‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house, not a creature was stirring, except for your dilapidated minivan that’s been slowly leaking oil on your garage floor since 2017. Sounds like it’s time for a new get-the-family-around-town vehicle that has room for the entire gang.
Allow us to introduce you to the carpool-ready 2020 Chevrolet Traverse. Here are 5 reasons why the latest Chevy Traverse should become the newest addition to your family this Christmas season.
5. Teen Driver
Chevy has put a premium on safety for years; the inclusion of standard Teen Driver on the Traverse is proof. (Chevy’s standardized Teen Driver across most of their lineup, actually.) The technology features a Buckle-to-Drive system that prevents the Traverse from shifting out of “Park” if the driver’s belt isn’t clicked. Additionally, the Traverse can mute audio until all front passengers are buckled in.
If you have a teenager who’s working on their learner’s permit, Teen Driver ensures you’re not throwing them to the wolves. With the system’s built-in report card, parents can monitor their teenage drivers when they’re off doing who-knows-what.
4. Traverse, Party of Eight
Family minivans used to be the ideal vehicle for large families. Those days are long gone, as newer SUVs like the Traverse can offer just as much space and amenities—but without the poor public image.
The 8-seater Chevy Traverse can accommodate most American families. Its spacious, noise-canceling cabin offers 157.3 cubic feet of room for passengers, as well as a nice set of available amenities that include: a Dual SkyScrape® 2-panel solar sunroof, heated and ventilated front seats, and a convenient Smart Slide® second-row seat (reduces capacity to 7 passengers).
3. Rear Seat Reminder
Being a new parent can be is exhausting, with a capital “E.” Your Chevy Traverse helps you in one small way: by preventing you from leaving your most precious cargo unattended in the back seat. With Rear Seat Reminder in place, your Traverse will detect if the rear doors were opened prior to any trip. If they were, the system will alert you, via audible chimes and a visual message in the instrument panel, to check the back rows.
Chevy: Always looking out for No. 2 (your family).
2. Class-Best Cargo Room
With best-in-class maximum cargo space of 98.2 cu. ft., Traverse is king of the large-SUV castle, beating even big-time rivals like the Toyota Highlander. Versatile seat configurations make it possible to switch from Game Day to Home Improvement Trip at a moment’s notice. Tremendous.
For even more space, pop open the cargo area’s underfloor storage compartment. (Plus, because the compartment’s hidden, you can keep all your valuables out of sight.)
1. Big List o’ Technology
In addition to Teen Driver and Rear Seat Reminder, the Traverse is also packed to the headliner with tech. Some notable features include:
- Hands-Free Power Liftgate – Open and close the rear tailgate with a simple kicking motion under the bumper
