Chevrolet Traverse 2012 Review, Specs – The 2012 Chevrolet Traverse as forgettable as any minivan, though, and the same holds true for the interior–it’s functional, but not exciting, by any means, and the sheets of hard, dull plastic that wrap the dash and doors could use an upgrade. You may also see the 2013 Chevrolet Avalanche for your information. The design influence from other Chevy products is clear, especially up front where a Malibu-like split grille sits tall. Performance is quick and competent. There’s only one drivetrain offered, a direct-injection 3.6-liter V-6 engine coupled to a six-speed automatic transmission.
All 2012 Traverse crossovers come with a tilt/telescopic wheel; power windows, locks and mirrors; cruise control; Bluetooth; and an AM/FM/XM/CD sound system. Major options include the rearview camera; a power liftgate; heated and cooled front seats; and a DVD entertainment system. The top-spec LTZ can be equipped with 20-inch aluminum wheels; a rear spoiler; dual exhausts; and a panoramic sunroof.
