Why Buy a Used Traverse

The long list of reasons to buy a used Traverse starts with the space, comfort, and variety.

You can now find a used Traverse in the L, LS, LT Cloth, LT Leather, the sporty RS, and the higher-end Premier and High Country models.

It also comes standard with features such as forward collision alert with automatic braking, IntelliBeam automatic high beam headlights, and a following distance indicator. 

Chevrolet's Teen Driver system comes in the later model Traverse. This allows parents to set parameters for their young drivers, such as limiting stereo volume and speed limits. It also allows parents to monitor their driving performance to make sure they stay safe on the road. 

You Can Get Luxury Interior Features

Over the years, Chevrolet has made upgrades and changes to the Traverse's cabin. The 2020 model received new seating options and an optional Dual SkyScape two-panel power sunroof. It also comes with tri-zone automatic climate control and the option for high-quality genuine leather upholstery. 

The 2018 Traverse is the first year for the upscale High Country model along with the LT Cloth and the LT Leather. The High Country comes with an upgraded all-wheel-drive system, a power-folding third-row seat, and upgraded leather upholstery. 

The Spacious Cargo Area

The Traverse not only has spacious seating for up to seven, it has one of the largest cargo areas in its class. The second-generation models with the longer wheelbase have over 23 cubic feet of cargo space behind the third row. If you fold down the last row, the area opens up to accommodate 57.8 cubic feet of gear, and if you fold down both the back rows, you'll get a cargo area that's over 98 cubic feet.
