Chevrolet being always our topmost favorite automotive brand has allured us with its unique vehicle models, especially the three row crossover SUVs like Tahoe, Traverse and Suburban. But the price tags they wore were still beyond our reach by a few thousand bucks. So, when we received a notification call from our neighboring CDA used Chevrolet dealer, regarding the availability of a gently used version of the 2020 Chevrolet Traverse, we wasted no more time in taking the final decision.
At the first glimpse itself, the 2020 Chevy Traverse appeared to us as one of the most alluring piece of three-row family mainstay and we were instantly smitten by its plentiful interior space. We knew from the very beginning almost instinctively, that our dream vehicle is standing right in front of us. But we still didn’t hurry and took time in exploring all the aspects that can convert a used car buying into a nightmare. We started with the documents and things were crystal clear since they were taken care of by the dealership, we have years of trust. What we checked next was the order sheet, were things were pre-filled since it was a used edition, and the features listed there made us take the next step towards its purchase. The last wing was test driving the vehicle that helped us finalize the deal, the moment we returned to the dealership floor, post driving through as many variant of road surfaces, we could.
Our Test Drive Experience
The 2020 Chevrolet Traverse model that stood in front of us, didn’t give us an iota of feeling, that it was ever used. It had that typicalnerve-soothing effect even though it has imbibed all the rugged looks at the right places. It appeared to us an ideal family hauler that has quite much similarity with its siblings namely, the Tahoe and the Suburban, though they are bigger in size than the Traverse.
As we stepped inside, the cabin looked amazingly clean, while all its functionalities proved to be much more user-friendly, than we had expected. The model we selected had in it the standard 7.0- inch touchscreen display at the center, though some of its models were available there with the 8.0-inch ones.
Power Supply and Performance
The used version of the 2020 Chevrolet Traverse that we were interested in came along with a 3.6-liter V-6 engine under its hood, mated to a 9-speed automatic transmission that carried 310 horsepower to the front-wheels, while we chose to configure it as an all-wheel drive. With this power combination, the 2020 Chevrolet Traverse managed to earn a fuel economy of 22 mpg from a combined trip, and could tow up to 5,000 pounds when properly equipped.
As shown to us by the Coeur d’Alene used Chevrolet dealer staff members, the 2020 Chevrolet Traverse model that we chose to buy came with three rows of widely spread seats that are fitted into the spacious family room, to seat up to eight adult passengers, after leaving a space of more than 23 cubic feet for the cargoitems,which was quite big for its own segment.
