Driving Impression

Abundant power from the sizable V-6 engine enhances the pleasure of piloting a Traverse, assisted by a smooth-shifting 9-speed automatic transmission. Upshifts arrive rapidly, and the 9-speed downshifts readily when extra oomph is needed to pass or merge.

Well-known in other GM models, the 3.6-liter V-6 delivers ample energy through a broad range of the engine’s powerband, which boosts performance potential. Making a V-6 version of the RS available suggests the eventual demise of turbo-4 power.

One prominent drawback is the optional all-wheel-drive system, which functions too much like an AWD setup from the past.

Like other large family carriers, the Traverse tends to steer and handle like a big family sedan, with pitching motions and lean in corners. However, the Traverse tracks well on the highway.

Fuel economy falls close to the norm for its class. With V-6 and all-wheel drive, the Traverse is EPA-rated at 17/25 mpg City/Highway, or 20 mpg Combined. Front-wheel-drive raises the estimate to 18/27/21 mpg. The turbo-four manages 20/26/22 mpg.

Walk Around

Despite adoption of design themes from Chevrolet’s truck division as part of its 2018 redesign, the current-generation Traverse looks sharp while providing a family-focused experience. Relationships to full-size pickups and SUVs aren’t difficult to spot. Previously graceful body lines have been sharpened.

More upright than the previous-generation model, the Traverse leads off with a taller grille, encompassing a larger “bowtie” badge. Strong shoulder lines lead toward slender taillights, carrying the overall boxy profile all the way through the bodysides.

Interior Overview

Bountiful cabin space is a strong point of the Traverse, which promises adult-level comfort in any of the three seating rows. Even the third row offers abundant room, though elbow room is on the scant side.

Smart controls and a wide console should impress the driver, and everybody might admire the soft-touch surfaces and durable plastic materials.

Front seats promise long-distance comfort, even for occupants who are ample in girth. Second-row captain’s chairs are particularly appealing. Second-row passengers face more than 38 inches of leg clearance, while rear-seat riders get 33 inches.

Wide-swinging doors ease entry and exit, though they can present a challenge in tight parking lots. Fit and finish generally are good, though Buick’s Enclave has a more premium feel. Most Traverse versions have active noise cancellation.

Behind the third row, there’s a generous 23 cubic feet of cargo room. With the third row flattened, that space passes 58 cubic feet, reaching 98 cubic feet with only the front seatbacks upright.

Summary

“”

Aiming strictly at families, including large ones, the Traverse is nicely equipped, at least in LT trim and above, though lack of automatic emergency braking earns a demerit. Base L models are seldom seen at dealerships. Topping the lineup, High Country editions push this model beyond the mainstream, but at a price. Options abound, but they push total cost upward in a hurry.
