Chevrolet Traverse High Country

2020 Chevrolet Traverse

Pros: Generous passenger and cargo room; expansive list of available safety features; easy access to third-row seat

Cons: Large size can make close-quarters maneuverability difficult; some desirable safety features are restricted to pricey trim levels

CG Says: The 2020 Chevrolet Traverse gets a new infotainment system and the turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine in the front-wheel-drive RS model has been dropped. The topline High Country is now available with front-wheel drive, previously High Country was all-wheel drive only. The Chevrolet Traverse is a large, midsize crossover SUV with three rows of seats that can carry up to eight passengers. Traverse was redesigned for 2018. Available features include rearview camera mirror, LED headlights with automatic high beams, and hands-free power liftgate. Available safety features include autonomous emergency braking, 360-degree surround-vision camera, lane-keep assist with lane-departure warning, front pedestrian braking, GM’s Teen Driver monitoring system, and a rear-seat reminder feature. All models have a 310-horsepower 3.6-liter V6 paired with a 9-speed automatic transmission. The sporty RS model has blacked out trim, black 20-inch wheels, and other unique features. Topping out the Traverse lineup is the High Country with standard leather and suede upholstery, power-folding third-row seats, and other upscale features. The Traverse is among the biggest of the midsize crossover SUVs—it offers interior room that rivals some large SUVs. For buyers looking for a roomy SUV with a comprehensive list of safety and convenience features, the Chevrolet Traverse is a must-see.
