The 2012 Chevrolet Traverse is powered by a V6 engine that most test drivers said produces ample power. Power is routed through a six-speed automatic transmission, and most reviewers said that it shifts smoothly. The Traverse achieves an EPA fuel economy estimate of 17/24 mpg city/highway, which is comparable to the fuel economy estimates of most others in the class. The 2012 Traverse earned praise for its comfortable ride and controlled handling when it was new. Auto journalists were pleased with the Traverse's strong brakes and accurate steering, and found it fairly easy to maneuver in tight areas such as parking lots. While some test drivers noticed a few hard plastics, most agreed that the 2012 Traverse's interior is solidly constructed and built with materials that are appropriate for the class. Reviewers reported that the front seats are comfortable for long distances. They added that the second row is comfortable and easy to get to, thanks to wide door openings. Some auto journalists remarked that the third row is large enough for adults, which is a rare compliment in this class. A six-speaker CD stereo with an auxiliary input jack is standard. Available features when it was new include tri-zone automatic climate control, a rear-seat entertainment system, a 10-speaker Bose stereo system, Bluetooth, navigation and a rearview camera. The Traverse offers up to 116.4 cubic feet of cargo space, which is among the best in the class.
