2014 Chevrolet Traverse Fuel Economy

6.0
Fuel Economy

Gas mileage is bound to be a sore point for those looking at the 2014 Chevrolet Traverse--unless you see it as a three-row vehicle that can move a large group more efficiently than with two separate vehicles.

Last year, even after a recalibrated powertrain, the Traverse carried over with its EPA ratings of 17 mpg city, 24 highway with front-wheel drive, or 16/23 with all-wheel drive. And making matters worse, perhaps, is that in real-world drives, we've seen numbers that are typically a bit lower than those estimates.

There's nothing boastworthy here; although the 2014 Traverse isn't too bad if you consider how many passengers it can carry in comfort.

Yet the truth of the matter is that these figures are right in norm among three-row vehicles. Only a few models, like the Toyota Highlander Hybrid, and the Ford Explorer 2.0T (front-wheel drive only) are better.
