Some of the best cars in the market today are manufactured by Chevrolet. When you purchase a Chevrolet vehicle, you expect class, power, and economy. One of the best things about Chevy vehicles is that they are comfortable to drive. Even though the company is generally known for their large pickup trucks and SUVs, there are other vehicles in their fleet that are sure to impress. One such vehicle is the Traverse. It is a crossover type vehicle and it boasts of class and comfort. The 2015 Chevrolet Traverse is without a doubt one of the best crossover vehicles you can get your hands on. Let’s look at the 2015 Chevrolet Traverse in detail:

Engine Specifications

When it comes to a Chevy vehicle, you can be sure that the engine emits significant power. Even though all the trims of the 2015 Chevrolet Traverse house the same engine variant, you can expect nothing but immense power. The standard engine across all Traverse variants is a V-type with 6 cylinders. This engine has a capacity of 3.6 liters. One would expect an engine of its stature to provide power and lower gas mileage. However, Chevy has made sure that you not only get power, but economy as well.

Engine Performance

The 3.6-liter V-6 engine of the 2015 Chevrolet Traverse does in fact deliver a significant amount of power. The engine is rated to produce a staggering 281 ponies and 266 pounds of torque per feet. This is due to the direct injection system. Most cars with larger engines do not use such a fuel delivery system. Due to this, they are not able to generate a lot of power. In addition to this, the direct injection system also helps in delivering extra miles to each gallon. In spite of the power that this engine delivers, you can get up to 17 miles to a gallon if you are driving within the city. Driving on the highway gets you more miles. You can get up to 24 miles to each gallon while driving on the highway. So, in essence, you are not only getting immense power, but also excellent gas mileage, which is a rare combination.

Transmission Options

The transmission of the 2015 Chevrolet Traverse is a 6-speed auto. This transmission provides a seamless gear shift and excellent gear ratios. The model number of the transmission is CV14526. Even though transmission is standard on the AWD variants, it is available for the FWD variant as well.

Interior Styling

The first thing that you will notice about the interior is the space. You can easily seat up to 8 passengers in the 2015 Chevrolet Traverse. When it comes to typical crossover type vehicles, they only have one row of seats behind the front ones. But in the case of the 2015 Chevrolet Traverse, there are two rows. One may be led to believe that there would be less cargo space. However, the seats at the end can be folded which provides you with significant space for cargo as well. This makes the Traverse suitable for large families as well.

Exterior Design

The exterior design of the 2015 Chevrolet Traverse has not seen significant design changes. Of course, there are many fresh aspects to the design. The grille of the Traverse has been revised and there is a slight change in the headlamp design.

All in all, the 2015 Chevrolet Traverse is spacious, classy, and provides excellent features. Even the safety features of this crossover vehicle are top of the line.
