The Chevrolet Traverse is a roomy and feature-rich three-row family crossover. The Traverse nameplate debuted in 2008, and for the 2018 model year an all-new, second-generation version debuted. With a long list of family-friendly tech features to equip it with and seating for up to eight people, the Traverse is an able contender in a packed segment.
The Traverse offers two engines, both of which are backed up by a nine-speed automatic transmission and have fuel-saving stop-start technology. The first choice is a 3.6-liter V6, rated for a class-competitive 310 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque. When equipped with front-wheel drive, it returns 18 miles per gallon city and 27 mpg highway, while all-wheel-drive versions turn in EPA scores of 17/25 mpg. Also available is a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four with 257 horsepower and 295 pound-feet -- though it's limited to the sporty-ish RS trim level. The engine is only offered with front-wheel drive and is much more efficient than the V6, with EPA ratings of 20/26 mpg.
