If you’ve gotten to know the Chevy Traverse at our lineup at Harbin Automotive, you undoubtedly know it as the obvious middle ground between the body-on-frame SUVs at the top of our lineup and the more contemporary crossovers that are smaller in nature. Now refreshed for the new model year, the 2016 Chevy Traverse has arrived at our north Alabama dealership, and we’ve got lots to share about its many virtues.
The Traverse gets 4G LTE WiFi. You might remember that, for the 2015 model year, the Traverse was among the only Chevy models that held out on adding the popular WiFi hotspot. Now the 2016 Traverse is getting in on the party as well. Up to seven smart devices may now connect to a dedicated internet source with great quality and bandwidth. And, since you won’t be using your carrier’s network, your battery will last longer than ever as well.

The Top-Level LTZ gets its due. To be certain, all three trim levels of the 2016 Traverse are spacious and welcoming. However, it’s the sophistication of the LTZ trim that puts it over the top for many drivers. With leather upholstery, heated/cooled seats, tri-zone climate control and a sliding armrest with storage capability, the LTZ offers the height of refinement for Alabama drivers, all in a spacious package that is thousands below many competing models. And, since it is tuned to deliver a robust 288 hp, it’s quick on the getup as well.
Towing and Trailering with Confidence. In its standard configuration, the 2016 Chevy Traverse employs a 3.6L V6 powertrain that delivers 281 hp and 266 lb-ft of torque. This means that, when properly equipped, the Traverse rewards operators with a powerful 5,200-pound towing capacity, good for pulling boats or trailers with ease. So, where do you want to go this weekend?
Safe from All Angles. Safety is part and parcel to the Traverse’s mission. After all, when you’ve got up to eight occupants to take care of, its importance can’t be overstated. That’s why the Traverse, fresh off a five-star NHTSA safety rating for 2015, doubles down with an industry-first Front-Center Air Bag and features such as Side Blind Zone Alert and Rear Cross Traffic Alert. It keeps passengers out of harm’s way, while offering peace of mind to all.
The 2016 Chevy Traverse is now available at Harbin Automotive. Are you ready to see what all the excitement is about? Test drive yours today!
