5 reasons to buy the 2021 Chevrolet Traverse

1. Third-row seating

Looking for an SUV that's large enough to accommodate a growing family? The 2021 Traverse has you covered with three rows of standard seating. Its base L trim comes with a second-row bench seat to accommodate up to eight passengers comfortably. Meanwhile, stepping up to the LT Cloth trim yields second-row captain's chairs, which reduces seating capacity to seven but still offers plenty of space for larger groups.

2. Available all-wheel drive

The 2021 Traverse is exclusively equipped with a 3.6L V6 engine at 310 hp, which is paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive. However, if you're looking for something with a little more traction and control, this model comes with optional all-wheel drive on all trims. Choosing a model with AWD is a great option for those who frequently traverse less-than-ideal road conditions.

3. Plenty of trim configurations

Speaking of trims, the 2010 Traverse is available in an impressive array of seven configurations: the base L, LS, LT Cloth, LT Leather, RS, Premier, and range-topping High Country. With so many options to choose from, there's sure to be a Traverse for every driver. Looking for something with just the basics? The L trim offers tri-zone climate control and a seven-inch touchscreen. Need something with more indulgent equipment? Take a look at the LT Leather, which boasts a convenient power liftgate, heated front seats, and driver-assistance like blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert.

4. Versatile cargo space

Whether you need more space for passengers or cargo, the 2021 Traverse offers plenty of versatility. With all three rows in place, you'll still enjoy 23.0 cu-ft of dedicated cargo space behind the third row. For more room, fold down the second and third rows to reveal a whopping 98.2 cu-ft of storage.

5. Lots of tech features

This large SUV is loaded with tech features to make your life easier, ranging from a standard seven-inch touchscreen display on its base L trim to smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto. Stepping up to the High Country trim yields additional tech features, like adaptive cruise control and wireless device charging.
