2017 Chevrolet Traverse Performance Capabilities


When you’re looking for an affordably priced large crossover SUV that has the commanding V6 performance you crave, check out the 2017 Chevrolet Traverse. With available all-wheel drive and a maximum towing capacity of 5,200 pounds, the Traverse has everything you could want in SUV performance, all with an MSRP from $28,700. Come take a test drive of the newest Chevrolet Traverse at Tom Gill Chevrolet in Florence to see if this is the right crossover SUV for you.



Every version of the 2017 Chevrolet Traverse comes standard with a 3.6L V6 engine, which is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. On the LS and LT trim levels, this powertrain is good for a total output of 281 hp and 266 lb-ft of torque. If you decide to go with the top-of-the-line Premier trim, though, you’ll get a dual exhaust system that help deliver a performance boost up to 288 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque.

Drivetrain Options

If you opt for the base LS trim, you’ll get front-wheel drive, while all other models are offered with an all-wheel drive system. The latter gives you improved traction on difficult terrain and in inclement weather like snow, rain, sleet, and ice.

Fuel Economy


No matter whether you choose the LS, LT, or Premier trim level, and whether you decide to go with a front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive drivetrain, you’ll get the same EPA-estimated fuel economy numbers of 22 mpg highway and 15 mpg city.

Towing Capacity and Cargo Storage

When you buy a large crossover SUV, there’s a good chance you’re looking for a vehicle that can handle tugging a big load behind it for family adventures. With the 2017 Chevrolet Traverse, you won’t have any trouble hauling a trailer or small boat. That’s because this crossover SUV is offered with an available Trailering Package, which includes everything you need to haul large items behind you. In fact, when properly equipped with an all-wheel drivetrain and the Trailering Package, the Traverse can tow up to 5200 pounds.

On top of that, the Traverse can handle enormous loads on the inside, including a maximum cargo load of 116.3 cubic feet and a maximum seating capacity of eight passengers.
