When searching for your next vehicle, like the Chevy Traverse, it’s important to consider the dimensions. By taking a look at the measurements and specs, you’ll have a better idea of whether the SUV you’re considering has the room you need for your family, friends, and cargo as you drive around Wexford, Pittsburgh, and Cranberry Township, PA.

Here, the team at Baierl Chevrolet has provided you with all of the information you need to make a confident decision about which vehicle is best for you. Below, we explore the 2021 Chevrolet Traverse dimensions inside and out.

Exterior Dimensions of the Chevy Traverse: A Commanding Presence

Let’s begin simply by observing the 2021 Chevy Traverse. From the outside, you’ll see that this SUV commands your attention. Take a look at the exterior dimensions of this full-size SUV below:

  • Wheelbase: 120.9 inches
  • Length: 205.9 inches
  • Height: 70.7 inches
  • Width: 78.6 inches

Clearly, the Traverse isn’t shy about its length. Despite its size, the lightweight chassis and 4-wheel independent suspension provide nimble handling. This makes the SUV adept at navigating the tight roadways of downtown Pittsburgh on a Friday night in the cultural district.

When you need to back out of a parking space in a busy lot at Giant Eagle Market District or parallel park along the Strip District, available HD Surround Vision can help you out, too. When you’re in reverse, this feature uses multiple cameras to display a 360-degree view of the area around your vehicle—including an overhead image. A Rear Vision Camera also comes standard.

The available Rear Camera Mirror can also help you back up if your Traverse is packed to the brim with cargo. With the press of a button, it provides a video feed of the area behind your rear windshield, so that the view out your back window is never obstructed by suitcases, furniture, or even taller passengers.

2021 Traverse Interior Dimensions: Seats for 8 Passengers

Speaking of passengers, the 2021 Traverse has room for eight in total. That includes you as the driver and seven of your closest friends and family members. Not only can your Traverse seat up to eight people depending on your trim level and configuration, it also provides the following dimensions:

  • Rows: 3
  • Headroom (front/middle/rear): 41.3 inches/40 inches/38.2 inches
  • Legroom (front/middle/rear): 41 inches/38.4 inches/33.5 inches
  • Shoulder Room (front/middle/rear): 62.1 inches/62.2 inches/57.5 inches

Note that those headroom dimensions will vary slightly based on the features your Traverse is equipped with. For example, SUVs without the available SkyScape® dual-panel power sunroof have 41.3 inches of headroom for the driver.

However, if you choose to equip your Chevy with this sunroof, then front headroom will drop slightly to 39.6 inches. You probably won’t notice the difference, though. The SkyScape® dual-panel power sunroof spans the full length of the cabin, flooding the interior with fresh air and natural sunlight.

Now, let’s talk about legroom. As the driver, you’ll enjoy 41 inches of legroom. You can adjust this to your liking with the available 8-way power driver seat that also includes power lumbar support.

Plus, an available memory feature allows you to lock in your seat setting. That way, if your teen adjusts the seat while you’re teaching them how to drive, it only takes the press of a button to easily put it back the way you like it afterwards.

For passengers in the back, the available Smart Slide® second-row seats allow you to slide and tilt the passenger-side seat forward for easy access to the third row.

Make the Most of Your 98.2 Cubic Feet of Cargo Volume in the Chevy Traverse

It’ll probably come as no surprise that the 2021 Chevy Traverse has ample cargo room. Take a look at its cargo capacity below:

  • Cargo volume behind third row: 23 cubic feet
  • Cargo volume behind second row: 57.8 cubic feet
  • Cargo volume behind first row: 98.2 cubic feet

As you can see, the Traverse has up to 98.2 cubic feet of total cargo volume. That’s enough to fit a full-size ladder at maximum cargo capacity. However, you can configure that to suit your cargo and passenger needs. In fact, this Chevy SUV has several different configuration options.

Fold down the back seats to maximize your cargo space. Or, keep all eight seats upright to carpool the little league team to the big game while storing coolers of water and orange slices in the back. How you use your cargo space is up to you!

Available power-folding and split-folding third-row seats make it easy to configure your Traverse in a variety of ways. Plus, loading and unloading the cargo area is simple with the available hands-free power liftgate. Just kick your foot under the rear bumper and the liftgate will open up automatically. This means that you don’t need to put down what you’re holding to open the hatch.
