2012 Chevrolet Traverse Explored
Read more at http://www.7seatercarsguide.com/2011/7-seater-cars/what-will-the-2012-chevr olet-traverse-have-to-offer/ The 2012 edition of the Chevrolet Traverse is being rolled out. This is a crossover SUV that is made with some of the best fuel standards around and works with a third row of seats that is easy for anyone to manage. It has become one of the most notable 7 seat SUVs around and has become so popular that it can be found today in various trims. Read about the Chevrolet Traverse 2011 first!. A key about the 2012 Chevy Traverse is that it features a number of points that are similar to what it has had in the past but it will have a few changes that still make it impressive. Meanwhile, this is expected to be the last of the current Traverse models. A full redesign of Chevy Traverse is expected for 2013. It is not clear as to what the new version will have but the current 2012 version will be a good chance for anyone to pick up one of the top SUVs that seat seven. The Engine Works Right The engine that is being used for this 2012 7 seat car is the same that was used in the 2011 edition of the Traverse. It is a 3.6L V6 engine. It works to get the standard 17/24 mpg rating that was found in the previous model, thus creating something that is a little easier to manage when compared with other vehicles. These include things like the Toyota Highlander, a vehicle that is similar to the Traverse but only gets a 15/22 mpg rating. This engine works with an all wheel drive function. A six speed automatic transmission is also used here. This works with one of the smoothest acceleration procedures around, thus providing anyone with the most effective driving functions around. The suspension is also completely independent from other functions around the vehicle. This is used to create a better ride that is easier to manage. The Interior is Useful The dimensions in the Traverse are around the same as what the 2011 model used. The car has 36.8 inches of leg room in the second row and 33.2 inches in the third row. There is also about sixty inches of shoulder room in every row around the car. The third row can especially be useful not only because it has cup holders but also because it works alongside a second row that is easy to manage. The second row uses a Smart Slide seat that is easy to move around. It can be slid forward with a single motion to help create plenty of space and to make it so people can get in and out of the car as easily as possible. The fact that the second and third row seats can be laid down flat helps as well. In fact, the 2012 Chevrolet Traverse offers around 120 cubic feet of cargo space. This is much greater than what other 7 seat cars have, particularly the Ford Explorer with its 80 cubic feet of cargo space. This works with a few different features that make the car more beneficial. First, the vehicle has air bags on varying points. These include rear body and curtain air bags. There are six total air bags around the vehicle. Read more at http://www.7seatercarsguide.com/2011/7-seater-cars/what-will-the-2012-chevr olet-traverse-have-to-offer/

2013 Dodge Durango vs Chevy Traverse Muddy Off-Road Mashup Review (Part 2)

The Dodge Durango is a butch and brawny AWD Crossover based on a stretched Jeep Grand platform while the brand new Chevrolet Traverse is one of Chevy's best selling family haulers.

Chevrolet Traverse Review 2014 [AUTO TV] HD
The 2014 Chevrolet Traverse is a spacious, comfortable, and reasonably responsive family vehicle that's not a minivan. Yes, charm still might be something that's a little lacking in the 2014 Chevrolet Traverse; but that's really beside the point. The Chevy Traverse is essentially a vehicle designed and engineered to those who just a few years ago might have found themselves bewildered at the lack of large family vehicles. Although it might build on some of the styling cues of GM SUVs, the Traverse is essentially a tall station wagon. For today's biggest families, who are concerned about image and features, yet also space, comfort, and safety, the Traverse adds up to a very smart pick. The design of the Traverse has seen very little change since its original introduction in 2009; last year it was given a minor touch-up in the front and rear, although it's far from what GM termed "an athletic new exterior design." Although the face is a bit fresher, we're more attracted to the Camaro-influenced taillamps, which break through a factory-farm of same-as crossover designs. Inside, the Traverse is nothing exciting, but it's very functional, and last year's refresh brought a few new wood and silver accents, some contrast stitching, and ambient lighting. Last year Chevy also reconfigured the climate controls for 2013 and brought in more soft-touch materials. Don't expect the 2014 Traverse to feel all that quick or agile, but it's quick enough for family use. At about 5,000 pounds, the Traverse is a very heavy vehicle, and it does little from behind the wheel to mask that. The smooth 3.6-liter direct-injection V-6 rated at 288 horsepower and 270 pound-feet, and has been programmed for more confident passing power and quicker shifts; yet this is still a combination that needs to work hard up highway grades or from a standing start. That said, it can tow up to 5,200 pounds. You can get either front- or all-wheel-drive configurations of the Traverse, but AWD versions are a little more sluggish. If you're one who's disowned minivans in the past and wouldn't bow to that image again, the Chevrolet Traverse remains one of the most spacious, passenger-friendly vehicles on the market. The Traverse's primary mission is people-moving, so GM has made the most of the seating space here. Over three rows, there's space for up to eight occupants, with the seats divided into two front buckets and two 60/40-split benches. Bench or captain's chairs arrangements are offered in the second row, and we'd opt for the bench as the individual seats aren't much more comfortable. There's one weakness of the Traverse versus minivans: Its cargo floor is a bit high and not as easy-loading, although folding the second and third rows down yields 117.5 cubic feet. The Traverse has earned some of the best crash-test scores of any vehicle sold in the U.S., and together with the closely related Buick Enclave and GMC Acadia, it's one of the first vehicles on the market to offer a front center side airbag. Otherwise, standard safety features include parking sensors, a rearview camera system, hill start assist (to help you start safety on a steep incline), and head-curtain side bags with rollover mitigation technology. On LTZ models, the Traverse includes Side Blind Zone Alert, Forward Collision Alert, Lane Departure Warning, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert—all features that may help you avoid an accident completely. Three trim levels of the 2014 Traverse are offered: LS, LT, and LTZ. Top LTZ models are really luxury models if you go by features, while LS trims are no-fuss (albeit well-equipped) family vehicles. All Traverse models get the Chevrolet MyLink system, which includes a 6.5-inch color touch screen, enabling smartphone integration as well as easy streaming of Pandora and Stitcher internet-based entertainment.
