Vehicle Profile: 2021 Chevrolet Traverse
Large and in charge, the 2021 Chevrolet Traverse excels at being a family-friendly SUV, a road-trip adventurer, and a spacious commuter. With impressive capability and fuel ratings, the 2021 Traverse can handle heavy loads whether for fun or work while respecting your gas budget.
The 2021 Chevrolet Traverse offers a choice of seven trim levels: L, LS, LT Cloth, LT Leather, RS, Premier, and High Country.
Spacious, organized cabin
The 2021 Chevrolet Traverse accommodates eight, and allows rear passengers easy access to their seats thanks to Smart Slide® seating in the second row. The standard 60/40 split folding seats in the third row and the available power-folding third row help you quickly configure space for passengers and items. The available hands-free power liftgate helps with loading and unloading the cavernous cargo area of 98.2 cubic feet when rear seats are folded down, a best-in-class measurement. One standard and one available hidden storage compartment allow you to conceal valuable items.
A standard 3.6-liter V6 engine paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission generates 310 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque, resulting in a powerful, responsive performance you will appreciate. When properly equipped, the 2021 Traverse can tow 5,000 pounds. With all this power and capability, though, the 2021 Traverse still returns 18 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway.* When equipped with the Driver Mode Selector, the Traverse helps deliver better control on a variety of terrain. Simply turn the dial to toggle between front-wheel drive, all-wheel drive, off-road, and tow/haul modes. No matter how challenging the condition of the road is, the 2021 Traverse can adjust, offering high-quality performance and greater peace of mind.
Connected on the go
Not only does the 2021 Traverse make room for a large crowd of passengers, it also caters to those passengers’ connectivity needs. With USB ports in every row, the Traverse lets your passengers connect their compatible devices. You can man the controls of the user-friendly infotainment system by integrating your smartphone via Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, so you have access to your favorite contacts, playlists, app, and navigational assistance.
Safety tech to help protect you and your family
The 2021 Chevrolet Traverse prioritizes the safety of you and your passengers with a comprehensive list of active and passive safety technologies and systems. Seeing what is behind you is not easy, and that is why the 2021 Traverse offers several available technologies to help monitor potential threats: Rear Camera Mirror, Rear Park Assist, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert. A rear vision camera comes standard to help protect you as you reverse. Under proper conditions, available Forward Collision Alert monitors threats in front of you and warns you when you are too close to the vehicle ahead of you. Available Front Pedestrian Braking activates when you are traveling under 50 miles per hour during the day. Under proper conditions, the tech not only warns you if you might hit a pedestrian, it also automatically engages the brakes to help you come to a stop.
The powerful performance, well-appointed cabin, and adventure-ready attitude of the 2021 Chevrolet Traverse will inspire you to get behind the wheel as often as possible.
