Chevrolet Traverse 2LT FWD
Chevrolet Traverse 2LT FWD
  • Base price: $36,580
  • Gas mileage:
    • City - 17 mpg
    • Highway - 24 mpg

Convenience and safety are the Traverse's key attributes. When decked out in its 2LT trim, it comes with a power rear liftgate, rear parking sensors and a backup camera. Every Traverse gets a new front center air bag, bringing the total air bag count to six.

Structurally unchanged for 2013, the 2012 Traverse received the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's highest crash-test scores.

With flexible seating that can accommodate up to eight, interior space is generous and usable. Access to the adult-friendly third row is made easy by a Smart Slide second-row seat that powers out of the way with one hand.

A 288-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6 provides the go. Other standard features include three-zone climate control, Bluetooth connectivity, 10-speaker Bose audio system with smartphone integration and full power accessories.
