2012 Chevy Traverse LT 2LT SUV

2012 Chevrolet Traverse Review

(0 Stars)  A roomy, capable, and reasonably priced alternative to less economical truck-based sport-utes.

Overview
In both size and capability, the Traverse bridges the gap between the Tahoe and the Equinox. It has a standard split-folding third row -- only suitable for children or small adults -- and, when fitted with the second-row bench, can seat up to eight people. A second row with captain's chairs divided by a storage bin drops seating to seven. In terms of capability, the Traverse will likely satisfy the needs of most people. One area where the Traverse comes up short in comparison with the larger body-on-frame Tahoe and Suburban is in towing, but for most people the more fuel-efficient Traverse is the better bet and nicer to drive as well. It is available with the same amenities as those big SUVs, such as a power liftgate, a rearview camera, a Bose stereo, and navigation, plus it can be similarly dressed up with optional eighteen- or twenty-inch wheels or chrome dual-exhaust pipes. The dual exhaust has the added benefit of increasing the output of the 3.6-liter V-6 to 288 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque. The Traverse's cabin has the same dual-cockpit layout as the smaller Equinox, with a sweeping dash, rich material color choices, and cool blue accent lighting. Its siblings, the GMC Acadia and the Buick Enclave, are trimmed in nicer materials and have more stylized exteriors, but the Traverse undercuts the prices of those vehicles by thousands of dollars with comparable standard equipment. Even when compared with fresher competitors, such as the Ford Explorer or the Honda Pilot, the Traverse holds up well in terms of style, quality, and value.
