Bring the whole family along, wherever you may be going. Chevrolet says that the Traverse is a mid-size SUV that brings drivers all of the amenities you could want in a vehicle, and some you wouldn’t expect. With seating for up to 8 and class-leading 116.3 cu. ft. of maximum cargo room you have space for everyone and everything. Ride comfortably in a refined interior, and with added technology features like Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning, you not only ride in style, you ride safely. The Traverse comes in eight different model choices to better suit you.

The Traverse starts out with many bold and exciting colors like tungsten metallic or champagne silver metallic. Clean lines start at the front grille,  move to the chrome beltline molding and wrap all the way around to the smartly designed rear lift gate. The lift gate will open with just a push of a button for when your hands are to full to open it up. The Traverse leads through the streets with an athletic hood design and striking headlamps.

Chevy made the inside of the Traverse feel like luxury. Once you enter the vehicle you are hit with refined materials and available ambient lighting. New to the 2013 model, you will never be short on cup holders with a total of 12 in the vehicle. You can comfortable seat up to eight passengers to go wherever whenever. No matter if it is the dead of summer or the middle of winter, you will always be content with the heated and cooled leather-appointed seats. With all of the cargo space, the smart slide second-row seating and split folding rear seating makes it easy to access all of your cargo.

Keep the peace by amusing the kids with the available rear-seat DVD player and music. With the front seat USB port the ability to stream Pandora Internet Radio, Stitcher SmartRadio, or SiriusXM Satellite Radiois always within reach. Connect with available Bluetooth wireless technology or the USB port to sync your smartphone or other compatible device. And you can access your favorite music and media using touch controls or voice commands. With two additional USB ports in the rear of the center console, there are plenty of places to charge compatible devices. The Traverse also offers Chevrolet MyLink with the standard 6.5-inch color touch-screen. MyLink allows you to access traffic, entertainment, and navigation with ease.

Enjoy the freedom of fewer fill-ups with Traverse. An EPA-estimated 17 MPG city/24 highway for FWD models offers up to 520 highway miles per tank. Plus, LS and LT models with a standard Direct Injected 3.6L V6 engine deliver 281 horsepower. Get a little more giddyup with dual exhaust in the LTZ model with 288 horsepower. Traverse offers the right amount of power to get you and your family going.

The 2013 Chevrolet Traverse starts out at a little under $31,000 for the LS FWD model, and gets up to about $43,000 for the LTZ AWD model.
