2010 Chevrolet Traverse LTZ

The Chevy Traverse was the perfect vehicle for me to take six friends to a Detroit Red Wings game. The seven-passenger setup is easy to navigate thanks to the second row captain's chairs, making third-row accessibility an easy task even for adults.

The interior of the Traverse is very nice; good color combinations and materials. Hopefully this is a sign of things to come from GM. The powertrain was surprisingly peppy for a 5000-pound vehicle, providing ample acceleration when demanded.

It's amazing that these 20-inch wheels come standard on the LTZ. That's such a huge wheel, yet on this robust Traverse body, they fill the fender gaps nicely without drawing attention.

I beg to differ. I get 22-23 always in my Traverse. I have a friend with a Tahoe and just like my Silverado, gets 16-17. If you need to tow heavy, go with the Tahoe, but if you are moving people, the Traverse has more room, it's quieter and gets better mileage.
19MPG average, I doubt that. If you want to carry 7-8 passengers get a Minivan which will result in better gas mileage. If you need to tow something get a Tahoe or Yukon & probably end up with similar gas mileage as the Traverse.
