The Traverse will share its basic build with the Saturn Outlook, GMC Acadia and Buick Enclave. Available in three trim levels including LS, LT and LTZ, the Traverse will also be available in both FWD and AWD configurations. The GM global 3.6L V6 unit found in several other cars will also power the new crossover, managing V8-levels of power with lower CO2 emissions.
A six-speed automatic is the only transmission available, though buyers can choose from a range of wheels, including 17, 18 and 20-inch options. A full slate of airbags, including front, side and curtain airbags cover all three rows of seating. Available features include an OnStar-based navigation system, XM Satellite Radio and Bluetooth hands-free phone functionality.
