17 mpg city, 24 highway (FWD); 16/23 mpg (AWD)
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.
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.
There's nothing boastworthy here; although the 2014 Traverse isn't too bad if you consider how many passengers it can carry in comfort.
