Saturday, February 21st 2015. | Chevrolet

A spacious interior has always been the specialty of the 2015 Chevrolet Traverse. The new generation still looks bulky like its forerunner. It can seat up 8 people all at once. It is interesting to see the interior because even though it has a spacious cabin like the average crossover, it looks a bit more stylish. It features a mainstream design. You will fall in love with it. It seems that they try to avoid the stigma that’s strongly already attached to such a car. There are many highlights we can see. The angular headlights are one of the lures. You will also be fascinated by the powerdome hood. It looks truly distinctive, especially if you compare it to other SUVs.

It also features a three-slat radiator grille. This seems to have an impact on the presentation of the front end. It looks very fresh now. It rides on a 203.7-inch wheelbase. Generally speaking, the exterior details are well-executed, giving it a more refined look. The sharp tail lamps boost the curb appeal. The car shares its platform with the GMC Acadia. Well, it gives the car many advantages, one of which is the driving dynamics. The handling feels more rewarding. You can try it yourself to find out. Put the old Tahoe into comparison, the new Traverse outperforms it in this sector. At least that’s what many people feel about the new generation.

The engine is strong enough to deliver 5,200 pounds of towing. The interior is sublime. You could feel the thick upscale appeal the moment you open the door. It uses soft-touch materials. Everything is well-arranged. The crossover can accommodate many occupants thanks to the three rows of seating. It is not the only that part that makes the cabin relieving. The cargo hold is pretty ample, too. Originally it can carry 24.4 cubic feet of luggage. The space can still be expanded by folding down the seats.

It is clear that the car is designed for a family ride from its cavernous cabin. There is a wide array of entertainment features as well. The Chevrolet’s Mylink Infotainment System exists inside just like any other sibling. Buyers are offered a lineup of trim levels. A 6.5-inch touch screen also appears inside. It is a bit small to those who are accustomed to using larger screens. It is not a big deal, anyway. It still does a terrific job at accepting phone calls, navigation, etc.

The engine can project sufficient power to move the car. The engine in question is a 3.6-liter v6. It puts out 281 hp and 266 lb-ft of torque. With some additional setups, these numbers can be improved slightly to 288 and 270 respectively. The engine teams up with a six-speed automatic transmission to distribute power to the new series’ front wheels. If you want another system to work on the car, it is actually provided to buyers as an option. Meanwhile, the fuel economy is far from impressive, but a far cry from lackluster. The company puts out some variants for sale, such as the LS, 1LT, 2LT and LTZ.
