With the success of the Explorer PI, Chevy should offer a police package fro the Traverse. Better MPG than Tahoe, for most common patrol usage, watching.

Perhaps the new Trailblazer will be used for a patrol vehicle. The Traverse seems slightly too long for this use to me.

Based on what I see, plenty of people like the Traverse enough to buy one. I'm sure that Chevrolet dealers see the point of the Traverse.

Exactly, I see 'em all the time, I think Chevy has this figured out. I also see lots of Tahoes and Suburbans, too. Those appeal to a different set of buyers.  Ford has or will have the Explorer, Edge, Escape, and EcoSport, Chevy mirrors that with the Traverse, forthcoming Blazer, Equinox, and Trax. The Blazer will be a CUV, not Colorado-based as one poster suggested.

My mother in law has a Traverse and I've driven it and rode in it quite a few times and it's not a bad vehicle.

This is an excellent move by GM, large Utes are the flavor of the moment and a fresh Traverse

will tap into that  market hunger. If you're going to offer a 3-row utility, give it some decent room

with a longer wheelbase, something Traverse does well.

I doubt they will sell significantly more of these than they already do. I believe this is a vanilla vehicle that won't move the needle much beyond where it is.

I saw it in the flesh at NAIAS last weekend and wasn't very impressed with the exterior.  (Equinox is nicer visually).  It will sell very well though; the Government Motors Marketing (i.e, spin) and Financing machine will assure that.  I thought the Ford display was well done, and even with arguably one of the the "oldest" lineups in show, was probably the busiest. I couldn't get anywhere near some of the Shelbys on display and the 2018 Mustang display was very crowded.  The Lincoln display was also well done and with a lot of traffic as well.
