Exterior

Aesthetics may not be a priority for all car buyers, but few customers would deny that they're partly seeking style when purchasing an SUV. The rugged, athletic look of the 2016 Traverse will turn heads and you can accentuate the athleticism with a variety of color options.

Of course, style isn't the only important factor when it comes to a vehicle's exterior, as it's also essential to recognize a car's mechanics. Luckily, there's nothing to worry about on the 2016 Traverse. The V6 engine offers a whole lot of power, and it does so without completely compromising efficiency.

Sure, you may be able to find a more luxurious exterior elsewhere, or perhaps there's an engine with a bit more power. However, you won't find another SUV that has a similar combination of both these attributes.

Stylish Design

The Traverse is certainly the picture that comes to mind when you're thinking of your typical SUV. The staunch, muscular body looks just as athletic as similar vehicles, but not as boxy. Instead, the exterior is accented by grooves and curves, as well as its sudden stark lines.

Best of all, buyers have considerable cosmetic options for their 2016 Traverse. There are a number of available color options, including: Silver Ice Metallic, Summit White, Blue Velvet Metallic, Champagne Silver Metallic, Mosaic Black Metallic, Tungsten Metallic, Siren Red Tintcoat and Iridescent Pearl Tricoat.

Deceptively Powerful Engine

If you're looking to keep up with your fellow drivers on the highway, the 3.6-liter V6 engine provides all of the necessary muscle. The unit pumps out excellent horsepower (281 or 288) and torque (266 or 270 pounds-feet), and despite the power, drivers can still expect a fuel economy that lingers around 15 city/22 highway miles per gallon.

Those power specs also play a significant role in the incredible 5,200-pound towing capacity. If you're looking to haul a trailer or boat, it's certainly possible with the 2016 Traverse.

Chevy Traverse Safety
2016 Chevy Traverse Safety

Safety

SUVs are reliable family vehicles and parents obviously want to keep their children safe. The plethora of preventative and protective safe features in the 2016 Chevy Traverse will do just that.

In fact, you can take the experts' word for it. The SUV earned a perfect five-star safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, while the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety handed out the best-possible rating in each of its four tests (moderate overlap front, side, roof strength, and head restraints/seats). Needless to say, the vehicle really could not have tested much better.

Preventative Features

The 2016 Chevy Traverse offers several safety features that should prevent you from getting in an accident in the first place. These functions help improve traction and control, providing just enough assistance to keep you out of harm's way.

The StabiliTrak Electronic Stability Control System (with Traction Control) will assure that your Traverse is traveling on its intended path. While some vehicles may slide due to icy roads or get pushed around by strong winds, the Traverse will hold its place and continue on its way.

Meanwhile, the Side Blind Zone Alert will notify the driver when it's unsafe to switch lanes, preventing the Traverse from colliding with a vehicle in the driver's blindspot. The Rear Cross Traffic Alert plays a similar role, alerting a reversing driver of any approaching vehicles. Finally, the Forward Collision Alert will determine when an accident appears to be inevitable. The system will notify the driver if he or she is approaching another vehicle too rapidly, providing the driver with enough time to apply the brakes.

Protective Features

Even with the assortment of safety features, accidents aren't completely avoidable. You still may find yourself in a collision, but luckily, the 2016 Traverse should keep the vehicle's occupants safe and sound.

For starters, the vehicle is composed of high-strength steel, meaning potential damage should be minimized. Plus, the material is capable of absorbing the energy caused by the impact, keeping it away from the passengers. The six standard airbags (including the industry-first front center air bag) will provide everyone with enough padding, and the Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children system will keep the younger occupants securely in place.

If you find yourself in an emergency, OnStar's Automatic Crash Response system will pair the driver with an OnStar Advisor. Using the GPS location of your Traverse, this advisor can send emergency personnel to the crash site as soon as possible.

Interior

When all is said and done, you're going to want a cabin that offers lots of amenities. The 2016 Chevy Traverse certainly delivers in that regard, providing enough technology and room to delight drivers and passengers.

The technology is highlighted by the 6.5-inch color touchscreen, providing access to a number of applications. Meanwhile, the incredible 116.3-cubic-feet of cargo space provides more than enough room to fit all of your equipment.

Are you seeking spaciousness and technology from your new SUV? You don't have to look any further than the 2016 Chevy Traverse.

Spaciousness

You'll presumably be using your SUV to haul around cargo or equipment. Fortunately, owners won't have any issues loading or fitting all of their supplies in the new Traverse.

The vehicle's Smart Slide second-row seats allow for easy access to the third row, and drivers can also opt for second-row flat-folding captain's chairs. This allows for maximum flexibility, as drivers can better take advantage of the incredible 116.3-cubic-feet of maximum cargo space (or 24.4-cubic-feet behind the third row). Thanks to the inclusion of the power-remote tailgate, drivers don't have to fumble with their keys to access the back of their SUV.

Technological Amenities

The Traverse offers an array of technological features to improve your overall enjoyment of the SUV. In particular, the impressive MyLink system provides drivers with access to a number of helpful applications via the 6.5-inch diagonal color touchscreen.

Drivers can jam out to their favorite tunes via the SiriusXM Satellite Radio, or they can utilize the OnStar Turn-by-Turn Navigation system to find their way through a tricky neighborhood. Best of all, drivers can connect their iPhone to the system, allowing them to make phone calls or access contacts. Drivers can even use Siri's Eyes-Free capabilities, so they can access all of these functions without taking their hands off the wheel.
