2012 Chevrolet Traverse Review

Inside outside and under the hood Traverse is a vehicle designed to exceed expectations. To work with you. It all starts with seven or eight passenger seating. In other words there’s room for everyone. And Traverse has the capability to handle a lot of gear when you need to with class leading maximum cargo space. Get the kids to school or Traverse up the mountain with the available All Wheel Drive. It features a 3.6 liter V6 direct-injection engine with automatic transmission and has better fuel economy than any 8-passenger crossover on the road. It’s no secret that every life is different. And a must have feature for one person might be an extra to someone else. With three distinct trims Traverse has the ability to deliver the extras that are most important to you. Safety before. Safety during. And thanks to Onstar safety after. That is the mindset in the design of the Traverse as you can see by the long list of standard and available safety features. On top of that is the best coverage in America. Chevrolet’s 100 00 mile five year fully transferable warranty. Take a look for yourself how the 2012 Chevrolet Traverse can handle just about all of your needs.
