Five-Point Inspection: 2013 Chevrolet Traverse 2LT

Five-Point Inspection: 2013 Chevrolet Traverse 2LT

1. Redesign Brought Sharp New Looks, Interior Style

The Traverse went through a facelift in 2013, and it made a big difference. Previously rounded off sheet metal has been molded into sharp angles, making the Traverse look more athletic. Trying to escape the ‘minivan’ classification is important for large crossovers to stay relevant, and the previous Traverse was doing a poor job.

Inside, some new contrasting green stitching and ambient lighting has been added, a small touch which goes a long way towards making the Traverse feel more premium. The new looks move the Traverse further from the bubbly world of the minivan, and merit being called handsome.
