2009 model year changes
The Chevrolet Traverse is an all-new model in Chevrolet's lineup, an alternative to traditional sport-utility vehicles that offers the handling and ride comfort of a car and some of the interior convenience and roominess of a minivan. While the Traverse is new to Chevrolet for 2009, it's closely related to the previously introduced Buick Enclave, GMC Acadia and Saturn Outlook.

Special features for 2009
The Traverse is a good alternative to traditional truck-based sport-utility vehicles like Chevrolet's own Trailblazer and Tahoe. Even though it's about the same size as those vehicles on the outside, it's more passenger-friendly, comfortable and fuel-efficient. At 205 inches long, the Traverse is somewhat larger than many crossover rivals like the Ford Edge or Toyota Highlander and may be a better choice for those who need extra space inside. While the Traverse spans a wide price range, with loaded LTZ models topping $45,000, the base LS is an especially strong value at under $30,000, especially considering the wealth of safety features. The Traverse stands out as one of few vehicles to get top ratings in all major crash tests, suggesting it's one of the safest vehicles at any price and an ideal family choice.
