Every three-row crossover prospective buyer out there should consider the 2021 Chevrolet Traverse before looking at any other alternative. The reason is that the latest rendition of the Traverse offers unparalleled comfort, great safety, and tons of connectivity features at a tantalizingly low price.
Above all else, and what seals the deal for most people, is comfort. No other SUV in its class can get you from point A to point B more comfortably than the Traverse. Even if the distance you’ll need to travel spans hundreds and hundreds of miles.
There are three components that make up Traverse’s exceptional comfort level. One is its interior roominess, the second is the superb powertrain, and the third is the quality of the cabin and its chairs.
Let’s take them one by one.
Under the hood, all Traverse trims get the same engine – a reliable and mighty 3.6-liter V6 that will belt out 310 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque. Chevrolet paired it with a 9-speed automatic that helps the Traverse offer a smooth, confident ride be it inside the city limits or on the highway. The V6 is also on the quiet end of its class which helps reduce noise pollution entering the cabin. It’s a great powertrain that makes the Traverse feel like a car rather than a truck to drive, something bigger SUVs from Chevrolet’s lineup such as the Tahoe or the Suburban can’t say.
Chevrolet made great use of technology to boost passenger and driver comfort as every Traverse comes equipped with perks such as Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, the manufacturer’s latest Infotainment 3 System that ranks among the most intuitive on the market, six USB ports, Bluetooth radio streaming, and a superb 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot that allows for up to 7 people to connect to it simultaneously – which is everyone inside the car but the driver.
Engine power and tech are great but they’re all just add-ons, bonuses that pile up on the real benefit – interior roominess and comfort.
Able to carry 8 adults in absolute comfort, the 2021 Traverse still has plenty of room left for cargo – with a full cabin, you’ll fit six carry-on suitcases in the truck. And the storage space can balloon to a little under 100 cubic feet with both the second and third rows folded which means that you can furnish a kid’s room from Ikea in one go. Or a bedroom.
Second-row passengers get 38 inches of leg-room and third-row passengers get 33 inches which is more than enough for even above-average height adults to sit comfortably in Traverse’s supportive seats.
But the best way to understand just how comfortable a ride in the Traverse is, is by taking a ride in one. That's where we come in. If you're thinking of buying a 2021 Traverse, you should visit us at Karl Chevrolet.
