Large crossovers are all the rage right now, and the Chevrolet Traverse doesn’t disappoint in the least bit. One popular feature moms and dads won’t want to overlook is the foldable third-row seating, which can increase the interior cargo space to an impressive 116 cubic feet. Comfortably seat up to eight passengers at will, or stow all the luggage you need for that weekend getaway by folding the rear bench down. Three trim levels are offered LS, LT and LTZ, but the standard trim set is already loaded with plenty of features. 17” steel wheels, rails on the roof for extra storage (skis, bike, etc.), keyless entry, and an 8” MyLink infotainment interface with touchscreen and Bluetooth, dual-zone air conditioning (front and rear), backup camera and six-speaker audio system with USB and iPod inputs. This capable crossover is powered by a 3.6-liter V6 engine that makes 281 horsepower at 266 pound-feet of torque with an estimated 19 mpg in the city and a six-speed auto-manual transmission. An all-around crossover with plenty of room, just make sure you upgrade the warranty from the standard 3-year/36,000 miles offered by Chevrolet to really protect your investment.
