CHEVY TRAVERSE ENGINE SPECS
When choosing your next vehicle, it’s important to consider the engine specs, so you know the power your car is capable of. The Chevrolet Traverse comes with a standard 3.6L V6 engine providing 310 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque.
When it comes to power, the Traverse is one of the brawniest in its class.
HEVY TRAVERSE MPG
The Automatic Stop/Start technology found in the Chevrolet Traverse boosts efficiency, giving the Traverse an EPA-estimated 18 city/27 highway MPG when front-wheel drive is equipped, and an EPA-estimated 17 city/25 highway MPG when in all-wheel drive.
The Automatic Stop/Start technology works by turning the engine off when it is idling. Therefore, if you’re stuck in stop-and-go traffic or driving through the city, your vehicle will be saving fuel.
If you’re looking to further maximize fuel efficiency on your Chevrolet Traverse, then try these fuel-saving tips:
1. Take it easy: Speeding is tempting but maintaining a consistent lower speed will help fuel efficiency.
2. Use the recommended fuel type: Car manufacturers test their vehicles in order to see which fuel will increase performance, so always use the recommended fuel type.
3. Pay attention to weight: Even though your Traverse can tow up to 5,000 pounds, consistently doing so will decrease fuel efficiency.
4. Reduce drag: Storing items on the top of your vehicle will decrease resistance, depleting your tank faster.
5. Inflate your tires: Keeping your tires at the correct pressure will cut down on rolling resistance, maximizing fuel efficiency.
These helpful tips combined with the Automatic Stop/Start technology will ensure that you are always being the most fuel-efficient driver possible.
