Fresh off last year's total redesign, Chevrolet's largest crossover comes to the rescue of families who need all the space they can get. With seating for eight and class-leading cargo space, the 2019 Chevrolet Traverse deserves its ubiquitous presence on the American crossover scene.
What's New for 2019

Choosing Your Chevrolet Traverse
The Traverse's main virtue has always been interior room. It really can accommodate eight adults spread across three rows, or seven with the optional second-row captain's chairs. With a full crew aboard, the Traverse handles up to 23 cubic feet of cargo. This capability grows to 58.1 cubic feet with the second row folded, and a whopping 98.2 cubic feet with all seats out of the way. A 10-inch deep storage well hides under the floor.
Most models carry a 3.6-liter V6 engine that delivers 310 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque, paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission. This engine is EPA-rated at 18 miles per gallon city, 27 mpg highway, and 21 combined with front-wheel drive, or 17/25/20 mpg (city/highway/combined) with all-wheel drive. The sporty RS trim gets a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 255 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. Available only with front-wheel drive, the 2.0-liter is rated 20/26/22 mpg.

The LT provides the best balance of features and price, and can be scaled up without going overboard. For buyers who want all the safety technology Chevy has to offer, only the Premiere or High Country will do.
