GREEN | 6 out of 10

Expert Quotes:

17 mpg city, 24 highway (FWD); 16/23 mpg (AWD)
U.S. EPA





The 2012 Chevrolet Traverse gets pretty impressive EPA ratings from its six-speed automatic transmission--mostly because it spans such a wide range of ratios and allows relaxed highway cruising.

But in real-world driving with the Traverse as well as its GMC Acadia and Buick Enclave siblings, we haven't come close to matching the Traverse's EPA fuel economy ratings of 17 mpg city, 24 highway with front-wheel drive, or 16/23 with all-wheel drive.

Conclusion

The 2012 Chevrolet Traverse is an improvement over traditional truck-based SUVs in many ways, but gas mileage might not be one of them.

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.
