2008 Chevrolet Traverse Review

  Traverse NavTraffic  
The 2009 Chevrolet Traverse has enough room to fit eight passengers, but six will fit more comfortably. The V6 comes with some nice features that one would expect from a luxury car but from a sport utility vehicle. The front wheel drive is nice for all road conditions, but the all wheel drive is the best for areas where there is snow and unstable road conditions. You may not want enter the Traverse in a rally car race, but it will provide a smooth ride on reasonably rough terrain or on roads that are desperately in need of repair. The dual exhaust system is a must have with more power, but the single exhaust is just as powerful for someone that desires the luxury.

The 2009 Chevrolet Traverse gets alot of its stylish front-end design from the Malibu, as well as the interior front seating area. The front seating area has two bucket seats while the second row is a bench seat that seats three with a 60/40 spilt folding seat. The third seating area also has a 60/40 split and seats three. The Traverse does offer second row seating for two with the captain's chairs. If you fold the back seating down, you will have ample cargo space. It equals out to 117.9 cubic feet. Not bad for a luxury sport vehicle.

The On Star navigation system will give you directions to anywhere in the United States. The feature comes standard on all models. There are some features that will make the Traverse more enjoyable such as the heated and cooled front seats, Bluetooth hands free cell phone, XM satellite with real time traffic, DVD entertainment in the rear seats, a power lift gate, rearview camera that makes backing up easier and rear park assist. The 2009 Chevrolet Traverse is a good buy for a speculated MSRP of $27,000.

2009 Chevy Traverse Interior  The Traverse has a tire pressure monitor that will alert you to low air pressure in the tires. This is going to help keep your gas mileage up where it should be. The antilock brakes are another good feature as well as the StabiliTrak electronic stability control with rollover mitigation. The stability control has improved the way the vehicle handles around corners. You no longer feel the turn as much as you did when the SUV's first made their debut. The overall riding experience is going to be like riding in a luxury car. You will have total control of all the car's functions from the convenient placement of the controls.

The driver does not have to move all over the dashboard to call someone, adjust the temperature or turn around to park. The 2009 Chevrolet Traverse offers a vehicle that is made with people in mind. As the Traverse becomes more popular with buyers, you should see more of them on the roads. This is one vehicle that will live up to it's reputation quickly both with luxury car drivers and Chevy enthusiast that have been waiting for a luxury ride without losing the sporty look of the vehicle.
