2014 Chevrolet Traverse Video Transcript
Reviewers say that the 2014 Chevrolet Traverse trumps other SUVs with its spacious interior, ample cargo space and easy maneuverability. Hi! I am Jim Sharifi, Senior Editor with US News Best Cars. Is the Chevy Traverse the ideal SUV for you? Let's take a closer look. The 2014 Chevrolet Traverse seats up to 8 and comes standard with front-wheel drive; all-wheel drive is optional. The Traverse was refreshed last year and was first introduced for the 2009 model of the year. A V6 engine and a 6-speed automatic transmission are standard on all models. Fuel economy has an EPA estimated 17 miles per gallon in the city and 24 on the highway which is typical for the class. The Traverse starts at just under $31,000 and comes in 4-trims.
Most test drivers say the Traverse's V6 engine makes adequate power. However, some feel that it's occasionally overtaxed by the SUV's heft. They give the 6-speed automatic transmission good marks for smooth shifting, but they also report that it sometimes slow to down shift when you need more power.
The Traverse pleases its critics with handling that's fairly composed as well as a comfortable ride and good maneuverability in tight spaces. Most automotive critics like the Traverse's cabin calling it one of the most spacious in the affordable mid-size SUV class. They also appreciate that the cabin features soft touch materials. Notable standard features include a back-up camera, Bluetooth, HD radio and satellite radio. Reviewers generally like the Traverse's optional MyLink infotainment system calling it easy to use. Optional features include a Bose stereo, a rear-seat entertainment system, forward collision alert and a lane departure warning.
