Three-row crossovers are perfect for buyers looking for the utility provided by an SUV and the ability to carry plenty of passengers. With seating for up to eight, the 2020 Chevrolet Traverse is a popular choice with large families at dealerships like the Moscow Chevrolet dealer. The Traverse provides buyers with bold exterior styling, a spacious cabin and plenty of advanced technology features. There’s ample space for hauling around a pack of kids or a load of cargo.
Changes for 2020 include a new standard V6 engine, an upgraded infotainment system and an optional navigation system. All trim levels now get a standard HD rear camera, and the option packages now have even more features than last year. Buyers of the RS, Premier and High Country trims get a standard HD Surround Vision camera that’s available in the LT Leather trim.
The 2020 Chevrolet Traverse gets praise from the automotive media as well as Moscow Chevrolet customers. Consumer Reports wrote: “After about a decade, Chevrolet finally replaced the first-generation Traverse three-row crossover with a new model that delivers on room, comfort, refinement and connectivity. Not only is it competitive with popular three-row SUVs, such as the Ford Explorer, Honda Pilot, and Toyota Highlander, it beats them in their own game. And it also serves as a viable alternative to the full-sized Chevy Suburban.”
With seven trim levels on offer, the 2020 Chevrolet Traverse offers buyers plenty of choices. They’re listed as L, LS, LT Cloth, LT Leather, RS, Premier and High Country. L and LS models get a standard second-row bench seat that provides seating for eight passengers. The LT Cloth and above get standard second-row captain’s chairs that reduce seating to seven. However, the bench seat is optional in the LT Cloth and LT Leather trims.
The 2020 Chevrolet Traverse is equipped with a 3.6-liter V6 powerplant that cranks out 310 horses and 266 lb-ft of twist, connected to a nine-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive comes standard, and all trim levels except the L can upgrade to the available all-wheel-drive system. The 2020 Chevy Traverse can pull up to 5,000 pounds without breaking a sweat.
The Traverse gets an EPA-estimated 18 mpg city/27 mpg highway with front-wheel drive.* All-wheel-drive models return 17 mpg city/25 mpg highway.
Even the base Traverse L trim gets a long list of standard features, including 18-inch painted aluminum wheels, HID headlights, power locks and windows, power heated outside mirrors, tri-zone automatic climate control, keyless open and start, and cruise control. Also standard is MyLink radio with a 7-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, Bluetooth and
an HD rearview camera.
The 2020 Chevrolet Traverse is very safe. The NHTSA gave the Traverse the top score of five stars for overall safety, while the IIHS awarded the Traverse with its highest rating of Good in all crash tests.
