The Chevrolet Traverse: An SUV That Has It All

In recent years, SUVs have started to outsell sedans. Many people prefer SUVs because of their increased utility and power.

If you’re interested in SUVs, you’re probably familiar with the Chevrolet SUV lineup. One of the standout cars of this lineup is the Chevrolet Traverse. 

So how does the Chevrolet Traverse stack up to the competition? Read on for a Chevrolet Traverse review that will tell you what you need to know. 


First, we’ll look at the Chevrolet Traverse performance. The 2022 Chevrolet Traverse uses a 3.6-liter V6 engine that gives it 310 horsepower.

Compared to the competition, this kind of power sits somewhere at the midpoint. This car is more powerful than something like a Subaru Ascent, but the performance is not quite as good as something like the Ford Explorer. 

Fuel Economy

In terms of fuel economy, the Chevrolet Traverse is fairly average. If you have the car set in front-wheel drive, you can expect to get around 18 miles per gallon when driving in the city. On the highway, you can expect to get around 27 miles to the gallon on the highway. 

If you have the all-wheel drive version, these numbers will be slightly worse. There are certainly worse SUVs on the market in terms of fuel economy, but there are also better models. 


While the 2022 version of the Chevrolet Traverse has yet to be tested by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the 2020 model received a very favorable safety rating. Given that the 2022 model is quite similar to the 2022 model, it’s likely that this car will receive a five-star safety rating as well. 

All 2022 models come with Chevy Safety Assist. This includes great features such as automatic emergency braking, a warning system if you’re drifting out of your lane, and blind spot monitoring. 


When it comes to the amount of space in the vehicle, the Chevrolet Traverse is a strong contender with the competition. While other models, such as the Ford Explorer, has more room overall, the Chevrolet Traverse is exceptional in its third-row legroom. With 33.5 inches of third-row legroom, you have inches more than rival cars. 

If you’re someone who uses the third row of an SUV often, you can’t go wrong with this car. 

Storage Space

Finally, this car seriously beats the competition. With the third row upright, you’ll have 23 cubic feet of space. Even if you have all of the rows occupied, there’s still a huge amount of storage space in the car. If you’re looking for an SUV that lets you store a lot of equipment, this could be the car for you. 

The Chevrolet Traverse Could Be a Great Investment

As you can see, the Chevrolet Traverse is a great car that could serve you well. While it isn’t superior to the competition in every aspect, it does have a lot of standout features. For example, if you’re looking for a lot of storage space or room in the third row, you can’t beat this car.
