As cited in the Toronto auto show tribune, the Chevrolet Traverse will feature a 3.6L V6 engine with VVT and direct injection. The other Lambda-based vehicles will get this powertrain update in the 2009 model year. A 6-speed automatic transmission will give power to front or all wheels

Although the Traverse shares its underpinnings with other GM Lambda CUVs, the Traverse actually utilizes a slightly different drivetrain. Whereas the other Lambdas uses a 3.6L V6 with MPFI, the Traverse uses a 3.6L V6 with direct-injection — upping both output and fuel economy. The Traverse is rated at 286 horsepower and 255 lb-ft of torque — 281 horsepower and 253 lb-ft of torque with a single-exhaust setup — up from the Lambda norm of 275 horsepower and 251 lb-ft of torque.

I love it. Considering the reviews of the Malibu and Acadia so far, I wouldn't be surprised if dealers are going to have a hell of a time keeping this thing in stock. :roxor:

Minivans are bad enough, and it seems they are now being replaced with the "cross-over" vehicle, like this Traverse. IMO, the "car" looks okay, but I really think these type of vehicles are all starting to look the same. Let's call these things what they really are...a station wagon that needs a diet. I suppose they serve a purpose, but you will never see one in my garage.

There is a reason why all the GM ones look the same. Because they are all pretty much the same. :D

For the segment it's in it looks good and should do well. If I was in the market for such a vehicle I would get it in a heartbeat (no pun intended).
