    Overview

    The 2013 Chevrolet Traverse is considered as one of the most desirable full-size SUV models in the market right now. This is because the vehicle has recently obtained a restyled interior and exterior design. In addition to that, the Traverse is admired for its capability to accommodate up to 8 passengers, provide an impressive ride quality, and abundant space for cargoes.

    Unfortunately, the latest version of the Traverse is criticized for a number of flaws such as the poor rearward visibility and the not-so upscale interior materials that were used on the vehicle's cabin. Due to these negative characteristics, a lot of full-size SUV buyers are now considering the some of the Traverse's closest rivals as their top vehicle option.

    Exterior

    The 2013 Chevrolet Traverse currently flaunts an attractive and athletic exterior styling. The Traverse features a powerdome hood and an all-new shape. In addition to this, the vehicle obtained a two-bar lower and a three-bar upper grille design, chrome accents that surround the vehicle's foglamps and grille, new lamps, and well-sculpted corners in front that are quite identical to what the Chevrolet Malibu sedan.

    Aside from that, the redesigned license plate pocket and newly-redesigned taillamps that were installed on the vehicle's liftgate provided the latest version of the Traverse with a sporty look. Due to these characteristics, the 2013 Chevrolet Traverse currently embodies the new image of Chevrolet crossovers.

    Interior

    The 2013 Chevrolet Traverse is actually blessed with an attractive interior design. However, this is usually overlooked since a lot of buyers and car experts would usually notice some of the vehicle cabin's flaws such as its poor rearward visibility and the lack of upscale look and feel of the materials that were used by the company's interior designers.

    Aside from the flaws provided earlier, the Traverse is also criticized since the touchscreen display which is used to control the functions of the infotainment system and the rearview monitor was installed below the driver's eyesight. Due to this set-up, the driver is required to detach his attention from the road when he is trying to access some of the functions included on this. In addition to this, the vehicle's interface is also frustrating since the touch inputs are usually slow.

    But despite of all the downsides that were found on the cabin of the Chevrolet Traverse, a lot of buyers are still considering this as their top vehicle option since the crossover provides an ample amount of legroom and headroom on the front and second-row seats.

    Unfortunately, the seat cushions on the middle seat were mounted low. In order to resolve this issue, the seat should be slid backwards. However doing this eventually eliminates the legroom of the third row. The third-row seats on the other hand provides a limited amount of space and this particular characteristics made these seats suitable for smaller adult passengers and for the kids.

    A lot of buyers also view the 2013 Chevrolet Traverse as a good vehicle option since this offers a generous amount of cargo space. With the third-row seats in use, the latest version of the Traverse is capable of accommodating up to 24.4 cubic feet of load. Folding the seats found on the rearmost portion of the vehicle increases its cargo space to about 70.3 cubic feet. Folding the second-row seat on the other hand increases the maximum cargo space provided by the Traverse to 116.3 cubic feet.

    Performance   Handling

    The existing trims of the 2013 Chevrolet Traverse models are powered by a 3.6-liter V6 engine which is capable of producing the maximum power output of 281 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque. The LTZ trim's twin exhaust outlets on the other hand increases the maximum power output produced by the same V8 engine to 288 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque. The power generated by the V6 engine is passed on to the vehicle's front wheels (for the FWD) or the 4 wheels (for the AWD) through the 6-speed automatic transmission.

    Fuel Economy

    The front wheel drive version of the 2013 Chevrolet Traverse got the EPA-estimated fuel economy ratings of at 17 miles per gallon in the city, 24 miles per gallon on the highway and 19 miles per gallon when combined. The all-wheel drive models of the Traverse on the other hand obtained the ratings of 16 miles per gallon in the city, 23 miles per gallon on the highway, and 19 miles per gallon combined. These ratings are considered average for larger crossover models such as the Traverse.
