parents Magazine evaluated hundreds of vehicles in order to narrow down the list to only the top ten most family friendly vehicles on the road.

“The car is an extension of home for a family—the place where days are rehashed, on-the-go meals are eaten, and quality time is shared,” said Parents Editor Dana Points. “It’s important that parents feel comforted by their car’s safety features and performance and are confident on the road. This year’s list features a few trusted favorites and first-timers perfect for families looking to get the most out of their car.”

More information about the picks will appear in the July issue of Parents Magazine. The magazine went on to praise the Traverse for its 8-passenger capacity, and its space for 5 car seats. It also yields an impressive 17 mpg city/24 mpg highway rating from the EPA, and starts at an affordable $31,870 MSRP.

“For growing families, it’s a common challenge: finding a trusty, large, affordable vehicle that maneuvers like a midsize,” said Lawrence Ulrich for Parents Magazine. “The Traverse is your solution. It offers a robust V-6, confident handling, Grand Canyon space, and nice creature comforts (up to 12 cup holders, tilting second-row seats, lots of storage nooks).”

Ulrich also pointed out that the Traverse offers an industry first front center air bag that helps protect passengers against side impact collision injuries. The Traverse is also available with high tech safety features like blind spot monitoring, lane departure, forward collision, and rear cross-traffic monitoring, and more.
