TAKE THE TRAVERSE OUT AROUND BIRMINGHAM

The secret to a quality family trip is the vehicle you take to get there. And if you are one of the many parents in Birmingham, AL that need new advice on making a family road trip, we think the Chevrolet Traverse has just the thing.

It all begins with its size. As a midsize SUV, it is nimble on its wheels around tight city streets, while providing comfortable seating for up to eight passengers when you need it. It leads its class with 116 cubic feet of cargo room, so every member of the family can reclaim some personal space, which is always important when on the road. The interior is designed for maximum comfort, with available premium materials to indulge all the senses, like wood trim accents and leather-appointed seats.

You remember the fights that ensued when choosing music for the whole car, and now those squabbles can be silenced forever more. With the intelligent infotainment system and steering wheel mounted controls, you as the driver get final say on what plays and what doesn't. Conveniently sync your smartphone, and you can even field important phone calls hands-free when on the move.

When it comes to performance, the Traverse meets its eye-catching style with strength under the hood and efficiency to take you further. Now all you need to do is convince the rest of the family, but a simple test drive here at Landers McLarty Chevrolet, we serve customers from Birmingham as well as our neighbors in Huntsville, AL.
