The 2021 Chevrolet Traverse Is Driver’s Auto Mart Used Car of The Week!

September 19th, 2022 by


The 2021 Chevrolet Traverse is an SUV to be reckoned with, as it astounds us with its V6 engine, standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration, spacious interior, and overall competitive price for its segment. That’s precisely why this 3-row car has been chosen as Driver’s Auto Mart’s Used Car of The Week!


All Traverse models get their energy from the standard 3.6-liter V6 engine with a lively 310 horsepower and 266 torque. This motor is also matched with a 9-speed automatic transmission.  The overall fuel economy for each trim is 18/27 mpg (city/highway) for FWDs and 17/25 mpg for AWDs.


The Traverse SUV has a prominent yet opulent appearance, its detail and craftiness create a more captivating design that only advances going up the trims. Exterior features on the base L trim consist of 18-inch aluminum wheels, a compact spare tire, capless fuel fill, automatic headlights, and heated side mirrors. The LS trim parallels a lot to the L trim, besides that it includes dark-tinted rear privacy glass.

Drivers will revel in the additionally exterior features such as fog lights, automatic high-beam headlights, rear-camera mirror, chrome door handles, auto-dimming side-mirror glass, a hands-free power rear liftgate, 20-inch polished aluminum wheels, dual-pane glass sunroof, and bright front sill plates.

Exterior colors for the 2021 Traverse involve Black Cherry Metallic, Satin Steel Metallic, Silver Ice Metallic, Summit White, Mosaic Black Metallic, Stone Gray Metallic, Midnight Blue Metallic, Graphite Metallic, Iridescent Pearl Tricoat, and Cajun Red Tintcoat.

Interior and Standard Features

For the cabin, the Jet Black color is standard, however,  most models have an available Dark Galvanized/ dark grey or a Medium Ash Grey over Dark Atmosphere/brown. Standard features starting on the introductory Traverse L include 8 passenger seats with premium-cloth upholstery, triple-zone automatic climate control, cruise control, and a rear-seat reminder system.

The 2021 Chevy Traverse lineup is quite extensive, with seven trims. The most economical trim is the base L model which comes with a V6 engine and some niceties like tri-zone climate control, six USB ports, and an infotainment system with a 7-inch touchscreen display and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto integration.

Advancing a trim will bring you to the LS model, which tacks on a traction-mode select, deep-tinted rear windows, and high-intensity headlights. It’s worth noting that neither of these lower trims comes with active safety features such as automatic emergency braking and lane-keeping assist.

If possible, we recommend at least upgrading to the LT Cloth model, as it adds on a power-adjustable driver’s seat and heated outside mirrors. It’s also worth mentioning that this trim includes all of the exterior colors, as the L and LS models do not.

Seven-passenger seating is standard, while eight is optional.
