Check out what this capable CUV offers, then see how easy it is to finance yours at Gregg Young Chevrolet of Norwalk.

Engine Options

The dynamic Traverse is powered by the driver’s choice of two potent engines:

  • 3.6L: The standard 3.6L V6 motor is mated to a 9-speed automatic transmission to generate as much as 310 hp and 266 lb.-ft. of torque. Together, this combination provides the Traverse with an impressive 5,000 pounds of towing capacity and an EPA-estimated fuel economy of up to 18 mpg/city and 27 mpg/highway.

  • 2.0L: Select trims can also add an Ecotec 2.0L 4-cylinder engine with the same 9-speed automatic transmission. Together, this pair reportedly generate 255 hp and 295 lb.-ft. of torque and up to 20 mpg/city and 23 mpg/highway fuel efficiency.

Other Performance Features

Potent engines aren’t the only reasons to choose one of the new Traverse crossovers; Chevy offers plenty more with these compelling features:

  • StabiliTrak: Chevrolet’s innovative StabiliTrak system provides the right amount of power to selected wheels when it senses slippage to ensure the vehicle remains under the driver’s control.

  • All-Wheel Drive: The Traverse comes standard with front-wheel drive, but drivers who want improved capabilities can opt for the available all-wheel drive unit.

  • Twin-Clutch Feature: For drivers who upgrade to the High Country trim there is an enhanced version of the AWD system with twin-clutch control.

  • Mode Select: Drivers can choose the optional Mode Select system to easily change between FWD, 4X4/Snow, Off-Road, or Tow/Haul modes depending on the demands of the road.
