07. 2011 Chevrolet Traverse
The 2011 Chevrolet Traverse represents the largest sedan-based crossover built by the domestic brand. Capable of seating up to eight passengers or swallowing as much as 116.4 cubic feet of cargo within its cavernous interior, the Chevrolet Traverse impresses with its compliant suspension setup and pleasant driving characteristic, feeling more like a big family car than a ponderous SUV.
The 2011 Chevrolet Traverse packs considerable power in the form of a standard 3.6-liter V-6 engine. This motor is tuned to provide 281 ponies (288 with the dual exhaust option specified) and 266 lb-ft of torque, with fuel economy showing as 17-mpg around town and 23-mpg highway. A six-speed automatic transmission is included free of charge with the Traverse, and all-wheel drive can be added to the vehicle to give it some extra grip in foul weather driving.
