2022 Chevrolet Traverse for Sale in Johnston, RI
Trims and Powertrain
The Traverse’s lineup consists of the LS, LT Cloth, LT Leather, RS, Premier, and High Country. The base LS gets a second-row bench that allows it to hold eight passengers, but the other trims have standard captain’s chairs in that row instead, reducing capacity to seven. (Buyers of the LT Cloth and LT Leather can opt to revert to the bench seat, though.)
The Traverse’s powertrain is made up of a 3.6-liter V6 and a nine-speed automatic transmission. The engine puts out a hardy 310 horsepower and 266 lb.-ft. of torque. Front-wheel drive is standard and all-wheel drivetrain is available. When a ’22 Traverse is equipped with the factory trailer hitch option, it can tow as much as 5,000 pounds depending on how much weight is being carried inside the vehicle.
Standard Features by Trim
Some highlights of the LS trim’s equipment are heated exterior mirrors, LED headlamps, keyless entry, automatic climate control with three separate zones, six UBS ports (two per row), push-button start, and second- and third-row bench seating. The LT Cloth adds a power-adjustable driver’s seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, wireless smartphone charging, rooftop rails, and integrated turn-signal indicators for the exterior mirrors. The LT Leather gets its namesake leather seats plus remote start, a power liftgate, a power-adjustable front passenger’s seat, and a universal home remote.
The RS’s unique features are mainly cosmetic, led by black-finished 20-inch wheels and other black exterior trim. But it’s also upgraded with perforated leather upholstery, power-folding exterior mirrors, and a 120V power outlet. The Premier is fortified with exterior chrome, a hands-free tailgate, a position memory system (for the driver’s seat, side mirrors, and steering column), ventilated front seats, and a driver information display with an 8-inch screen. At the top of the heap, the High Country has a power third-row split bench seat and a dual-panel sunroof.
Advanced Safety Technology
Chevrolet has put a significant amount of active safety technology standard in the ’22 Traverse by putting Chevy Safety Assist on every trim. That package contains Intellibeam automatic high beams, lane keep assist with lane departure warning, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, front pedestrian detection, and a following distance indicator. More technologies are added at the LT Cloth and LT Leather level: rear parking sensors, lane change alert with side blind-zone alert, and rear cross-traffic alert; the RS, Premier, and High Country also get adaptive cruise control, enhanced automatic emergency braking, a surround-view monitor, and rear pedestrian alert. Two more GM technologies are found on all Traverse trims: Buckle to Drive, which keeps the transmission from leaving Park until the front seatbelts are clicked, and Teen Driver, which combines a variety of measures to support good driving habits in the newly licensed. The Safety Alert Seat comes only on the High Country; when a potential hazard is sensed in the vehicle’s path, this seat pulses on the side of the seat corresponding to the obstacle’s direction.
Infotainment, Connectivity and Add-ons
The LS and LT Cloth get the most basic version of Chevrolet’s Infotainment 3 System, which is run using voice recognition or its 7-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth (enabling hands-free phone use and audio streaming), wireless smartphone integration (Android Auto and Apple CarPlay), an onboard Wi-Fi hotspot, SiriusXM satellite radio, and six speakers. The LT Leather trim moves up to Chevy’s Infotainment 3 Plus with its 8-inch touchscreen and becomes eligible for the optional navigation feature. Navigation is included on the highest three trims: RS, Premier, and High Country, which also get a top-shelf Bose audio system with ten speakers.
