Ferry the family in safety and comfort
The Chevrolet Traverse, on sale here at our dealership, is one the most refined, spacious and safest ways to transport up to eight people. With new safety technology and two years or 24,000 miles of free factory scheduled maintenance, the 2014 Traverse is the smart choice for the value-conscious driver. New for 2014, the Chevrolet Traverse (MSRP $30,795) offers Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning systems.
Utilizing a high-resolution camera and various sensors, the 2014 Traverse can tell if you are getting too close to vehicles ahead, and if you are entering another lane without signaling. These two systems, plus available Side Blind Zone Alert and Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and standard features like StabiliTrak electronic stability control, a Rear Vision Camera, four-wheel antilock brakes and a tire pressure monitoring system, make the Traverse one of the safest vehicles on the road.The Traverse also features the industry’s first front-center airbag.
The Traverse seats up to eight and is well-equipped, offering plenty of comfort and convenience features like a heated steering wheel, child-friendly SmartSlide second-row bench or SmartSlide captain’s chairs seating, an available rear-seat DVD entertainment system and a power liftgate. Also new for 2014 are a pair of USB charging ports, located at the rear of the center console for easy second-row access, for charging many of today’s popular electronic devices. Premium materials, soft-touch surfaces, contrasting stitching and available blue ambient lighting provide an air of luxury to a cabin that is also extremely practical thanks to its class-leading passenger and cargo volume.
Whether you are carrying people or stuff, nothing holds more than the Traverse. Cargo capacity measures 24.4 cubic feet behind the third row, 70.3 cubic feet behind the second row and 116.3 cubic feet behind the first row. On the technology front, the Traverse features a 6.5-inch touch-screen Color Touch radio with available Chevrolet MyLink or MyLink with Navigation. You can take the power of standard OnStar with you using the OnStar RemoteLink mobile app and your smartphone.
RemoteLink allows you to remotely lock and unlock doors, send directions to the car, access vehicle information and perform other functions. The available FamilyLink service allows you to monitor the location of the vehicle online or via location alerts. Keep track of your young drivers, start your car on the cold morning or track down a stolen vehicle, all with the power of your phone and OnStar . The 3.6-liter V6 in the Traverse uses advanced engine technologies like direct injection and continuously variable valve timing to increase power and efficiency. The result is a maximum of 288 hp and 270 lb/ft of torque that’s routed through a six-speed automatic transmission with improved shift feel. Thanks to its efficient powertrain and aerodynamic shape, the Traverse returns an EPA-estimated 24 mpg highway.
You can choose standard front-wheel drive or the available Intelligent All-Wheel Drive system, and a maximum towing capacity of up to 5,200 pounds even more value and versatility. The new exterior design of the Traverse is more than aerodynamic; with a power dome hood, wheel sizes up to 20-inches and bold front fascia, the Traverse looks aggressive and sporty. Sculpted front corners, streamlined headlamps and chrome details add touches of luxury and refinement, and a wide selection of paint colors lets you tailor your Traverse to match your personal style. In their Traverse review, Automobile Magazine editors said, “After the superb re-styling and other upgrades, we don’t hesitate to call it a winner and won’t be surprised if this excellent vehicle, eyes glinting afresh, helps itself to an even greater share of the large crossover segment.” Class-leading space; a thoughtful, refined and family-friendly cabin; effortless performance; industry-leading safety features; a five-year/100,000-mile Powertrain Limited Warranty and two years/24,000 miles of scheduled maintenance coverage make the Chevrolet Traverse a leader in the segment and vehicle worthy of your trust.
