Each trim level is well turned out, with a complement of standard equipment
MSN Autos

The Traverse's center console/armrest is large and cumbersome, yet the cavity holds almost nothing.
Automobile Magazine

The available leather upholstery adds a bit more of an upscale touch.
Consumer Guide

Bluetooth should really be standard across trim levels, yet it is unavailable on the base level and is an additional cost for the LT.

Three trim levels—LS, LT, and LTZ—as well as either front- or all-wheel-drive configurations span a relatively wide range of equipment, from affordable family hauler to near-luxury vehicle.

All 2012 Traverse crossovers come with a tilt/telescopic wheel; power windows, locks and mirrors; cruise control; Bluetooth; and an AM/FM/XM/CD sound system. 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.

Major options include the rearview camera; a power liftgate; heated and cooled front seats; and a DVD entertainment system. The top-spec LTZ can be equipped with 20-inch aluminum wheels; a rear spoiler; dual exhausts; and a panoramic sunroof. Heated cloth seats were added as an option to LT models last year, and for 2012, most of the lineup now gets heated power body-color side mirrors, with integrated turn signal indicators on some models.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
