American’s aren’t the only ones that love SUVs and crossovers, but we like to live larger than most countries. The second generation Chevy Traverse is happy to fill that desire for bigness. Tom Voelk checks out a mid level LT model with front drive, because not everyone needs all-wheel drive.

      It will disappoint when it is worth nothing after 3 years, and you have spent half of your life in the dealership waiting on repairs. Apple Carplay does not do a thing for you when you are stranded on the side of the road! Friends always buy Toyota!

      @Gabe Pickens He was talking about the old version of Traverse. The new one was redesigned for 2018.

      The old version was rated beat in segment in 2017 over the Toyota Sequoia by Consumer Reports. We have the 2017 Acadia Limited(old style one) and it has been flawless.

      @Keith Hamilton This is the redesigned Traverse. But the old one was rated the best in segment on top of the Toyota Sequoia by Consumer Reports.

      Okay thanks for the heads up! I'm assuming you had these issues on the 2018? Looks like a nice SUV otherwise but I'm leary to trust GM after having such great luck with Toyota and Honda in our past.

      Gabe Pickens It nick picks you to death. Lights leaked, actuators for heat and air, every service is a 3 hour charge plus parts. Timing chain recall. Just try to change a tire in 30 minutes.

      Can you imagine 21 miles to the gallon , on some thing that big with 310 HP . 30 years ago that would have gotten 15 miles to the gallon

      Car & Driver recorded 27 mpg on their 200 mile test at 75 mph. That is best in class for the largest crossover in the segment.

      I love this Traverse, we got a 1LT in Pepperdust Metallic. OnStar is a BIG help with navigation in this modern vehicle. I personally think Chevrolet is taking a big step into the future. Another great video by Tom.

      We drove a 2018 Traverse in the fall of 2017 but there was discouting on them. So we leased a 2017 Acadia Limited which has been a great car!

      Nice vehicle; too bad standard safety features on the $31k Toyota Highlander will cost you nearly $53k on the Chevrolet Traverse!!! WTF GM!!! SAFETY SHOULD NOT BE OPTIONAL!!!

      The driver is the most important part of the vehicle. We can recognize bad situations and avoid them as opposed to safety stuff that just reacts.

      I test drove one. Two dealbreakers- 1. the apple CarPlay was very laggy. Changing songs would some times take a full minute to process. 2. The auto start stop was lurchy and can’t be turned off.
      I really liked everything else.

      We drove a 2018 Traverse model in the fall of 2017. It was the perfect quiet ride but there was no discounts and went with a Acadia Limited.
