Being big is the Chevy Traverse's best attribute. The interior is subpar in quality; it gets expensive quickly when you start adding safety/tech options, and the styling is drab. It drives comfortably and will transport tons of folks, but there are better options.

The 2021 Chevy Traverse is a large, three-row crossover designed for families who need to move a lot of kids and things around town. It has no faux off-roading intentions, nor does it try to cater to the crowd wanting a performance crossover. Chevy tried to make it as utilitarian as possible for folks in this market, and we think it succeeds at its intended purpose.

The styling is inoffensive, and the available tech is comparable to others in the class. There’s nothing special about the way the Traverse drives — Chevy offers a 3.6-liter V6 combined with either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. Newer entries like the Kia Telluride, Hyundai Palisade and redesigned Ford Explorer may be more attractive in many ways, but none of them best the gargantuan size of the Traverse.

There isn’t a whole lot new for the 2021 Chevy Traverse, but we already know about its mid-cycle refresh coming for the 2022 crossover. That car will get revised styling and improved tech. Chevy hasn’t announced any official changes, but the 2021 Traverse is simply carry-over from 2020.

The 2020 Chevy Traverse is offered in seven trim levels: L, LS, LT Cloth, LT Leather, RS, Premier and High Country. Many desirable options enter the picture in the LT Leather trim, with a suite of safety equipment, power liftgate, heated and powered seats plus a larger infotainment screen. The V6 makes 310 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque. It’s mated to a nine-speed automatic. Fuel economy is just OK for its class: The front-wheel-drive Traverse is rated at 21 mpg combined, and the all-wheel-drive Traverse is rated at 20 mpg. Keep in mind that the Traverse is larger than all of its competitors, though.
