Overview2015 CHEVROLET TRAVERSE
The 2015 Chevrolet Traverse is a large, crossover SUV that provides ample room without sacrificing its sense of style. It's perfect for group trips, large families, and those who just want a little extra wiggle room. Inside the cabin, you'll find three rows of seating, plenty of legroom, and durable upholstery all situated alongside a slew of other great features. If practicality is what you're after, the 2015 Chevrolet Traverse could be just the model for you.
Tilt and Telescoping Steering WheelThis model has a great steering wheel with dual adjustment capabilities. Telescoping has become a valued feature within newer vehicles. It allows drivers to not only adjust tilt but also to adjust the distance of the wheel. These adjustment capabilities go a long way toward reducing arm and wrist fatigue during longer drives. On used LTZ trims, the steering wheel even has a built-in heating mechanism.
Rearview CameraThe rearview camera found in the Chevrolet Traverse makes "close calls" when backing up a thing of the past. This camera provides a live-stream view of the area behind the vehicle. By offering a wider range of sight, it works with defensive driving practices to reduce the chances of fender benders caused by blind spots.
USB Audio InterfaceIn addition to the standard auxiliary jack present in most vehicles, this model features a state-of-the-art USB audio interface. It allows passengers to hear the music that they want when they want without the need to purchase an auxiliary cord. No matter how you choose to play your music in the Traverse, you'll be pleased with its sound quality thanks to its six-speaker sound system.
Average MileageThe 2015 Chevrolet Traverse is an average performer when it comes to gas mileage. Drivers can expect to get 19 mpg. For a vehicle of its size, most would argue that there's nothing wrong with this number, but if you're looking to maximize your fuel savings you may wish to pursue other similar models that have slightly better ratings in this area.
Shifting Could Be QuickerThis model features a 3.6 Liter V6 engine and 6-speed automatic transmission. The system does the job just fine in day-to-day traffic, but some drivers report that it can feel a bit sluggish in its shifting response when operating at peak speeds. If you frequently travel out of your city and spend a lot of time on freeways and interstates, you may want to take this into consideration.
Touch Sensitive Console ButtonsThe Chevrolet Traverse features a 6.5-inch touch screen infotainment system. It's a great feature that enhances passenger experience in a variety of ways, but its buttons could use some improvement. Many have reported that they are quite sensitive to touch, which can lead to accidental pressing and errors if you're attempting to quickly access something on the console.
