Pros

Room for up to eight; attractive styling; upscale amenities; car-like handling; available all-wheel-drive


Value Writeup

The Chevrolet Traverse starts at just about $31,000 and offers a lot of space and luxury for the price. Unlike minivans available, the Traverse has bold SUV-like styling without giving up too much interior volume. The interior space combines with a cushy ride, to make the Traverse a fairly pleasant place to spend time in. The vehicle strikes a nice balance between these various attributes, making it a good value for families seeking comfortable transportation.


Model Highlights

The Chevy Traverse is powered by a 3.6L V6 engine mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. The engine is good for 288 horsepower, giving the Traverse plenty of oomph for merging and more. Power is sent to either the front or to all four wheels with the $2,000 all-wheel-drive option.

Four trim levels are available: LS, 1LT, 2LT and top-of-the-line LTZ. The base LS comes with plenty of standard features, including an AM/FM/CD player with auxiliary input, USB and satellite radio functions, plus OnStar with 4G LTE and built-in Wi-Fi hotspot. Bluetooth connectivity, 17-inch wheels, daytime running lights, a 6.5-inch touch screen display and a rearview camera are also standard. Chevrolet knows that people spend a lot of time in their cars, and so the Traverse features a total of 10 cup holders for occupants.

1LT-equipped Traverses get 18-inch wheels, an 8-way adjustable power driver's seat, rear park-assist, body-colored external moldings, a remote vehicle starter, heated mirrors and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. The 2LT gives buyers a nicer Bose audio system, heated front seats, tri-zone climate control, a universal home remote, electronic auto-dimming mirror and a power rear liftgate. LTZ models add plenty of appearance add-ons and even more luxury. The 20-inch aluminum wheels are matched with exterior chrome accents to set the vehicle apart. Inside, seating is trimmed in perforated leather and both front seats are heated and cooled. The steering wheel is also heated. Upgraded safety tech on the LTZ includes Blind Zone Alert and Rear-Cross Traffic Alert, making normally tricky reversing maneuvers much easier.

Basic safety equipment across all trim levels is extensive. Anti-lock brakes and StabiliTrak prevent the brakes from locking and the vehicle from going into a skid. A standard rearview monitor provides convenience and added safety, while a tire pressure monitoring system keeps an eye on over- or under-inflated tires. Airbags are plentiful, including a front center side airbag, which inflates between the two front passengers, an industry first. GM's OnStar system is also standard. Optional on 2LT and LTZ models, is a Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning system, which utilizes cameras to monitor nearby traffic and help assess possible collision threats both in front and around the Traverse.


Model News

The Chevrolet Traverse remains largely unchanged for 2016, though the SUV does gain OnStar 4G LTE with WiFi. Additionally, the outside mirrors are now power-folding.

Summary
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2016 Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia, and Buick Enclave vehicles manufactured August 18, 2015 to September 24, 2015. Due to a manufacturing defect, the windshield wiper motor may overheat when used.

Consequence
A wiper motor that overheats increases the risk of a fire.

GM has notified owners, and dealers will replace the windshield wiper motor cover assembly, free of charge.

If weather conditions prevent operation of the vehicle without using the windshield wipers, GM will make arrangements to pick up the vehicle for servicing. The recall began on September 30, 2015. Owners may contact Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020, Buick customer service at 1-800-521-7300, and GMC customer service at 1-800-462-8782. GM's number for this recall is 15780.
