The new Chevrolet Traverse has been revised to look more athletic, what with its sharp angles and black accents all over the body, but it is still pretty much a jacked-up minivan. It is not a bad thing, of course. It means you get all the practicality you want, but none of the embarrassment of driving a minivan. This new ad for the 2013 Traverse tries to put the car’s practicality in perspective.
There are lots of family-friendly features packed into the Chevy Traverse. It offers 24.4 cu. ft. (691 liters) of cargo room behind its third row, which is larger than many full-size utility vehicles, easy-to-operate safety belts, up to 12 cup holders and an available rear-seat entertainment system.
Power comes from a 288 horsepower (215 Nm) and 270 lb.-ft. of torque (366 Nm) 3.6 liter V6, mated to a six-speed automatic transmission.
