2011 Chevrolet Traverse LT1 4dr SUV AWD (3.6L 6cyl 6A)


I'm a Certified Energy Conservation Driving Instructor and only able to coax out 20.1 mpg on a 600+ mile highway trip on a vehicle that is rated at 23MPG and should get upwards if 24-25 with good driving practices...

Calling GM and taking to the dealer provided no relief or answers.

Best Features

Room, ride and ability to maneuver in bad road conditions. Interior is very comfortable and provides adequate space for passengers and luggage. The rear view camera is a great assist when backing due to the lack of visibility through the lift gate glass.

Worst Features

More 12v accessory outlets in front and rear. More console storage space, with easy access to the driver while driving. Current accessibility is awkward to get into and requires too much attention from driving to obtain necessary items. The front of the vehicle is difficult to judge specific distance to objects and the 'short space alarm' similar to the one in the rear would be helpful when parking it tight spaces
