The Chevrolet Traverse received a facelift for 2013. It is a crossover wagon that combines the functionality of a minivan with the look of an SUV, offering three rows of seating for up to eight passengers. The design consists of polished aluminium roof rails, projector beam headlights, LED taillights and a rear spoiler. It has a 3.6-litre V6 with variable valve timing, mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission, with either front-wheel-drive or optional all-wheel-drive system with no low range. The interior features a "low and away" instrument panel and a Smart Slide second-row feature allows easier access to the third row. Features include power windows, CD/MP3 stereo with six speakers, electric mirrors, keyless entry and more. Optional features include 6.5 inches touch screen for navigation, entertainment and display vehicle information, rear-seat DVD entertainment, HID headlights, sunroof, parking sensors, leather seats, tri-zone climate control and more. Standard safety features includes StabiliTrak stability control system with rollover mitigation technology, six airbags and a tyre-pressure-monitoring system. Also standard is power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering, 18-inch wheels with optional 19-inchers, and four-wheel disc brakes with ABS.
