Research 2020 Chevrolet Traverse - Maquoketa IA

Vehicle Overview

The Chevrolet Traverse has been around since 2008 as a full-size crossover SUV during its first production cycle, then classified as a midsize crossover SUV in its second and current production cycle. The 2020 model year finds the Traverse at the upper echelons of its class: thanks to a refined infotainment system, lots of interior space, and a smooth ride. The 2020 Chevrolet Traverse is split into L, LS, LT, RS, Premier, and High Country trims.

Standard exterior features on the 2020 Traverse include automatic on/off HID headlights, LED taillights, heated power side mirrors, and 18-inch alloy wheels.

The 2020 Chevrolet Traverse has three rows of seats. However, for the maximum occupancy of eight people, go with the lower-level L or LS trim, which includes a bench-style seat in the second row. On the other four trim levels, the second row has a pair of captain’s seats instead, thus keeping maximum occupancy at seven. Passenger volume is measured at 157.3 cubic feet, and standard cargo volume—measured from the third row to the liftgate—is measured at 23 cubic feet. (Cargo volume with the third-row seats folded down is 57.8 cubic feet and is maximized at 98.2 cubic feet with both second- and third-row seats folded down.) Notably, the LT is the only trim that offers a choice between cloth and leather upholstery; the choices are known as LT Cloth and LT Leather, respectively.) The LT gets a leather-wrapped steering wheel and 8-way power adjustability and power lumbar support on the driver’s seat.

A garage-door opener and a three-month trial subscription to SiriusXM radio is introduced at the LT trim level, with the LT Leather variant getting further enhancements such as remote start, a 4.2-inch color driver information center (in place of the smaller, monochromatic 3.5-inch), an 8-inch color HD touchscreen (instead of the 7-inch), and the brand-new 360L platform to go along with the SiriusXM radio service. The RS gets auto-dimming ability on the rearview mirror, 8-inch color HD touchscreen navigation, and a 10-speaker Bose stereo system. The Premier and High Country have wireless charging ability. The entire cabin is fortified with Active Noise Cancellation acoustic technology to block and absorb sound, as well as dampen and eliminate vibrations.

The 2020 Chevrolet Traverse comes with four-wheel disc brakes to enforce short stopping distances. The crossover’s fully independent “Ride and Handling” suspension—which consists of MacPherson strut coil springs in the front and a 5-link design in the rear—is tuned to optimize handling and smoothness on the road.

Powertrain - Chevrolet Traverse specs in Maquoketa IA

Powering the 2020 Traverse is a 3.6-liter V6 engine, which produces 310 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque. It is now the standard engine, since the 2.0-liter turbo inline 4-cylinder that powered lower-tier trims is now gone. The V6 engine includes stop/start technology, which means that the engine automatically shuts down when the vehicle comes to a complete stop and turns back on when the brake pedal is let up; this eliminates engine idling and helps the Traverse achieve better fuel economy. The V6 is paired with a 9-speed automatic transmission, and a heavy-duty cooling system is added on the Premier and High Country trims. Notably, the base-level L trim is the only one restricted to the standard front-wheel drivetrain and the High Country is the only trim with standard all-wheel drive. The other trims give you a choice between the two drivetrains. With the all-wheel drivetrain, Chevrolet adds trailering equipment—including a trailer hitch and hitch guidance for properly lining up to it—to take full advantage of the crossover’s maximum tow rating of 5,000 lbs.

The LT Leather gets additional lane change alert with side blind zone alert, rear cross-traffic alert, and rear park assist. The RS level welcomes automatic emergency braking, lane keep assist with lane departure warning, automatic emergency braking, forward collision alert, front pedestrian braking, and HD surround vision (instead of the rearview camera). A following distance indicator is added on the Premier. Exclusive to the High Country are an automatic emergency braking system enhanced by being able to stop the vehicle at low speeds and adaptive cruise control instead of cruise control.
