Introducing the New 2021 Chevy Traverse

  • Introducing the New 2021 Chevy Traverse Slider
The Chevy Traverse is a bit of an anomaly within the midsize SUV category. While it has the appearance of a crossover, Traverse still carries a spacious three-row interior with seating for up to eight passengers. It comes with a host of standard features and Chevy safety technology, yet it’s priced below many of the segment’s key competitors. And even though Traverse is outfitted with a hearty 3.6-liter V6 engine capable of 310 horsepower and towing capacity of up to 5,000 pounds (when properly equipped), it still achieves impressive fuel economy ratings. The smallest in a trio of three-row Chevy SUVs that includes the Suburban and Tahoe, Vern Eide GM in Mitchell is proud to introduce the new 2021 Traverse.

2021 Traverse Review from Car and Driver

A potent V-6 engine gives the Traverse its legs, and a slick-shifting nine-speed automatic transmission changes gears unobtrusively. The 3.6-liter V-6 pulls strongly and the Traverse is on the quicker end of its class. The cabin is so quiet that you need to steal a glance at the tachometer to ensure the engine is running while at a stoplight. And it might not be, as the Traverse features what is perhaps the most seamless automatic stop-start feature we’ve tested.1

Thanks to its boxy profile, the Traverse has presence; it especially stands out in the RS and High Country trims. There are lots of convenient touches, too, like second-row seats that slide out and tip up, a hands-free power liftgate with a height configuration, and an available 360-degree view parking camera system to help you park your massive box on wheels in any spot. For 2021, the available Driver Confidence II package has been renamed the Chevy Safety Assist package and is available on all but the L and LS grades of the Traverse.2

2021 Traverse Review from Edmunds

Size and style are the 2021 Chevrolet Traverse’s calling cards. Though it competes with three-row midsize SUVs, the handsome eight-passenger Traverse is significantly larger inside than most alternatives. That pays dividends in terms of passenger comfort and a maximum cargo volume measurement of 98.2 cubic feet. A standard 310-horsepower V6 engine supplies robust acceleration and up to 5,000 pounds of towing capacity.3
