The 2013 Traverse is one of the best three-row crossovers

 

The 2013 Chevy Traverse is similar to its previous models but did get a few updates and modifications.

On the outside of the car the hood is now domed and features a larger grille with the Chevy emblem in the middle. The headlights are reshaped and feature chrome accents. The backend and taillights of the Traverse have also been redesigned, and the license plate was moved to the liftgate. Overall the Traverse is longer than most cars in its class, which provides more interior volume.

The interior of the Traverse includes upgrades such as premium materials, softer surfaces, contrast stitching, new chrome and wood accents, and optional ambient lighting. The 2013 Traverse also includes Chevrolets MyLink which allows consumers to synch their smartphones or stream internet radio stations. If you fold down all the seats the Traverse has 116.4 cubic feet of volume, the most out of any of its direct competitors. Without folding down the seat there is still 24.4 cubic feet behind the third row. The first and second rows have a decent amount of space, and recline and slide backward and forward. The upgrades to the interior are apparent and help set the Traverse apart.

Under the hood a 3.6-liter V-6 engine produces 281 horsepower. There is a standard six-speed automatic transmission that has been upgraded to shift swiftly and consistently. Front-wheel drive is standard but there is an optional all-wheel drive option. There is also an optional dual exhaust system that boosts power to 288 horsepower. The suspension system has also been upgraded from previous models. The Traverse has a combined city/highway EPA gas mileage of 19 mpg, regardless of front-or all-wheel drive. The Traverse also comes with a 5,200-pound towing capacity, which is one of the best in its class. The 2013 model overall has a refined ride, taking bumps with ease while keeping the cabin quiet.

Any Chevrolet Traverse Phoenix driver can also appreciate the impressive array of safety features. Including new safety options like a blind-spot warning system and cross-traffic alert. It also had top scores in all crash tests, making it a Top Safety Pick from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The Traverse also earned an excellent, five-star rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
