“Blind spot monitoring, forward collision warning, and lane departure warning are available, while a rearview camera comes standard,” reports U.S. News & World Report writers Matt Rand, Kevin Linder, and Isaac R. Braun. “Should an accident occur, your teen will be well-protected, as the Traverse earned a five-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA, as well as Good ratings on all crash tests conducted by the IIHS.”

The 2016 Chevy Traverse has four trim levels — LS, 1LT, 2LT, and LTZ. The standard 3.6-ltier V6 engine paired to a six-speed automatic transmission generates 281 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque. It will earn your teen an EPA-estimated rating of 17 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway.

Teen drivers will appreciate the standard features of Bluetooth phone connectivity, OnStar 4G LTE with built in Wi-Fi hotspot, 6.5-inch touch screen, and Satellite radio. The available Bose premium speaker system will flood the cabin with high-quality sound while the available systems of Chevrolet MyLink radio with Navigation, and NavTraffic will help teen drivers from getting lost and getting stuck in traffic jams.
