Benefits of Driving a 2013 Chevrolet Traverse Sport Utility Crossover

The Chevrolet Traverse starts at just over $31,000 and offers a lot of space and luxury for the price. Unlike the myriad of minivans available, the Traverse has bold SUV like styling without giving up too much interior volume. The interior space combines with a cushy ride, to make the Traverse a fairly pleasant place to spend time in. The vehicle strikes a very nice balance between these various attributes, making it a good value for families seeking comfortable transportation.

What's new for 2013?

The Chevrolet Traverse has been given a fairly thorough redesign for 2013. It arrives with attractive new styling inside and out. Cabin materials have been improved with lots of soft touch surfaces and a redesigned dashboard which now houses a 6.5-inch color LCD screen.

Model Strengths

  • Room for up to eight
  • attractive styling
  • upscale amenities
  • car-like handling
  • available all-wheel-drive

Model Review

The Chevy Traverse is powered by a 3.6L V6 Engine mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. The engine is good for 288 hp, giving the vehicle plenty of oomph for merging. Power is sent to either the front or to all four wheels with the $2,000 all-wheel-drive option.
