Convenience Around Every Corner
Traverse was redesigned from the rubber to the roof. With a beautiful exterior and a spacious interior, the 2013 Traverse offers you the ability to set yourself apart with style, while allowing you to carry everything you need – thanks to class-leading maximum cargo space. A standard rear vision back-up camera and available Side Blind Zone Alert help you stay aware of your surroundings. Step into this reimagined masterpiece, and enjoy getting to your destination.
A Reimagined Exterior to Inspire Classic Double Takes
The exterior of the completely reimagined 2013 Traverse inspires. The clean lines naturally carry the eyes from the front fascia to the newly designed rear liftgate. Your gaze follows the chrome beltline molding and other accents with ease.
Exciting color options pair perfectly with great styling. Accent your Traverse with bold colors, including the newly introduced Atlantis Blue Metallic, Champagne Silver Metallic and Tungsten Metallic. Don’t be surprised when your Traverse turns heads just as easily as it turns corners.
An Interior Designed to Adapt
Traverse was redesigned to elevate interior styling and offer new levels of comfort for drivers and passengers alike. Refined materials and additional seating space give your Traverse a comfortable interior, letting you feel more at home when on the road. Available ambient lighting casts a cozy glow throughout the cabin for nighttime driving. A new standard 6.5" diagonal color touch-screen radio with a rear vision camera helps you spot obstacles you might otherwise miss. Available heated and cooled seats for driver and front passenger keep you comfortable while you’re getting there.
Full-Size Third Row
Traverse has room for all aspects of your life: from carpooling and longer trips, to a night out with friends. Designed with comfort for every passenger in mind, Traverse features a third row that’s even comfortable for adults. Smart Slide® second-row seating makes this space simple to access – just slide the seat out of the way with one hand, and enjoy the convenience of a full-size third row.
Traverse has the most cargo space in its class: an incredible 116.3 cubic feet. That’s about 335 footballs. Available split-folding rear seats give you even more versatile cargo options, and are perfect for adapting on the fly. Traverse also boasts best-in-class space behind the third row, so you’ll never struggle finding room for any trip.
We made sure to think of the small details, like adding up to 12 cup holders and multiple storage units throughout the cabin to make juggling keys, coffee, and kids a little easier. But we didn’t forget the big details, like large door handles that are easy for every passenger to grab, child and adult alike. Big or little, you’re sure to enjoy your Traverse in comfort.
Go Far With Every Fill-Up
Traverse lets you go farther between fill-ups, thanks to an estimated 8.4L/100km, giving you a range of up to 837 highway kilometers. What's more, the standard Direct Injection 3.6L V6 engine in LS and LT delivers 281 horsepower, while it delivers 288 horsepower in LTZ. That's ample power to merge with confidence in highway traffic.
Power and Grace
Traverse gives you the power to carry up to 8 people or haul the maximum amount of cargo in its class on a regular basis, and do it efficiently. The Direct Injection 3.6L V6 engine with standard six-speed automatic transmission provides quiet shifting and smooth acceleration while contributing to impressive highway fuel economy – an estimated 8.4L/100km (FWD).
Safety Before, During and After a Crash
The 2013 Chevrolet Traverse is designed to help you avoid crashes and protect you in the event a collision happens.
Whether you're on the highway or simply backing up, Traverse has technology like StabiliTrak® Electronic Stability Control System with traction control, designed to improve vehicle stability on most road surfaces, especially during emergency maneuvers. The available rearview camera system and Ultrasonic Rear Parking Assist help you see - and alert you to - stationary objects behind your Traverse, while the available integrated blind spot mirrors enhance visibility along the sides.
Every Traverse comes standard with six air bags, including dual-stage frontal air bags, driver and front-seat passenger seat-mounted side-impact air bags and head-curtain side-impact air bags for all three rows. In other words, you and your passengers are surrounded in safety.
The unsurpassed security of the OnStar® Directions & Connections® plan (standard for the first six months) includes Automatic Crash Response. In a collision, an Advisor is immediately connected into your vehicle and can request that emergency help be sent to your exact GPS location, even if you can't respond.
