Engine, Transmissions, And MPG
Keeping it easy Chevy Traverse comes with a single engine and transmission. That’s no matter which trims you’re buying.
And we’re loving the engine! Because it’s a 3.6-liter V6. Boasting 310 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque. It’s powerful and quick.
That’s thanks to the smooth-shifting 9-speed automatic transmission. That’s responsive and efficient.
So your option is all-wheel-drive or two-wheel drive. And the two-wheel option means your getting a front-wheel drive. Being big fans of rear-wheel drive, that’s one thing we’d love to see change.
The fuel economy for the 2022 Chevy Traverse is solid. Staying consistent throughout the trim options.
