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

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.

The 2013 Chevrolet Traverse is available in three trim levels—LS, LT, and LTZ—with each of them offered in front- or all-wheel-drive configurations. LTZ models approach luxury-level, while LS trims are no-fuss (albeit well-equipped) family vehicles.

Base Traverse LS models come with keyless entry; 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 (and the LT2 package adds even more), while the top-of-the-line LTZ gets leather upholstery, tri-zone automatic climate controls, and a voice-command, screen-based navigation system.

New to the lineup for 2013 is the Chevrolet MyLink system, which includes a 6.5-inch color touch screen, enabling smartphone integration as well as easy streaming of Pandora and Stitcher internet-based entertainment (with your smartphone's data plan).

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 a rear spoiler; dual exhausts; and a panoramic sunroof.

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.
