The standout feature of the 2013 Chevy Traverse, though, is its space: space for storage, space for seating, and space to move comfortably for the entire family. It offers just as much room as a minivan, but in a more stylish package, with loads of options for seat configuration and storage capability. Chevy’s innovative design is responsible for all the extra room and capability:
• It can seat up to 8 adults when equipped with 2nd and 3rd row bench seats. Getting second row captain’s chairs reduces passenger seating to 7.
• The front seat boasts deluxe head and legroom for both the driver and passenger. The 2nd row of bench seats also has a slide feature to increase legroom and allow for easy access to the 3rd row.
• With all 3 rows of seats in place, the 2013 Chevy Traverse can house 24.4 cubic feet of cargo. Fold down the 3rd row of seats for 70.3 cubic feet, or remove the 2nd row for a maximum storage capacity of 116.3 cubic feet — more than any other vehicle in its segment.
The new Chevy Traverse was designed with the family in mind, which is why customers will see more innovative safety features designed to keep the entire family protected on the road. All 2013 models come with standard safety features such as four-wheel antilock disc brakes, traction and stability control, a review camera, full-length side curtain and front-seat side airbags, and OnStar, which includes automatic crash notification, on-demand roadside assistance, remote door unlocking, stolen vehicle assistance, and turn-by-turn navigation.
A blind-spot and rear cross-traffic monitoring system is also available on the top LTZ trim level. New to the 2013 Chevy Traverse is an innovative inboard driver-seat side airbag that helps protect the driver and front passenger from colliding into one another in the event of a side impact crash by inflating in between them. It is standard on all models except the LS where it is an available option.
