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.

2009 Chevrolet Traverse Review - Kelley Blue Book
Although the once-thriving SUV business is in a sales downturn, GM is
keenly aware that many Americans still have a need for seven-passenger
transportation. With this in mind, GM has created a new line of crossover
SUVs offering maximum interior space, mid-level towing capability and fuel
economy numbers that reach into the mid-twenties. The latest iteration of
this well-conceived platform is the 2009 Chevrolet Traverse, a vehicle that
combines contemporary styling, one of the best accident-avoidance systems
in the business and an interior worthy of a high-end luxury car - all at a
Chevrolet price. For more new car reviews, interviews and automotive news
