2023 Chevy Traverse Models: LS, LT Cloth, LT Leather, RS, Premier, and High Country
All models come standard with a 3.6-liter V6 engine and nine-speed transmission capable of towing up to 5,000 lbs or 2,268 Kg. While all-wheel drive is standard, there is an option for front-wheel drive for those looking to get the best mileage.
The front-drive option has an EPA-approved rating of 18 mpg for city driving and 27 mpg for highway driving for an overall 21 mpg. Choosing the all-wheel drive (AWD) option understandably lowers the mileage somewhat, but the AWD versions still achieve a respectable 17 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway for an overall 20 mpg.
