Say Goodbye to Minivans and Hello to The New 2015 Chevrolet Traverse
Families bored with the conventional station wagons, now have an option of a car-based wagon in the form of 2015 Chevrolet Traverse. This is by far, one of the most spacious and user friendly vehicles out there in the market. It’s a great investment, particularly for people who do not want to drive boring minivans anymore. Since it’s a combination of a car and a wagon one of the major emphasis that the manufacturers have put on, is the space. The vehicle can accommodate up to 8 passengers. There are 2 seats in the front with 2 split benches of 60/40. One of the drawbacks of this vehicle is its floor is a lot higher than that of minivans and loading things isn’t as easy, although if you fold the second and third row of seats it can give you around 118 cubic feet of space.
One of the most important things for families while driving a large vehicle is safety. The 2015 Chevrolet Traverse has gone through crash tests and has come out as one of the best crash surviving vehicles. The Traverse along with GMC Acadia and Buick Enclave is one of the first vehicles in the market, containing a front center side airbag. Other prominent safety features include, rearview camera system, hill start assist (to keep you safe while you take vehicle up the hill), parking sensors and head curtain side bags along with rollover mitigation technology. The features available in the premium model are lane departure warning, collision alert system, side blind zone alert and others to help you prevent any serious accident or major injuries.
The 2015 Chevrolet Traverse is engineered and designed, keeping in mind the families who have had enough of buying those freakishly large and old station wagons that have no style to offer what so ever. The families are now looking for something that does not only give them comfort, space and safety but also a vehicle that is stylish and has its own image. The 2015 Chevrolet Traverse gives them just that. It is a tall station wagon that has a look and contains plenty of safety features along with comfort and lots of space for the passengers and cargo.
There hasn’t been a lot of change in the design of the vehicle since 2009. Although the vehicle had some changes in the front and back but it is nothing like general motor’s overly exaggerated term, “the new athletic design”. From the inside the vehicle is nothing special but it does have a lot of functions. Some changes like ambient lightning and contrast stitching were added last year.
The 2015 Chevrolet Traverse is a family oriented car and as far as the performance is concerned it wouldn’t be labeled as a fast car, although it is quick enough for the family ride. Traverse is indeed a heavy vehicle and this is why it does a little behind the wheel action to hide that. It gives you a direct injection 3.6 liter V6, which produces 288 HP and torque of 270 ft-lbs. The vehicle can also be converted in to an all-wheel drive; however it is has proved to be a little sluggish.
