GM to launch 2009 Chevrolet Traverse in Q3Enlarge Photo
The Traverse will be built at GM’s Spring Hill plant in Tennessee and according to the carmaker’s NA sales Chief, Mark LaNeve, who spoke recently with the Detroit Free Press, sales numbers for the vehicle could be as high 100,000 units per year.
GM’s other crossover models have been well received. Monthly sales for the new Outlook and Arcadia have more than doubled since the beginning of last year. Their popularity has been increasing mostly because they offer owners a vehicle with car-like dynamics and fuel-efficiency but with the interior space of traditional SUVs, highly sought after traits in a world of rising fuel prices and increasingly congested cities.
