2014 CHEVROLET TRAVERSE: With minor refinements, the Chevrolet Traverse rolls in to 2014 as an ideal crossover-utility vehicle with class-leading three-row seating for up to eight adults, and more cargo-carrying capacity than any other vehicle in its segment. Once again, the Traverse is offered in LS, 1LT, 2LT and LTZ trim levels, in both front-wheel and all-wheel drive configurations. Powertrain includes the 3.6-liter V-6 with fuel-saving direct injection technology and continuously variable valve timing, mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. With single exhaust the V-6 is rated at 266 horsepower, and 270 hp with dual pipes. These set-ups offer a towing capacity of up to 5,200 pounds. Traverse’s exterior design is centered around its Chevrolet heritage, with the classic gold bowtie positioned on a three-bar grille. The athletic exterior of Traverse incorporates distinctive front and rear fascias and includes a power dome hood, streamlined headlamps and fog lamps, chrome accents and sculpted front corners. Offered with 17-, 18- and 20-inch wheels designs to complement the sleek lines and stance of the exterior. At the rear are stylish taillights, and the license plate pocket positioned in the new power liftgate offers a sportier look. Exterior colors for 2014 include Silver Ice, White, Cyber Gray, Crystal Red Tint Coat, and White Diamond. If you prefer a metallic finish there are shades called: Tungsten, Atlantic Blue, Champagne Silver and Black Granite. Upgraded interior can be ordered in cloth or leathers seating in three color choices. Soft-touch surfaces compose the instrument panel and front door uppers. Chrome and silver accents compliment the blue ambient lighting that flows through the cabin.
