All-wheel drive is an incredibly handy and desirable feature for a family SUV. AWD improves traction on wet or snowy roads, makes it easier to drive off-road, and helps you drive with extra confidence. If you’re looking for the best AWD SUV you can buy, U.S. News & World Report recently ranked the Chevrolet Traverse as one of the industry’s top choices.
The Traverse features prominently on the U.S. News list of the 12 Best All-Wheel-Drive SUVs in 2021. For the 2022 model year, every Traverse trim level is available with AWD. Whether you’re interested in the entry-level LS, the sporty RS, or the upscale High Country, you don’t have to compromise what you want to get an AWD model.
The Traverse’s AWD system sends power to all four wheels as needed to improve your grip on the road. Thanks to the Driver Mode Selector, you can switch to FWD to improve your fuel efficiency when AWD isn’t needed. You can also dial up settings like Snow, Off-Road, and Tow/Haul to optimize performance.
In addition to AWD, the Traverse boasts plenty of other high-value capabilities and features. These include three rows and seating for up to eight, 98.2 cubic feet of max cargo space, a mighty 310-horsepower V8 engine, and six standard Chevy Safety Assist technologies.
