Chevy is working hard to cast aside impressions built over the past several years by delivering what it considers to be quality products that rival the best in the industry. In other words, Chevy is ready to prove itself to Honda and Toyota buyers. The 2009 Chevy Traverse just might be one of the success stories, as it delivers commendable EPA-rated fuel economy, three rows of relatively comfortable seating, copious amounts of storage space, and a pleasant driving experience. Toss in the 100,000-mile powertrain warranty, and you've suddenly piqued the interest of the crossover-shopping masses...not to mention those looking at minivans and large SUVs. Is the Traverse perfect? No, but neither is its competition.
