If you need extra space in a SUV or crossover you usually find a large SUV with a thirsty V8 built on a truck frame. But GM has a bigger midsize crossover that has lots of space for seven or eight and rides, more like a car. The second generation Traverse is bigger and now packs more luxury.
The redesigned interior is a big improvement with nicer materials used throughout the cabin. But Chevy needed a more luxurious version of the Traverse. So now Chevy has a new top model, called High Country, which slots above the Premier or LTZ in older Traverse trim levels.
Think of it as the Chevy version of GMC Denali line. Prices are also higher, about $54,000 when you choose the High Country model. Options are limited to rear seat entertainment system for about $1,795 without DVD, or $1,995 with a DVD player. While the price seems steep it’s a bit less than the Buick version of the big crossover.
