If you are looking for a sizeable vehicle but you are not really into minivans or full-size SUVs, we are glad to present you the new 2019 Chevrolet Traverse. This model represents a rather comfortable alternative for SUVs or minivans. The newcomer is almost as spacious as the truck-based Chevrolet Tahoe. Thanks to its car-type platform, it has friendlier driving characteristics. Even though the vehicle has been significantly revised, it will still stay a really spacious and a passenger-friendly model and its mission will still be to move people around. This 3-row crossover SUV is a perfect combination of spacious cabin, powerful and fuel-efficient engine options, and excellent exterior. It is really hard to find all these qualities at one place and that is why the 2019 Chevrolet Traverse should be your choice if you need a vehicle of this kind.

Exterior

The new 2019 Chevrolet Traverse will be offered in three trim levels including the base LS, LT, and the highest LTZ. Since the Traverse is a relatively new model, there is no need for drastic changes at least when it comes to the exterior design. It is not a traditionally looking SUV with the blocky shape- it is a handsome and rounded vehicle. The highest trim level LTZ comes with exterior mirrors and electronic blind spot monitoring which is a quite helpful feature because the Traverse is a sizeable vehicle. The highest trim level also gets dual-exhaust outlets, chrome elements, and body-color moldings. Higher trim level also gets a power-operated liftgate, while the lower ones get a manual.

Interior


The cabin of the 2019 Chevrolet Traverse has three rows of seats and it can accommodate up to 7 or 8 passengers. Lower trims accommodate 8 passengers because of the bench seat in the second row, while the LTZ accommodates 7 passengers at the time. The highest trim level gets leather seating, while the lower trims get cloth seating. All trim levels get Chevrolet’s MyLing system, with 6.5” color touchscreen, smartphone connectivity, Stitcher and Pandora internet-based infotainment. Family cars such as the 2019 Chevrolet Traverse need a lot of safety equipment. Safety features for the newcomer include rearview camera, parking sensors, hill start assist, forward collision alert, lane departure warning, head-curtain side airbags, and much more.

Engine

Under the hood of the 2019 Chevrolet Traverse is a 3.6-liter V6 direct-inject engine with different outputs in three trim levels. In LS and LT trim levels, the engine produces 281 hp. The highest trim level LTZ gets a dual-exhaust system which increases the output for about 7 hp. All engines are coupled to a 6-speed automatic shifter with FWD as standard and AWD as an optional extra. Fuel economy of the engine is rated at 17 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway with FWD and 16 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway with AWD.
