Other than the addition of Siri Eyes Free voice control technology to models equipped with the MyLink infotainment system, the 2015 Chevy Traverse remains unchanged.


2015 Chevy Traverse Exterior

The 2015 Chevy Traverse combines sleek crossover style with large SUV capability. The Traverse features a handsome exterior with bold lines and an aggressive stance. The versatile large crossover comes standard with 17-inch steel wheels, automatic headlights, roof rails, a rear spoiler, and keyless entry.

2015 Chevy Traverse Performance

The 2015 Traverse LS and LT trim levels come standard with a 3.6-liter V6 engine that puts out 281 hp and 266 lb-ft of torque. The LTZ’s dual exhaust outlets increase output up to 288 hp and 270 lb-ft. The Traverse comes with a standard six-speed transmission, and drivers have the choice of all-wheel or front-wheel drive.

2015 Chevy Traverse Efficiency

The Traverse receives EPA fuel economy estimates of 17 mpg city, 24 mpg highway, and 19 mpg combined for front-wheel-drive models, while all-wheel-drive models get 16 mpg city, 23 mpg highway, and 19 mpg combined – making it competitive in this segment.

2015 Chevy Traverse Interior

The 2015 Chevy Traverse’s roomy cabin features high-quality, soft-touch materials and available seating for up to eight passengers across three rows. The Traverse stands out with its cavernous interior cargo space when the rear seats are folded down – the 116.3 cubic feet of cargo space is beat by no other SUV.

The standard Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system includes navigation and smartphone integration through the 6.5-inch touchscreen display. Also standard is a rearview camera, Bluetooth, USB/iPod audio interface, and two additional USB charge-only ports.


2015 Chevy Traverse Safety

The 2015 Chevy Traverse comes standard with four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, traction and stability control, a rear-view camera, OnStar, front-seat side airbags, and full-length side curtain airbags. Standard on some models and optional in others are a unique center airbag, rear parking sensors, a blind-spot and rear cross-traffic monitoring system, and forward-collision alert and lane-departure warning systems.

The Traverse earned the highest possible overall rating of five stars in governmental crash tests, making it a choice you can have confidence in.
