The 2013 Chevrolet Traverse carries on this model's reputation as one of the safest vehicles you can get. In previous model years, the Traverse has earned nearly perfect crash-test ratings in all categories.

Together with the closely related Buick Enclave and GMC Acadia, the Traverse is one of the first vehicles on the market to offer a front center side airbag. Built into the driver's seat, the airbag system helps protect the driver (or the driver and front passenger) from certain types of side impacts.

The Traverse includes standard parking sensors, a rearview camera system, hill start assist (to help you start safety on a steep incline), and head-curtain side bags with rollover mitigation technology. That's all in addition to the expected full roster of airbags, anti-lock brakes, and stability control.

On LTZ models (and optional elsewhere) the Traverse includes Side Blind Zone Alert and Rear Cross Traffic Alert—bpth features that provide alerts to the driver and may help avoid collisions.

Outward visibility hasn't been great as we've tested it in Traverse models—but all the camera system does help.

OnStar is also included in all Traverse models; it includes six months of Directions and Connections service, with Turn-by-Turn Navigation sent to the car by an operator, with no need to stop and input addresses. OnStar still includes Stolen Vehicle Assistance and an OnStar Mobile App for remote control of locking, engine starting, and remote viewing of vehicle information.

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.
