The 2021 Chevrolet Traverse is a full-size, three-row SUV that offers plenty of room for passengers to stretch out and stay comfortable. With seating for up to eight, the Traverse is the perfect SUV for large families or anyone who needs to transport large groups of people. There’s plenty of cargo space, too, so you can take along everything you need for the ride. According to the Cottonwood Chevrolet dealer, the Traverse also gets excellent fuel economy for a vehicle in its class.
We’ll examine the different Traverse trim levels and discover what each one brings to the table.
Traverse Trim Levels
Buyers at dealerships like Cottonwood Chevrolet can get the 2021 Chevrolet Traverse in one of seven trim levels: L, LS, LT Cloth, LT Leather, RS, Premier and High Country. The Traverse is powered by a 3.6-liter V6 engine that puts out a satisfying 310 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque, paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission. The range-topping High Country trim comes with all-wheel drive. The other models get standard front-wheel drive and optional all-wheel drive, except the base L trim, which is front-wheel drive only.
The Traverse L trim gets standard features that include 18-inch painted aluminum wheels, power locks and windows, tri-zone automatic climate control, power heated outside mirrors, HID headlights, keyless open and start, and cruise control. Other standard features include a 7-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, Bluetooth, an HD rearview camera and the Teen Driver system.
The Traverse LS comes with all the features of the L trim, but the LS allows buyers to add some available features, including second-row tablet mounts with dedicated USB charging.
Traverse LT Cloth
The Traverse LT Cloth trim gets standard second-row captain’s chairs instead of bench seats. This lowers the seating capacity to seven. Buyers who prefer the bench can get it as an option. Also standard is a power-adjustable driver’s seat, a power liftgate, an infotainment system with an 8-inch touchscreen, satellite radio, rear parking sensors, rear cross traffic alert and blind spot monitoring. Buyers can choose from two available packages. One package features a trailer hitch and an upgraded air conditioning system. The other gets driver-assist features and an upgraded infotainment system.
Traverse LT Leather
The LT Leather trim comes with luxurious leather seating. This trim has an available Premium package that includes a 10-speaker Bose audio system, a surround-view parking camera system, and a rear camera mirror.
The RS trim gets most of the standard features from the LT Leather trim, as well as the contents of the Premium package. The RS gets exclusive exterior styling touches, including 20-inch wheels and a blacked-out grille. A rear-seat entertainment system is optional.
Move up to the Premier trim, and you’ll get leather upholstery, a heated steering wheel, ventilated front seats, heated second-row seats, a hands-free liftgate and wireless device charging. A sunroof is optional.
The top-of-the-line High Country trim gets the features of the Premier trim and adds adaptive cruise control, power-folding third-row seats, a panoramic sunroof, and more trailering features.
