New 2016 Chevrolet Traverse at The Chevy Source for Long Island, NY

The 2016 Chevrolet Traverse is a large crossover that's nearly as roomy as the truck-based Chevy Tahoe and Suburban SUVs, but it offers friendlier driving traits thanks to its car-type platform. The Traverse remains one of the most spacious, passenger-friendly vehicles on the market, and it's a great choice for those who have disowned minivans. The Traverse's primary mission is people-moving, so GM has made the most of the seating space. Over three rows, there's space for up to eight occupants, with the seats divided into two front buckets and two 60/40-split benches. Bench or captain's chair arrangements are offered in the second row; we'd opt for the bench as the individual seats aren't much more comfortable.

Under the Traverse's Hood

Under The Traverse is a family vehicle at its core, and it performs well enough for that use. However, with a 5,000-pound curb weight, we wouldn't call it agile or quick, though it does have a more car-like ride than GM's full-size truck-type SUVs. Both front- and all-wheel-drive configurations are available. The Traverse feels quick enough for its intended family-hauling purpose, but we've noticed that AWD versions do sap a little more power from the experience. The engine is a smooth, direct-injected 3.6-liter V-6. It needs to work hard up highway grades or from a standing start. Towing capacity tops out at 5,200 pounds with front-drive.

Design of Chevrolet Traverse

The Traverse is essentially a tall, family-friendly station wagon. The design has seen very little change since its original introduction in 2009, despite a minor facelift for the 2013 model year. Compared to its cousins, the GMC Acadia and Buick Enclave, the Traverse has neither the edgier design flair of the GMC nor the retro-curvy hints of the Buick Enclave. The Traverse features the three-bar upper grille and two-bar lower design that is common to Chevrolet crossovers. Darkened headlights and a sculpted hood round out the front end. In back, it has taillamps that look a bit like those on the Camaro muscle car. Some bits chrome and brightwork give it some punch from certain angles.
