2010 Chevrolet Traverse: Making Good Use of Saturn's Demise
August 25, 2010
I noticed this sticker affixed to the door jamb of our Chevrolet Traverse last night. Seems a bit ironic given that GM built the Spring Hill plant to jump start its small car brand. Now it's churning out some of the biggest crossovers on the market. Oh well.
On a more pleasant note, our Traverse reminded me why I don't hesitate to recommend the Lambda-based crossovers to my friends. Not only is it sized to fit just about any combination of passengers or cargo, it still remains very easy to drive.
The steering is relatively light, the sight lines are good and even the turning radius is pretty tight for such a large vehicle. In fact, it's almost exactly the same as our long-term Honda Crosstour which is nearly a foot shorter. There are a few elements of the interior I could do without, but overall it's a far better family vehicle than most full-size SUVs, the Tahoe included.
