2019 Chevrolet Traverse Walk Around

Despite adoption of design themes from Chevrolet’s truck division as part of its 2018 redesign, the current-generation Traverse looks sharp while providing a family-focused experience. Relationships to full-size pickups and SUVs aren’t difficult to spot. Previously graceful body lines have been sharpened.

More upright than the previous-generation model, the Traverse leads off with a taller grille, encompassing a larger “bowtie” badge. Strong shoulder lines lead toward slender taillights, carrying the overall boxy profile all the way through the bodysides.


Bountiful cabin space is a strong point of the Traverse, which promises adult-level comfort in any of the three seating rows. Even the third row offers abundant room, though elbow room is on the scant side.

Smart controls and a wide console should impress the driver, and everybody might admire the soft-touch surfaces and durable plastic materials.

Front seats promise long-distance comfort, even for occupants who are ample in girth. Second-row captain’s chairs are particularly appealing. Second-row passengers face more than 38 inches of leg clearance, while rear-seat riders get 33 inches.

Wide-swinging doors ease entry and exit, though they can present a challenge in tight parking lots. Fit and finish generally are good, though Buick’s Enclave has a more premium feel. Most Traverse versions have active noise cancellation.

Behind the third row, there’s a generous 23 cubic feet of cargo room. With the third row flattened, that space passes 58 cubic feet, reaching 98 cubic feet with only the front seatbacks upright.
