For the love of the family car when traveling on vacation. We absolutely adored the the 2015 Chevy Traverse this past week and found it to be the perfect family car. Last week in Florida, we took this fabulous ride for a week long demo touring around Florida. Check out our post below to see more of our favorite features in our 2015 Chevy Traverse Video Review and Photo Tour.
The Chevrolet Traverse is a mid-size SUV crossover vehicle that is ideal for a family like my own that is looking for a vehicle that drives like a higher end luxury car but also has the extra space to facilitate a family, carpools, and all kinds of extra stuff I need to tote around in my trunk – like suitcases when traveling, beach chairs, or sports gear! I much prefer the “mid-size” crossover SUV like this Chevy Traverse to the larger SUV’s that I find impossible to drive in reverse and maneuver in shopping centers or on the highway. It was a dream to drive!
We drove one of the fanciest models of the Chevy Traverse – the LTZ AWD version that was souped up with leather interiors and all the tech a modern family desires with a DVD player for the kids and MyLink touch screen system for our iPhones to connect and synch with along with the system offering GPS, traffic updates, satellite radio and more.
Pricing for this model starts at $43,000 and our specific vehicle had an MSRP of $48K. More basic models start in the 30K range.

Favorite Features in the 2015 Chevy Traverse
Comfy Captain’s Chairs
Kids loved the Captain’s chairs!
We all loved the spacious interior, but Mom and Dad especially loved the very spacious front seat area and all the great cubbies for our devices, drinks, keys and miscellaneous snacks and items traveling with us!
The color scheme of black and brown highlighted trim was GORGEOUS too.
The dual sunroof complete with sunshades totally rocked. It brightens up the entire vehicle too letting in more natural light which we all loved and I find essential in larger family cars like this one.
3rd row split seating
For the love of the split row 3rd seat!!!! AMAZING! I am desperate to buy a new car with a 3rd row seating option. I love the flexibility of the optional 3rd row seating in that it can go up or down and it can also be split to let only a portion of it up if you need just 1-2 more passengers but want more trunk space.
MyLink Radio with Touch Screen
This rocked! Loved being able to connect my iPhone and control everything from this screen too! So easy and genius technology making moving from the car ot anywhere else seemless with my device. You can read more about Chevy’s MyLink here.
Mom’s Fave Features in the 2015 Chevy Traverse LTZ AWD
- Digital Radio, Satellite Radio with Touch Screen that shows GPS, Traffic, and more via the MyLink from Chevy.
- A/C for our seats to keep them cool. I’ve always loved heated seats in winter but have never experienced a cooling seat. We loved this too!
- Technology that lets me sink my iPhone with all my MUSIC in iTunes in it to then display on the Screen in the car. Fabulous!
- USB ports & outlets galore
- Very spacious interior
- Large vehicle that can accommodate 7 passengers but also easy to drive on the highway and park too. Hooray!
- Easy to use split 3rd row
- Dual Sunroofs with Sunshades. Awesome!
- Safety features – like side mirrors that light up orange/yellow when a vehicle is in your blind spot. Brilliant!
- DVD player with remote for the kids
- Captain’s Chairs
- Lots of cupholders
Note: Thanks to General Motors and Chevrolet for providing us this vehicle for our test drive in Florida last week. As always, all thoughts and opinions are our own.
