2013 Chevrolet Traverse Drives Circles Around Competition with Standard Third Row
Slowly but surely, the population of the minivan has decreased, thanks to the popularity of crossover utility vehicles. The main culprit in the depletion of Chevrolet’s minivan lineup? The 2013 Chevy Traverse, a car that’s got the kind of space expected in a minivan with the sleeker body.
The 2013 Traverse blows its competition out of the parking lot with standard features that are normally options on competition. For those minivan converts, it has standard third row seating with plenty of leg space for the whole family. If you’re looking for a bit of technology to jazz up your life, check out the Traverse’s standard review camera system. Interested in safety? How about standard head curtain airbags? All of these standard features and more are available for a price much lower than expected.
There’s no lack of kick in the engine of the 2013 Traverse either. Each model comes with Chevy’s most powerful available engine, a 3.6 liter V6 that has continuously variable valve timing. This means that the Traverse gets 17 mpg city and 24 mpg highway, while still producing 288 BHP and 270 ft.-lbs of torque.
It’s safe to say that Chevy customers aren’t going to be missing their minivans anytime soon. Check out the 2013 Traverse’s spacious third row seating at your local dealership now!
