Standard equipment on the Traverse includes a tilt/telescopic wheel, cruise control, full power accessories, and a sound system with satellite radio. The standard OnStar system includes Turn-by-Turn navigation and points-of-interest information. LT models add a few extras, while the top-of-the-line LTZ gets leather upholstery, tri-zone automatic climate controls, a voice-command, screen-based navigation system, and a rearview camera. For 2011, heated cloth seats are newly available on Traverse LT models, and the USB port for the sound system has been moved to the upper instrument panel storage bin.
Some of the vehicle's options include a rearview camera, a power liftgate, a DVD player, XM Satellite Radio, and heated and cooled front seats. Up-spec LTZ models can also be fitted with a rear spoiler, 20-inch aluminum wheels, a dual-exhaust system, and a panoramic sunroof.
