Features for lease deals: Chevy Equinox and Chevy Traverse

There are certain features of the Chevy Equinox and the Chevy Traverse that are considered to be deal makers when it comes to looking for Chevy lease deals.

Some of these features are:

Powertrain

The Chevrolet Traverse comes with the LLT engine, with a capacity of 3,564 cc (3.564 L; 217.5 cu in) DOHC V6 with VVT. There is also the direct injection. Other Lambda-based vehicles also showcase this powertrain in the 2009 model year. Power to the front and all the wheels of the vehicle are provided with a 6-speed automatic transmission.

The LTZ model offers a dual exhaust along with the delivery of 288 horse power (215 kilo Watt) and torque that comes in at 270 pounds per feet.

Design

The name Traverse was used initially as a concept car during the 2003 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. This concept was replaced by the launch of the Chevrolet Equinox 2005 model year. Inspired by the 2005 sequel concept, the production Traverse’s design has a chevron-shaped grille that is very similar to the 2008 Chevrolet Malibu. The Traverse comes with a unique sheet metal that is very different from the other Lambda crossovers, except for the doors, which have been kept pretty similar.

Marketing

The NBC drama My Own Worst Enemy showcased the Chevy Traverse as an example of product placement by General Motors, along with the new Chevrolet Camaro. However, the show was canceled in mid-November 2008 due to various reasons.

The Chevy Traverse then made a come back in the series called The Mentalist and also on the remake of Hawaii Five-0.

Dealers who give Chevy traverse lease deals often mention that contrary to popular belief, the Traverse is not really named after the city in Michigan state, Traverse City.

Some features to remember for the Chevy Traverse are the 2009 single exhaust model that comes with a 3.6 L LLT V6 engine and 6 speed 6T75 transmission.
