Let’s start with the power to get this truck moving. Under the hood is 3.6L V6 producing 310 HP and mated to a 9-speed automatic transmission giving it up to 18 MPG in the city, 27 MPG on the highway, and a combined 21 MPG.

The Traverse seats up to eight people depending on which seating choices you buy. There is a ton of space in the back, with rear storage of 98.2 cubic feet. The third-row, when up, is comfortable for adults. The passenger room is generous in all three rows.




The upgraded navigation and infotainment systems is a big improvement. It offers satellite radio, a standard Wi-Fi hotspot, and plenty of charging ports. Onstar is standard, as is cross-traffic alert, rear seat reminder, and rear vision camera which was not available on High Country trim level.

Teen Driver Technology is an available built-in system to help a new driver. It features a speed alert, a volume limit.  This makes it possible to track your teen, or new driver’s performance when you are not there.
