Chevrolet Traverse Named One of Year’s Best AWD SUVs

Chevrolet Traverse Named One of Year’s Best AWD SUVs | Stillwater, OK

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.

To try out the Traverse and its AWD system for yourself, stop in for a test drive here at Wilson GM in Stillwater, Oklahoma.

Every year, J.D. Power measures an owner’s emotional attachment to their vehicle in the U.S. Automotive Performance, Execution, and Layout (APEAL) Study. The 2021 APEAL Study awarded three Chevy models — the Chevrolet Corvette, Chevrolet Tahoe, and Chevrolet Blazer — as top segment recipients from the study.

 

The results of the 2021 APEAL and IQS studies revealed that the Chevrolet Corvette had both the highest level of emotional appeal and initial product quality. As the highest ranked model in the premium sporty car segment, the Chevrolet Corvette brings both satisfaction and excitement to its owners through its exhilarating performance.

 

The Chevrolet Tahoe was completely redesigned for the 2021 model year, which helped it achieve segment-topping performances when it came to its appeal. The Chevy Tahoe was the highest ranked large SUV in this year’s APEAL Study, beating out the GMC Yukon.

 

When it came to the midsize SUV segment, the Chevrolet Blazer had no problem outranking its competitors, the Nissan Murano and Hyundai Santa Fe. With its aggressive, sporty personality, it’s no surprise the Blazer makes a strong emotional appeal.

 

With three Chevrolet models topping their segments in the J.D. Power 2021 APEAL Study, it’s no surprise that these vehicles are popular choices among families. If you want a strong emotional attachment to your next new vehicle, shop at Wilson GM in Stillwater, Oklahoma.
