2015 Chevrolet Traverse Review And Changes

The 2015 Chevrolet Traverse is a crossover, which can come with seven or eight seats. It is based on GM Lambda platform together with Buick Enclave and GMC Acadia. Its production started in 2009 after the flashy debut at the Chicago Auto Show one year earlier. It came as a replacement for the TrailBlazer EXT and Chevy Uplander. It is produced in Delta Township Assembly plant in Lapsing, Michigan.

Although it is labeled as a crossover, this vehicle can also go with tall station wagon badge. Anyway it is one really family oriented vehicle that offers a lot of interior space and everything else you would expect from these types of vehicles. Since its debut Traverse received only a few minor updates in its exterior design. Last year it came with only two adjustments in its front and rear part which included slightly redesigned bumpers, grille, headlights and tail light cluster. Other than that it essentially stayed the same as the 2009 model.

The 2015 Chevrolet Traverse has a typical Chevy crossover front fascia, with three bar in the upper and two bar in the lower grille. One of the mentioned changes last year was the replacement of the old tail lamps. New ones now look like the tail lamps you can find on some Chevy muscle cars, like Camaro for example, so that’s definitely a good improvement since it gives little bit of character to this over-sedated vehicle.
