Chevrolet's Traction Mode Select is standard and lets you tune the SUV to current driving conditions. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity are standard, as is 4G LTE connectivity and a Wi-Fi hot spot (data subscription required after initial trial period).

2019 Chevy Traverse

I bought the Traverse used, and I couldn’t be happier with this Chevrolet! The gas mileage is great for such a big vehicle! It’s smooth and Quiet, and does long distances very well! We went from Atlanta to Houston and got 29 mpg average combined driving! On some Texas roads it still rides a bit like a truck when sleeping in back, but so smooth and quiet when roads are not broken up!
