The 2015 Chevrolet Traverse is middle sized SUV which is very affordable and is set to be released into the market later in the year though there hasn’t been any precise mentioning of dates yet. Not many changes are expected though for this model. Small improvements will be offered but do not expect anything revolutionary.
Only available engine is the V6 engine that has a capacity of 3.6 liters.

This certainly is not a significant increase but we will take anything that is offered.

Review Of 2015 Chevrolet Traverse
Release date has not been confirmed but we could hear that it will be offered before the end of this year in most dealerships. This means that we will be able to see it officially introduced in the next few months. Since most details about it are known we do expect this to happen, there are no reasons to wait much longer.
There is no doubt that the 2015 Chevrolet Traverse brings some really great features especially for those that have larger families. There is still decent amount of space where it can be improved and one of those is the powertrain segment. At this moment only one engine is offered and this is something we would like to see changed even it is pretty good engine.
