With space for up to eight passengers, the Chevrolet Traverse was designed with the family in mind. And for 2013, a bevy of modifications have been implemented to keep the three-row crossover SUV fresh, including an updated exterior and interior, suspension changes intended to improve ride quality and handling, and a newly available MyLink infotainment center display. The second row can be equipped with a pair of captain's chairs (7-passenger) or a three-seat bench (8-passenger). Cargo volume ranges from 24.4 to 116.3 cubic feet, depending on how many rows of seats are folded. Up to seven airbags can deploy in the event of an accident, and Chevy claims the Traverse's front center airbag is an industry exclusive. Standard features include a rearview camera, stability control, and up to 5200 pounds of towing capacity. A 3.6-liter V-6 offering 281 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque (288 hp and 270 lb-ft courtesy of the top-of-the-line LTZ's dual exhaust) sends power through a 6-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is the norm but all-wheel drive can be selected. The EPA rates the FWD Traverse at 17/24 mpg city/highway, while the AWD version pulls off 16/23. The Chevrolet Traverse is covered by a 3-year/36,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty.
