2013 Chevrolet Traverse Fuel Economy

6.0
Fuel Economy

The Chevrolet Traverse has a six-speed automatic transmission that's been recalibrated for 2013. While that might make it smoother or more responsive, it doesn't make it any more fuel-efficient; the Traverse keeps its ratings—of 17 mpg city, 24 highway with front-wheel drive, or 16/23 with all-wheel drive—that are neither a standout for fuel-efficiency nor in gas-guzzler territory.

We should note, though, that in many previous drives of the Travers and its Buick Enclave and GMC Acadia siblings, we've failed to see real-world mileage in the vicinity of those EPA ratings.

No gas-mileage improvements are expected in the updated Traverse.
