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/

2010 Chevrolet Traverse LT AWD for Sale at Crotty Chevrolet Buick Corry PA
http://www.CrottyChevy.com 2010 Chevrolet Traverse All Wheel Drive is for sale at Crotty Chevrolet Buick in Corry, PA. This GM Certified Pre Owned Buic sedan comes with a 12-Month 12,000 Mile Bumper to Bumper factory backed warranty. Other features of the GM Certified Pre Owned Program are; • 5-Year/100,000-Mile GM Powertrain Warranty (from original in service date) • 2-Years of Free Maintaince • 172-Point Inspection Process • 3-Day/150-Mile Satisfaction Guarantee • Carfax Vehicle History Report • 24 Hour Roadside Assistance Coverage These are just a few of the features of the GM Certified Used Program. Filling the breach is the large crossover SUV, a vehicle that combines nearly the same amount of family-focused functionality and car-based dynamics of a minivan with the ruggedly sporty appearance and personality of an SUV. And in this segment, the 2010 Chevrolet Traverse is one of the better vehicles for providing plenty of space, comfort and performance for an attractive price. Traverse boasts greater amounts of passenger and cargo space than a traditional large SUV while also delivering a more pleasant, carlike driving experience and superior fuel economy. Though it's the entry-level Lambda, the Traverse doesn't necessarily look it. It shares some handsome styling cues with the well-received Malibu -- such as the split mesh grille outside and the dual-cockpit dash theme inside -- and generally makes a convincing argument for itself. The 2010 Chevrolet Traverse LT is a large crossover SUV Standard equipment on the LT includes, eight-passenger seating, split-folding second- and third-row bench seats, a tilt-telescoping steering wheel, air-conditioning, full power accessories, and a six-speaker CD/MP3 player with an auxiliary audio jack and satellite radio. The well-equipped LT offers 18-inch alloy wheels, heated sideview mirrors, an eight-way power driver seat, a trip computer, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and rear parking sensors. There is only one engine/transmission combination available for the Chevrolet Traverse -- a 3.6-liter V6 mated to a six-speed automatic with manual shift control. The V6 produces 281 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque. EPA fuel economy estimates for All-wheel-drive Traverse model are 23 MPG highway. Antilock disc brakes, traction and stability control, front seat side-impact airbags and side curtain airbags for all three rows are all standard on the 2010 Chevrolet Traverse,. In both frontal- and side-impact crash tests performed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the Traverse received a perfect five-star rating for its protection of occupants in head-on and side-impact collisions. The Traverse also aced the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety crash tests, where it got the highest rating of "Good" in both the frontal-offset and side-impact tests. Inside the Traverse's roomy cabin is an attractive layout in a two-tone color scheme with brushed aluminum and chrome trim. The instrument panel consists of dual gauges featuring bright white numbers on a black background that are simple and easy to read. Minor complaints include a few lower-grade interior plastics and audio and climate controls that consist of too many small and similar-looking button. Traverse seats eight (split-folding second-row bench seat) passengers in three rows. The first- and second-row seats are quite comfortable and supportive, and the split-folding third-row seat -- which is often a kids-only zone in traditional SUVs -- can accommodate adults in reasonable comfort. Maximum cargo capacity is a generous 117 cubic feet with the second- and third-row seats folded down, and even with all three rows of seating in use, there are still a useful 24 cubic feet of luggage space. Like the other three large General Motors crossovers, the 2010 Chevrolet Traverse hits a happy medium between secure handling and a comfortable ride. We have no complaints about the 3.6-liter V6, as it provides peppy acceleration in almost all situations.

Road Test: 2013 Chevrolet Traverse/Buick Enclave/GMC Acadia

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.
