The 2012 Chevrolet Traverse crossover utility is the best value among large SUVs, according to USAA’s Best Value vehicles list, which identifies the top 2012 automobiles in 16 categories that give consumers the most for the money.
The Traverse offers better safety ratings, lower insurance premium costs, higher fuel economy, better overall reliability and a lower suggested retail price 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 Chevy Traverse is a family vehicle without compromise,” said Maria Rohrer, Chevrolet Traverse marketing director. “It offers space for up to eight people, with the utility, flexibility, fuel economy, and safety features families on-the-go desire.”
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 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:
The Traverse is built at GM’s Lansing Delta Township Assembly. It has a retail starting price of $29,510.
Chevrolet is saluting the nation’s active duty and retired service members this month by providing an exclusive “Honor” badge to customers who buy an eligible vehicle through the General Motors Military Discount program. The brand also will donate $100 to Cell Phone for Soldiers for each eligible vehicle sold.
The GM Military Discount is also available to active, reserve and retired members and spouses of the U.S. Air Force, Army, Navy, Marines, National Guard and Coast Guard. The discount, ranging from $400 to $4,000, is available on most Chevrolet cars, trucks and crossovers, depending on the model and options selected. The discount can be combined with most current incentives.
The GM Military Discount offers an additional $750 discount on selected Chevrolet, Buick and GMC vehicles to eligible members of USAA. To date, 169,000 vehicles have been sold taking advantage of the USAA incentive. General Motors’ support of the military began in 1917 when 90% of GM’s truck production was directed toward WWI war manufacturing. Today, more than 60,000 GM employees have served in the U.S. military.
