2011 Chevrolet Traverse Review

(3 Stars)  A modern, efficient Kingswood Estate

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Overview
The new Chevrolet Traverse is really turning some heads in the auto industry. Auto Week was recently quoted saying "Traverse….quite simply is one of the best vehicles – not just crossovers – on the market today." This says a lot about this new model from Chevy and this is only the second year that the Traverse has been available. This vehicle only gets 24 MPG on the highway and this may be the only bad thing to say about it, however for its size that is still respectable. Competing with some other very well equipped adversaries, the Chevrolet Traverse still is among the top in its class.

This vehicle offer over 116 cubic foot of cargo space when the seats are folded down and seats 7 passengers, when you think of it like that the 24 MPG is pretty impressive. Coming with a 6 cylinder engine that produces 301 horsepower standard, the Traverse is ready to pull quite a load before it even thinks about slowing down.
