CG Says: The 2021 Chevrolet Traverse is unchanged. 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 and is expected to get a refresh for 2022. 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.
