Expert Rating

4.5 (Excellent)
17 City / 24 Highway

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

2013 Chevrolet Traverse OVERVIEW

The 2013 Chevrolet Traverse comes in three main trim levels LS, LT and LTZ. The LS trim level offers up a relatively low base MSRP with an array of premium standard features not found on many base crossover vehicles. The LT trim level adds in basic creature comforts that help make any journey a little more comfortable, including things like a power seat, leather-wrapped steering wheel and others. The LTZ trim level adds in all of the basic features that any owner would expect from a premium crossover SUV, like a premium audio system, leather interior, automatic climate control and much more. Being a crossover SUV means that the Traverse needs to carefully combine car-like handling with SUV-like utility and the latter is proven a success with its 5,200-pound maximum towing capacity and available all-wheel drive.

The crossover SUV market is chock-full of competition, giving the Traverse some rather stout competitors. First up is the 2013 Ford Explorer, which features a $29,135 base MSRP, great looks and a towing capacity of up to 5,000 pounds. The next competitor is the 2013 Honda Pilot, which comes in with a $29,420 base MSRP, a 250-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 engine and a 4,500-pound maximum towing capacity. Finally, you have the 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee, which comes in with a base MSRP of $27,495, a 290-horsepower, 3.6-liter V-6 engine and a stellar 7,200-pound maximum towing capacity.

The Traverse’s competition is rather stiff and plentiful, so if Chevy expects to stay in the crossover race, it needs to bring something special to the table.
