2012 Chevrolet Traverse 2LT Road Test and Review
2012 Chevrolet Traverse 2LT: Introduction
Once upon a time, General Motors tried to sell minivans. After years of dismal results coupled with poor reviews of products with names like the Pontiac Trans Sport and the Chevrolet Uplander, the automotive behemoth threw in the towel and decided to build a full-size crossover vehicle to tackle the people mover market. This was the genesis of the Chevrolet Traverse, which first appeared as a 2009 model and quickly erased painful memories of GM's ill-received minivan efforts thanks to strong interest from family shoppers.
The 2012 Chevrolet Traverse 2LT is currently in its final year of production before an impending refresh upgrades its exterior looks and interior fixtures, but it still has a lot to offer buyers who require three rows of roomy seating as well as significant hauling capability.
