The 2012 Chevy Traverse has everything you want in a full-size crossover – incredible styling, seating for up to eight passengers, a powerful engine and lots of space for both passengers and cargo. Similar to most other crossovers of its class, the Traverse is available with a choice of front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive across all trim models.
The 2012 Traverse comes equipped with a direct-injected 3.6-liter 6-cylinder engine. In the LS and LT trims, this engine produces 281 horsepower and 266 foot pounds of torque. In the LTZ, the 3.6-liter gains an extra 7 horsepower and 4 foot pounds of torque. A six-speed automatic transmission is paired with this engine, delivering an EPA estimated 17 MPG city and 24 MPG highway on front-wheel drive models.
The Traverse handles well for a full-size crossover, given its fully independent suspension. It also has many of the car like manners that most buyers value in the crossover. The Traverse comes standard with the StabiliTrak electronic traction control and stability control for improved traction and grip on wet road surfaces.
While the base LS trim is relatively well equipped, most buyers will go for the mid-range LT or the top-of-the-line LTZ. Both trims come packed with standard features that are not available on the base LS, including leather-appointed seats, dual-zone climate control, a power passenger seat, power liftgate and remote start. There is plenty of head, hip and shoulder room for both second and third row passengers and with over 116 cubic feet of cargo volume, buyers of the 2012 Chevy Traverse will be able to load up for those long distance trips.
