The Chevy Traverse was introduced in 2008 along with its GM-brand cousins, including the GMC Acadia and Saturn Outlook (later discontinued).
The Traverse is a full-size but car-based SUV riding on GM’s “Lambda” platform. It comes with third-row seating and is primarily geared toward families that do not want a minivan or a large truck-based SUV like the Tahoe (the latter is primarily for fuel-economy/environmental concerns).
The Traverse comes with a 3.6L V6 engine that’s paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. It’s rated at 17mpg in the city and 24mpg on the highway.
In the Traverse owners manual, you’ll find operating instructions for the vehicle’s various systems, including electronics, navigation (if equipped) and entertainment. Maintenance schedules and related information are also included in the manual.
