What's New in the 2015 Chevrolet Traverse?

The Traverse only offers minor changes for 2015. Updates include a new Siri Eyes Free system for iPhone users, upgraded wheel designs, and some new interior and exterior colors. 

Which Traverse is the Best?

The 2015 Traverse 2LT makes the most sense to us. It's well equipped without going overboard on amenities. Its 18-in wheels are the perfect match for its chassis, while the LTZ's 20-inchers create a bit of a bouncy ride, especially for rear-seat passengers. We strongly suggest going with all-wheel drive to remain fully capable through all kinds of road conditions. Options such as dual sunroofs, navigation and rear-seat DVD viewing are must-haves for families who take frequent road trips. See the 2015 Chevrolet Traverse models for sale near you


How Much Does a 2015 Chevrolet Traverse Cost?

The 2015 Chevrolet Traverse is available with four trim levels: LS, 1LT, 2LT and LTZ.

Base-level LS models start at $31,800 with shipping. Standard features include automatic headlights, cruise control, Bluetooth, and a rearview camera that sends its display to a standard 6.5-inch center-mounted touchscreen. Also standard are split folding rear seats and side-curtain airbags.

The mid-level Traverse 1LT ($34,600) adds alloy wheels, fog lights, rear park assist, a power driver's seat, wood interior trim and a remote starter.

Drivers who step up to the Traverse 2LT ($37,100) get heated front seats, tri-zone automatic climate control and Chevrolet's MyLink infotainment system, which boasts Bluetooth audio and smartphone app integration.

Topping the Traverse line is the luxury-oriented LTZ ($42,700), which includes a blind spot monitoring system, 20-in alloy wheels, ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, leather seats and second-row captain's chairs. LTZ models also include newly standard forward-collision and lane-departure warning systems.

Major options include a navigation system, a dual-pane sunroof and a rear-seat DVD player.

Chevrolet Traverse Safety

Is the 2015 Chevrolet Traverse a Safe Car?

The Traverse's safety equipment encompasses six airbags, including head-curtain airbags for all three rows. A front-center airbag (designed to keep the driver and passengers from colliding with each other in a side impact) is optional, as are blind spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert systems. The OnStar emergency telematics system is standard.

In government crash tests, the Traverse performed exceptionally well. The crossover earned a 5-star overall safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which consisted of 5-star scores in the front- and side-impact tests and a 4-star rollover score.

2015 Chevrolet Traverse vs the competition

Ford Flex -- The Flex offers better visibility, more expansive rear seating and a greater list of creature comforts and user technology, but the Traverse tops the Flex in handling.

Toyota Highlander -- The newly redesigned Highlander is smaller than the Traverse, so it doesn't offer as much space for passengers and cargo, but it still comes standard with 3-row seating, and its smaller size makes it easier to manage in tight spaces.

GMC Acadia -- Since it's based on the same GM architecture as the Traverse, the Acadia is extremely similar on almost all fronts. The Acadia has a bit more truck flair, while the Traverse leans more in a family-centric direction, but these are primarily visual differences established by interior and exterior styling cues.
