There is no doubt that when customers come to look for a new Chevrolet vehicle at McCluskey Chevrolet, they want something that will keep their family safe. Whether you started your car buying journey off at an Ohio Chevrolet dealership, or started right here in the Queen City, we are willing to bet that safety is a big factor for your new car purchase.

WIth the technology incorporated into today’s vehicles, it’s hard to find a vehicle that isn’t “safe” to some extent. With the 2015 model year officially released, Chevy has done quite a bit to add to the options for safe family cars. Just this week, the 2015 Chevrolet Traverse was given the top five-star safety rating spot by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

2015 Traverse Safety

This years Traverse model goes hand in hand with innovative safety features. On both the front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive versions, the Traverse earned five stars in both front and side crash tests, and four stars in the rollover test. Thanks in big part to the list of standard safety equipment, which include the following:

  • Electronic stability control
  • Antilock braking system
  • Rearview camera system
  • Tire-pressure monitoring system
  • Forward collision alert
  • Lane-departure warning systems

Siri Eyes Free is also available as an upgrade on the 2015 Traverse, which allows drivers to access their cell phones without the use of hands, for a less-distracted driving experience.

The 2015 Chevy Traverse has yet to be rated by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, but we think it’s a safe bet that it will be rated high by the IIHS as well.

The Traverse: Beyond its Safety Features

Safety is great, but what can the Traverse offer beyond keeping you and your passengers safe? The three-row SUV can seat up to eight occupants. The 2015 Traverse is a great family-friendly option for those on the go, who value convenience and space.

Our favorite features of the 2015 Traverse include the large amount of passenger space, the simplicity and convenience of the MyLink infotainment system, and the quiet, controlled ride that the SUV offers.

Be sure to come down to McCluskey Chevrolet today to take one for a test drive!
