After the superb re-styling and other upgrades, we don’t hesitate to call the Traverse a winner and won’t be surprised if this excellent vehicle, eyes glinting afresh, helps itself to an even greater share of the large crossover segment.

The Traverse is a modern-day Middle-American chariot, a simple, well-proportioned beast meant to haul American families with a minimum of fuss. Chevy’s done a good job of it. If you’re in the market, it’s worth a look.

Overall, the Traverse is quiet and comfortable under most conditions. On the highway, engine and wind noise are low, and the ride is excellent. The changes for 2013 are useful upgrades to a solid machine. Those who like the Traverse will find them welcome.

In the realm of people movers, the Chevrolet Traverse is one of those vehicles whose design makes sense the instant you enter the cabin. It is a comfortable city cruiser, but this is a vehicle that weighs nearly two tons, and mass is a difficult to hide.

It’s not the cheapest or fastest three-row crossover on the market, but Chevy is winning over customers with the Traverse’s styling. Add in its utility and relative nimbleness, and there are even more legitimate reasons to consider it.

While not revolutionary, the changes for 2013 bring the Traverse closer to its peers, equipment-wise, and the mild revisions to the big crossover’s powertrain and suspension are welcome. Its fresher style will likely appeal to a broader swath of buyers.
