Chevrolet Traverse
Chevrolet Traverse 2018 4-door SUV Trim Shown: 2018 LT 4-door SUV AWD Automatic

The all-new 2018 Chevrolet Traverse rides on a longer wheelbase than the outgoing model, creating more rear passenger space. It’s based on the same platform as the new GMC Acadia but is longer. Power comes from a choice of a turbocharged 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine or from 3.6-liter V6, each paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission. Standard Traction Mode Select allows drivers to make real-time adjustments, tailoring the vehicle’s performance for the road, or even off-road, conditions. For safety, it will offer a suite of advanced features, including forward-collision warning, low- and high-speed automatic braking, pedestrian detection and braking, and lane-departure warning with lane-keep assist. A teen driver system is standard, allowing parents to set certain restrictions and review driving performance. The new Traverse goes on sale this summer.

Chevrolet Traverse 2017 4-door SUV Trim Shown: 2017 LT 4-door SUV AWD Automatic

After almost a decade, the three-row Traverse is getting a redesign for 2018. It's based on the same platform as the new GMC Acadia but is longer. The current Traverse is showing its age: It has outdated controls and thirst for fuel, with 16 mpg overall. The Acadia we tested impressed, with a quiet interior; steady, composed ride; and responsive handling. The 3.6-liter V6 supplies ample power. The infotainment system is comprehensive and intuitive. Like the Acadia, the new Traverse will have a rear-seat minder to ensure that no infants are left behind. Maximum seating capacity is eight, but most versions will be seven-passenger configurations with second-row captain chairs. The new Traverse goes on sale in the summer.

2009 Redesign Year
Chevrolet Traverse 2016 Trim Shown: 2016 LTZ

The Traverse, introduced for 2009, is one of GM's impressive large, car-based, three-row SUVs. You'll find a spacious and quiet interior with a third-row seat roomy enough to accommodate adults. Seating for seven or eight is available. Handling is responsive -- especially given the Traverse's size -- and the ride is comfortable. Rear visibility isn't great, but clever extra mirrors reduce side blind spots. The smooth 3.6-liter V6 returned 16 mpg in our tests. It's mated to a six-speed automatic that sometimes hesitated to downshift; later versions have better transmission programming. A minor freshening for 2013 brought an improved infotainment system and a standard front-center airbag.
