2010 Chevrolet Traverse: This Is America, Not Europe

August 24, 2010

Just back in the Chevrolet Traverse, the first time I've driven one of the GM Lambda crossovers in months. And am knocked out by just how good this package is.

As much as Audi, Mercedes-Benz and Porsche rattle on about the perfection of their own crossovers, the Euro utes have become too autobahn focused just like they used to be too off-road oriented. Only BMW understands that a crossover has to occupy the middle ground, which is the key to its all-purpose utility.

And nothing does the middle ground quite like the Chevy Traverse. It drives easily and comfortably enough to be a relaxing refuge in commute traffic, yet it's still big enough to haul stuff and tough enough to tow stuff.

The Traverse drives like a car, but it's not afraid to be a truck. That's what you need in America.
