A Used Chevy Traverse Might Be the Perfect Crossover for Your Family
The 2017 Chevrolet Traverse is in stock now here at Chevrolet of Homewood; but if you’re looking for something a bit more affordable, a pre-owned Traverse could be just right. We always have a fine selection of used SUVs in stock here at Chevrolet of Homewood, so read on to find out some of the history of this family friendly three-row crossover utility vehicle.
The Traverse is an eight-passenger crossover utility vehicle that provides plenty of space for both seating and cargo. It debuted for the 2009 model year and not much has changed since its entrance into the midsize crossover arena. It’s worth noting that the Traverse is closely related to the GMC Acadia and Buick Enclave, but is the least expensive of these General Motors triplets.
Powertrain and Efficiency
The Chevrolet Traverse has always been powered by a 3.6L V6 engine that has made as much as 288 hp with available dual exhaust. Thanks to all that horsepower you can tow up to 5,200 pounds, when properly equipped. There’s even heavy duty trailering equipment available like a heavy duty cooling system. The Traverse has earned as much as 22 mpg highway when properly equipped. Both all-wheel drive and front wheel drive have been offered, while a six-speed automatic has been the only transmission available.
Safety and Security
Generally the Traverse has excelled in safety tests, achieving both Top Safety Pick and 5-Star overall crash test ratings depending on the year. The most recent models of the Traverse have been available with lane departure warning system, rearview camera, a side blind zone alert, forward collision alert, rear cross traffic alert, and a rear parking sensor.
