The Northeast New Jersey Drive is an Adventure in the New Chevy Traverse
As modern family crossovers go, you'd be hard-put to find one more powerful yet fuel-economical, cargo-friendly yet comfortably roomy, and loaded with standard and available safety and technology features than a Chevrolet. The new Traverse is a prime example. The long story, short: it's all you've come to expect from a Chevy mid-size SUV. But better yet, it's all you and the gang could hope to find in one. Discover why here at Schumacher Chevrolet Little Falls!
Power and Performance
Step into the base Traverse L trim. Graduate to Traverse LS or LT. Rise to the luxurious Premier trim or go fully loaded in Traverse High Country. No matter which you choose, you'll find a capable orienteer for the ride. Most trims incorporate a workhorse 310-horsepower, 3.6-liter V6 -- an eager accelerator ready to charge anywhere the open road or unbeaten path call. For the sporty among us, trims like Traverse RS build in a turbocharged 257-horsepower, 2.0-liter engine, an agile performer for the highway cruise.
As both mate to a nine-speed auto transmission, you can expect efficiency just as high as the SUV's power ratings. Depending on trim and according to EPA estimates, Traverse can achieve up to 20 mpg in a city like Paterson, NJ or Hawthorne and 26 mpg down the highway to locales like Wayne, NJ or West Caldwell.
Safety and Driver Assistance Features
Chevrolet designed Traverse to deliver comprehensive protection on the road and off for your peace of mind. It shows in the crossover's slate of active and passive security features. For one, an advanced twin-clutch all-wheel-drive system is available to best the worst Atlantic coastal weather. Moreover, a Traction Mode Select system employs modes from 4x4/Snow to Off-Road to help you stay ahead of diverse driving conditions. Finally, its host of driver-assist technologies improve your situational awareness and accident-avoidance capabilities. Options range from adaptive cruise control, forward collision alert, and front pedestrian, forward, and low-speed forward automatic braking to lane keep assist, lane departure warning, rear cross-traffic alert, and more.
Interior and Technology Features
The new Traverse is nothing if not luxuriously accommodating. Its available Dual SkyScape two-panel power sunroof is just the first of many pleasant accents to your trip.
The SUV seats up to eight comfortably in three spacious rows, for instance, and your choice of premium cloth or perforated leather seating comes available heated and ventilated up front and power-adjustable and with power lumbar support for the driver. Bring available tri-zone auto climate control into the mix and upgrade the enhanced Smart Slide second row to optional heated second-row captain's chairs, and it becomes the lap of luxury.
Collapse everything, however, and you can use up to a whopping 98.2 cubic feet for luggage and essentials, with extra room afforded by a concealed under-floor storage area. Access it all easily via an available hands-free gesture liftgate and take a trailerful along to boot -- Traverse can, after all, tow up to 5,000 pounds, putting it in dirt bike-, ATV-, boat-, and second-vehicle-hauling territory.
Your command center comes to a head in a center stack home to either a 7- or 8-inch Chevrolet Infotainment System. The availability of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto lets you connect a smartphone, while optional built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi enables getting on the Internet. Moreover, with USB ports in each row and optional wireless charging, it's a breeze to keep all your electronics energized and prepared for the trip.
