The Traverse comes in three trim levels: LS, LT and LTZ. Each trim is available in front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. A direct injection 3.6-liter V6 engine sends power to the wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission. The well-equipped interior features two front bucket seats and two different seating configurations for the second and third row seats, accommodating a maximum of eight passengers. An extensive list of safety features come standard; these include: side curtain overhead airbags, seat-mounted side-impact airbags for driver and front-seat passenger, an available front center airbag, anti-lock brakes, and electronic traction and stability control.
The Traverse continues with minimal packaging changes for 2016.
