5 reasons to buy the 2019 Chevrolet Traverse

1. Choice of two engines

2019 Chevrolet Traverse Review: Engine | CarMax

Whether you are shopping for a gutsy V6 or a peppy turbo, the 2019 Traverse caters to your performance wants with two powertrain options: a 3.6L V6 with 310 horsepower and 266 lb.-ft. of torque or a 257-horsepower 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder with 295 lb.-ft. of torque. The V6 comes standard on all 2019 Traverse trims, except the RS, which includes the turbo four-cylinder with FWD as standard equipment and the 3.6L V6 as optional. If you need an SUV that can give you more confidence in slick road conditions, all 2019 Traverse trims offer available AWD, except the High Country trim, which includes AWD as standard. Want to bring your ATVs or snowmobile along for the ride? The 2019 Chevrolet Traverse's towing capacity with the 3.6L V6 is an estimated 5,000-lb. max capacity when properly equipped.

2. Smart storage space

All 2019 Traverse models feature 24 open storage spaces throughout the cabin, providing smartly-designed compartments to keep your small must-haves close at hand. This includes a slim passenger-side pocket that's the perfect place to store your tablet, while the trunk includes a spacious underfloor cargo basement to tuck hidden treasures out of sight. All 2019 models also feature a roomy center console and dedicated spots to keep smartphones and umbrellas organized, plus there is no shortage of beverage space with 10 cupholders. 2019 LT Leather and higher trims also boast a power rear liftgate that opens up to a cavernous cargo area with 23 cubic feet of storage behind the third-row. Folding the second and third rows expands capacity to 98.2 cubic feet for transporting large, bulky items.

3. Rich tech features

If you enjoy using technology to get through your day, you'll appreciate how abundant the Traverse's features are. Standard on all 2019 trims are Android Auto and Apple CarPlay integrations, as well as built-in 4G LTE WiFi® for up to seven devices. L, LS, and LT Cloth trims come standard with a seven-inch touchscreen display, but upgrading to LT Leather or higher trims will get you a motorized eight-inch touchscreen display, which has a hidden storage compartment behind it. Always forgetting your lunch or laptop in the back seat? All 2019 models feature a rear-seat reminder system, which activates once the engine is turned off to remind you to check for forgotten valuables.

4. Artful styling

The 2019 Chevrolet Traverse wears a modern design that's purposeful too. The body of the SUV features a honed exterior, which reduces wind noise for a tranquil in-cabin experience. The 2019 Premier trim also includes sophisticated chrome accents on its grille, roof rails, and lower body molding for a high-end look, while 20-inch argent metallic aluminum wheels come standard on this trim as well. Inside the 2019 Traverse, luxurious details abound, including perforated leather appointments on Premier and High Country trims. You'll also find unique suede-microfiber accents on the instrument panel and doors of the 2019 High Country trim for a touch of opulence.

5. Family-friendly interior

Even with its classy design, the 2019 Chevy Traverse is a great family vehicle. It boasts two cabin configurations to suit your need for passenger space: a seven-passenger configuration with second-row flat-folding captain's chairs (standard on 2019 LT trims and higher) or an eight-passenger layout (standard on L and LS; available on LT trims). 2019 High Country grades also feature a power-folding third-row seat that allows you to expand the cargo area with a push of a button. With 38.4 inches of second-row legroom and 33.5 inches in the third row, the 2019 Traverse is spacious enough to accommodate taller passengers. All 2019 models also include a Smart Slide® second-row seat for easier entry and exit from the SUV.
