The 2010 Chevrolet Traverse crossover vehicle offers people-hauling and cargo-carrying capability typically found in larger SUVs. Fuel efficiency comes from a 3.6L V-6 with direct injection technology.
New for 2010 is a USB port that is included with premium radios. Located in the center console, it connects portable music devices to the vehicle's audio system and charges batteries of some hand-held items.
The Traverse casts a unique profile with a sleek, smooth and flowing design. Elements such as chrome-ringed grille inserts, available projector-beam headlamps and large wheel-and-tire combinations highlight the vehicle's finely honed attention to detail.
The Traverse is offered in LS, LT and LTZ models, in both front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive configurations.
The 3.6L engine's direct injection technology helps produce power similar to many V-8 engines and uses regular unleaded gasoline. It is rated at 288 horsepower and 270 lb.-ft. of torque. The 3.6L engine is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission.
The Traverse can be configured for seven or eight adults, including two front bucket seats, a 60/40-split second-row bench (three passengers) or two second-row captain's chairs (two passengers) and a 60/40-split third-row bench seat. Perforated leather seats as well as second-row captain's chairs are available. The third-row seat is capable of comfortably seating adults while simultaneously providing generous storage space behind it.
