Last year Chevrolet totally redesigned a Traverse crossover SUV and tiny changes from final year’s remodel. It still has a many legroom of any of a competitors and a lighter form means improved performance. This year Chevrolet eked out a bit some-more horsepower from a customary six-cylinder engine and combined a turbocharged four-cylinder engine to a sport-styled RS.
The 2019 Chevrolet Traverse is permitted in 7 trim levels: L, LS, LT Cloth, LT Leather, RS, Premier, and High Country. The Premier Trim is a theme of this review.
With LED headlights, hands-free liftgate, wireless device charging, driver-seat memory, auto-dimming side mirros, and ventilated front seats, a Premium trim of a Traverse is a tip of a store (except for a High Country). It’s got each bell and alarm we could wish even a 20-inch wheels and blacked-out grille of a sporty RS, though it still has a V6 engine. My indication also came with all-wheel drive.
All models come with Chevrolet’s record of OnStar communications with a 4G LTE tie and an onboard Wi-Fi hotspot, Chevy’s Teen Driver system, and a 8-inch MyLink touchscreen infotainment complement with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity.
The 3.6-liter V6 produces 310 horses and 266 lb-ft of torque. The engine is interconnected with a nine-speed involuntary transmission. Expect to get 17/city, 25/highway, and 20/combined mpg.
The interior of a Traverse is ample adequate for adults to lay in all 3 rows. So mostly a third quarrel is something that is only tangled in. There was some suspicion put into a chain of a seating in a Traverse. It’s even easy to entrance a third row, creation removing in and out child’s play.
Fit and finish are good and a core smoke-stack is simply permitted and elementary to use. There are copiousness of fill-in excess in a knobs and buttons to a 8-inch touchscreen.
This is a good road-trip car. The seating is gentle in all rows and with copiousness of space for stretching. The cabin is still with minimal highway sound so a Bose Premium 10-speaker sound complement shines. Bumps vast and tiny are smoothed out by a cessation and tires.
The Traverse is good to expostulate if not exciting. It has copiousness of low-end torque to get out of a approach of approaching traffic. The steering is accurate though not pointy and will get we by a misfortune of a breezy road. It drives like a people-mover it is, not sparkling though competent.
For families who have to pierce people or things with room and comfort, a 2019 Chevrolet Traverse should be on your list of possibilities.
