No matter what you’re looking for in your next mid-size SUV, there’s a very good chance that the 2021 Chevy Traverse will feel like a perfect fit. That’s not just our opinion: it’s the consensus of the experts, as stated in the latest round of Chevy Traverse reviews! We’ve covered the broad strokes from all of the biggest names in automotive news, so you can proceed to your test drive with confidence.

Chevrolet Traverse Reviews: Highlights

Positive appraisals of this recently redesigned midsize SUV are very easy to come by:

  • The experts at the U.S. News, summing up this vehicle’s achievements, note that “It has a capable V6 engine, gets decent gas mileage, and provides a cushioned ride, even over rough roads. Few SUVs in any class have as much cargo space, and the Traverse can accommodate adults in all three rows. The infotainment tech is user-friendly as well.”
  • Kelley Blue Book highlights a lot of the same features: “The Chevrolet Traverse is a tempting vehicle for families, thanks to its extra interior room and a starting price that undercuts most competitors. We also like its standard V6 engine, the ability to tow up to 5,000 pounds, and seating for seven or eight passengers.”
  • Those at Edmunds round things out with a look at the dimensions that make the Traverse so capable and versatile: “The Traverse offers abundant space for adults, child seats, water bottles and whatever else you can think of. There’s 23 cubic feet of luggage space behind the upright third row, which is more than what most rivals offer.”

What Makes the Traverse a Fan Favorite?

The 2021 Chevy Equinox offers seating for up to eight passengers–more than most rivals–and it also comes equipped with a vast assortment of luxuries and technologies. Features including an 8-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay®, and Android Auto™ are standard right from the start, but that’s not all.

Where most large SUVs feel sluggish on Noblesville and Westfield highways, the Traverse lets you pull out all the stops:

  • According to Motor Trend, “The Chevrolet Traverse flies further under the radar than most mid-size three-row crossovers, but that doesn’t mean it has little to offer families. Along with a quiet ride, it boasts sharp handling and more cargo space than its competitors—mostly because it’s huge. (And buyers looking to haul people and cargo will never turn down more space.)”

Although we think that the new Chevy Traverse is the best model yet, even a used Traverse can be a good fit for many families.

Traverse Safety Ratings

Even in terms of safety, the Traverse exceeds expectations. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave it a 5-star overall safety rating, partly because every model offers Teen Driver technology and a rearview camera. What’s more, everything from blind spot monitoring to rear parking sensors are available for Carmel drivers who decide to upgrade.
