Form Meets Function in the 2016 Chevy Traverse LTZ
Not every vehicle can accurately balance power and personality. Often, the most impressive high-performance vehicles bring a race-ready style that, while certainly attractive, isn’t necessarily right for everybody, or perfect for everyday driving. Likewise, some of the best utility vehicles don’t exactly bring the most attractive styling with them, and this can lead to disappointment among those who need the convenience and power of a utility vehicle but who have to choose from less-than-desirable options. Luckily, the premium LTZ trim on the new 2016 Chevy Traverse largely solves this problem, delivering an excellent mix of form and function to provide one impressive utility crossover with a style and attitude all its own.
Whether you’re in need of a vehicle with all the tools and features to get your daily driving done or simply want to upgrade to something that looks as stylish as it is useful, there are few better options than the Traverse LTZ. Built to be able to handle just about anything you throw at it, this impressive crossover opens the door for stylish utility vehicles to become a serious force in the modern auto industry, appealing to drivers young and old for its wide range of capabilities. Whether you’re a family in need of a good cargo hauler or someone just looking for a safe, compact-yet-spacious model, there’s something in the Traverse LTZ for everyone – and that probably means you too.
Interested in seeing what all the buzz is about around this enviable trim level of the Traverse? Here’s a quick look at what drivers can expect from these highly capable, stylish vehicles, and why the Traverse might just be the car you’ve been wanting all along.
Impressive Exterior Upgrades
Among many other upgrades, the most noticeable features specific to the LTZ trim level are those on the exterior, including accents to major styling points that set the LTZ high above its brothers in the Traverse trim lineup. Take a look at what this trim brings to the table and you’ll see just how much the Traverse can provide on the style side of driving.
Trim Level Options
By choosing the LTZ trim level, drivers will be able to enjoy trim-specific features like 20-inch machined aluminum wheels, a body-color bodyside with chrome accents, a power rear liftgate, and power, heated, body-colored side mirrors with integrated turn signal indicators. Plus, with available features like the dual sunroof, a roof rack, and assist steps, you’ll be turning heads on just about every road you cruise down in this desirable model.
Model Standard Features
Of course, as well-outfitted as this trim level may be, it relies on the already-amazing standard exterior options available on the Traverse to begin with, including everything from fog lamps and daytime running lights to the rear spoiler, the chrome door handles, and the roof rail moldings. Plus, with available options like black bowtie badging you can infuse your own personal style to create the Traverse that’s perfect for you.
Built To Be Comfortable
If there’s one thing just about anybody who’s ridden in a Traverse will tell you, it’s that these are exceptionally comfortable Chevy vehicles. The LTZ trim comes with all the premium elements you’d expect from a top-of-the-line model without feeling overcrowded in the sleek, stylish interior. Take one step into the cabin and you’ll see for yourself just how easy it would be to drive this impressive model on a daily basis.
Interior Style For Miles
Whether you’re more the type to be in the driver’s seat or passed out in the back row, the Traverse LTZ offers a plush and comfortable interior to welcome you for a drive of any length. Leather seating for seven is spread among two rows, including a 60/40 folding rear bench and heated and ventilated front bucket seats for comfort everywhere in the cabin. Drivers can enjoy an eight-way power seat and a heated, leather-wrapped steering wheel to stay warm during those chilly drives. Acoustical insulation helps keep exterior noise at a minimum, and the automatic tri-zone climate control allows for seamless temperature adjustment for everyone with total ease. And for those sick of having to re-adjust everything each time you get in, the Traverse LTZ features a seat memory that can remember and automatically adjust to your preferred settings with the push of a button.
Included Convenience Tech
Lucky for Traverse drivers, the LTZ trim level also features some of Chevy’s most impressive tech options, including access to the Chevy MyLink infotainment system through the standard 6.5-inch color touchscreen center display. From there, you can blast all your favorite CDs, MP3s, and streaming audio through the standard 10-speaker Bose premium sound system, and true audiophiles can even opt for the premium Bose 5.1 Surround Sound audio system for total music fidelity on the road. Plus, with the Traverse LTZ’s standard NavTraffic integrated navigation system, you can always find your way back home with no trouble. And for those fidgety backseat passengers, an available Rear Seat Entertainment System offers hours of movie and game choices as effective distractions on long road trips.
Safe For The Whole Crew
Of course as impressive as the LT model may be for an enjoyable ride through town, that isn’t what makes it a great family vehicle – rather, like any good family vehicle, it’s the combination between premium luxury and advanced safety features that make this vehicle perfect for any family on the go. With safety tech like an advanced multi-stage airbag system, including an innovative front center airbag to reduce driver whiplash, as well as a subscription to OnStar Emergency Response services, you’ll feel confident that your Traverse is ready to handle the worst of what the road might throw at you. Plus, with preventative safety tech including everything from Lane Departure Warning with Forward Collision Alert to Side Blind Zone Alert and StabiliTrak stability control, the Traverse actually helps prevent accidents from ever happening. And with features like a standard rear camera, you’ll find backing out of parking spaces and rejoining the flow of traffic easier than ever before.
