“Traverse’s winning combination blends the capability and roominess of a traditional SUV with the attributes of a crossover, including a car-like driving experience, low step-in height and good efficiency on the highway,” said Steve Majoros, a marketing director for Chevrolet. In fact, the Traverse boasts a pretty large engine—a 3.6L V6 with 288 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque—yet still retains a 24 mpg rating on the highway… pretty impressive numbers.

The Traverse is loaded with family-friendly safety features and technology as well. It’s the only vehicle in the large SUV segment with a front seat center air bag, plus it offers technologies like forward collision alert and lane departure warnings to keep the whole family safe inside. Not only will you and your precious cargo be safe, but you’ll all be comfortable as well—the Traverse seats up to eight people with ease and even features a rear-seat entertainment system to ensure a smooth ride!

While full-size sedans are often referred to as “family cars,” for many families, sedans, no matter how elegant and comfortable they might be, are simply not big and strong enough. Enter the two-time Best Family Car champion, the Chevy Traverse: it’s got the power, the space, the safety, and even the fun factor to handle any family no matter its shape, size, or style!

So come see us today at Hutch Chevrolet Buick GMC for a chance to take the Traverse out for a little test—it’ll be your favorite travel companion in no time.

Best New Car Leftovers for 2012

Hutch Chevrolet

Edmunds.com recently featured an article describing which 2012 models are the best to pick up as they become discontinued or their newly redesigned counterparts begin to hit showroom floors.  Their list is comprised of great deals for bargain hunters because the cars on the list will soon be discounted, incentivized and often even carry rebates.  Out of 13 vehicles on the list, three of them are Chevys and one is made by GMC.

The first of these vehicles is the 2012 Chevrolet Impala.  This is because the 2014 model year Impala is set to debut in early 2013.  This new Impala is going to be completely redesigned

The second is the 2012 Chevrolet Malibu, because the 2013 version of the Malibu is beginning to arrive.

Third we have the 2012 GMC Acadia.  Even after the 2013 model is released, the 2012 model year will still be considered one of the most solid choices in the SUV category.

Finally, they shed a little spot light on the 2012 Chevrolet Traverse.  This SUV has got a lot to offer buyers, from its spacious cabin to its great fuel economy.
