2012-Chevrolet-Traverse-7Geneva drivers should head down to our Elgin Chevy dealership for the 2012 Chevrolet Traverse and see why drivers are raving about the newest Chevy SUV. You can expect detailed information and specs on all of our vehicles from Biggers Chevrolet, including exactly how our newest vehicle goes up against one of its main competitors, head-to-head.

How Chevy Stacks Up to the Competition

When you visit our Geneva-area Chevrolet dealer for the 2012 Traverse, you’ll see why the SUV is a must-have among drivers. At first, it’s hard to get beyond the sticker price. The Traverse does have a higher MSRP at $29,660, only $1,000 more than the Pilot, but you’ll see where the difference is in the features and power.

The Traverse comes fully equipped with a 3.6L V6 engine that can produce 281 hp and 266 lb-ft of torque. The Pilot has a weaker 3.5L V6 engine that can only produce 250 hp and 253 lb-ft of torque. Both vehicles produce similar fuel economies, so it only makes sense to go with the more powerful engine.

There are many interior features that offered with the newest Traverse that you wouldn’t find in the 2012 Pilot including satellite radio, Bluetooth connectivity, steering wheel-mounted audio controls, onboard handsfree communications system, and power driver seats. You’ll also find differences with the warranties; Chevy offers a 5-year/100,000-mile Powertrain warranty, besting Honda’s 60,000 miles). Chevy also offers a 3-year/36,000-miles rust warranty and a 5-year/100,000-mile roadside assistance program, neither of which are available with Honda.

It’s plain to see how much more you’re getting behind the wheel of a Chevy. So don’t waste any more time shopping for a sub-par alternative; come get the best, the first time, here at Biggers Chevy.
