The all-new Chevrolet Traverse offers our customers a great family vehicle

The 2013 Chevrolet Traverse crossover utility, now available at Guaranty Chevrolet, is the best value among large SUVs, according to USAA’s Best Value vehicles list, which identifies the top 2013 automobiles in 16 categories that give consumers the most for the money.

The Chevrolet Traverse offers better safety ratings, lower insurance premium costs, higher fuel economy, better overall reliability and a lower suggested retail price – for Orange County area drivers – compared to other vehicles in the same category, according to USAA, which provides insurance, banking, investment and retirement products and services to 9 million members of the U.S. military and their families.

“The all-new Chevrolet Traverse offers our customers a great family vehicle, for an even greater price,” said Joe Renden, Sales Manager of Guaranty Chevrolet. “It offers space for up to eight people, with the utility, flexibility, fuel economy, and safety features Orange County area owners want and need.”

Best Value automobiles offer the best financial value of all vehicles USAA evaluates as part of a broader rating system called USAA Preferred, which uses quantitative data to evaluate vehicles’ cost, safety and reliability, among other key factors. Nearly 80 cars, trucks and minivans are currently designated as USAA Preferred vehicles. The Best Value list represents the vehicles at the top of each category.

The Chevrolet Traverse is General Motors’ best-selling crossover and is offered in LS, LT and LTZ models (with two LT trim levels: 1LT and 2LT), in both front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive configurations.

Product highlights include:

  •     EPA-estimated 17 city, 24 mpg on the highway (FWD models)
  •     Most storage capacity of any vehicle in its segment with up to 116.3 cubic feet
  •     Seating for up to eight without compromising space and comfort
