Looking for a three-row crossover that does it all, from carting several kids to soccer practice to tackling long distance travel excursions? Then consider the 2017 Chevrolet Traverse which offers a pleasurable ride and great features at a fairly reasonable price.
The 2017 Chevrolet Traverse steps up the safety game with side-mounted airbags, anti-lock brakes, electronic stability and traction control that many have come to expect from Chevrolet’s full line of SUVs. The driver never have to worry about themselves and their family’s safety when driving this vehicle.
The currently available trims are:
(All prices are the listed MSRP)
• Basic – $28,700 for the standard engine (see below) and no available upgrades.
• LS 4-door SUV with a 3.6L, 6-cylinder engine for $32,210
• Well-Equipped – LT with 1LT 4-door SUV with a 3.6L, 6-cylinder engine for $36,225
• Loaded – LT with 1LT 4-door SUV with AWD and a 3.6L, 6-cylinder engine for $38,980
The engines provide 281 horsepower at 6300 rpm, meaning the Traverse packs enough power for the long haul and plenty of cargo space. Since every row of seats collapses down, the achievable range of cargo goes from 24.4-116.3 cubic feet. Further, this midsize SUV has an exterior that many not win the most stunning body of the year award is sophisticated and sleek. Whether the FWD or AWD model is chosen, the driver are assured at smooth, carlike ride with excellent handling.
Unfortunately, the Chevrolet Traverse is a gas guzzler. Those who wish to save on gas should look elsewhere, because the 2017 Chevrolet Transverse only gets an estimated 15 mpg city and 22 mpg highway.
The 2017 Chevrolet Traverse has a typical list of standard features such as OnStar access, remote keyless entry, a USB port, 6.5-inch touch screen, 6 speakers, steering-wheel mounted controls, and a rearview camera which will be appreciated, since many drivers complain that the rearward visibility is rather poor. However, this is to be expected of all midsize SUVs.
Should the buyer decide to upgrade to the Well-Equipped (1LT/2LT) or Loaded (also known as the Traverse Premier) trim, then they also receive:
• Leather-wrapped steering wheel
• Rear parking assist
• Remote start
• Chevrolet MyLink – a smartphone integration application for the infotainment system
• A rear-facing DVD entertainment system
• Panoramic sunroof
• Bose surround sound
• Tri-zone automatic climate control
And for the Premier:
• Driver memory settings
• Heated steering wheel
• Lane departure warning
• Forward collision warning
• Blind spot monitoring
Apart from all the significant pluses, like the vast cargo space and safety ratings, there are some cons that come with this midsize vehicle. The previously mentioned infotainment system, which is mainly available to the pricier models, has been reported to be slow and outdated in functionality. Plus, the more passengers that load into the vehicle, the more acceleration is dampened.
Still, the Traverse has a comfortable ride, is pleasing in both aesthetics and content, and offers plenty of room for 8 people to sit happily. Because of this, the 2017 Chevrolet Traverse is definitely worth a test drive.
How to Calculate The Dealer Cost of a Chevrolet Traverse
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Chevrolet Traverse invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of all the options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here)
Note: All Chevrolet Traverse MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
