The Chevrolet Traverse offers everything you could want in a vehicle - and has received the highest possible Overall Vehicle Score for safety – 5-Stars.

With innovative safety features that help make every road a safe one, the 2015 Traverse has received the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA’s) highest possible Overall Vehicle safety score.

NHTSA has been testing vehicles for safety since 1978, and in 2011 added an Overall Vehicle Score, as well as revised their testing to be more stringent. The comprehensive NHTSA New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) puts vehicles through frontal, side-impact and side pole crash tests, as well as rollover evaluations. Each model is then given safety ratings from one to five stars.

Safety innovation is second nature to Traverse. The 2013 Traverse was the first vehicle in the industry to offer an available seat-mounted Front Center Air Bag, which provides protection for both the driver and front passenger in the event of a side-impact collision. Dual-stage frontal air bags, driver and front passenger seat-mounted side-impact air bags, and Head-Curtain side-impact air bags help to keep your family safe. Plus ABS and 4-wheel vented disc brakes and Tire Pressure Monitoring system. With all these features, you’ll also find Traverse offers something you may not expect: peace of mind.
