Chevrolet Traverse Wins IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK Award

Chevrolet Traverse Wins IIHS TOP SAFETY PICK Award | Fort Meade, FL

The IIHS has named the 2021 Chevrolet Traverse a TOP SAFETY PICK, displaying Chevrolet’s dedication to building vehicles that protect families in every situation and at every turn.

In order to qualify for a TOP SAFETY PICK award, a vehicle must earn a “Good” rating in each of the six crash tests administered by the IIHS: driver-side small overlap front, passenger-side small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength, and head restraint tests.

Vehicles must also offer a front crash prevention system. After going through vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-pedestrian tests, the system must achieve an “Advanced” or “Superior” rating for a car to be named a TOP SAFETY PICK. In addition, the vehicle must offer at least one headlight package that receives a “Good” or “Acceptable” designation.

The available LED projector headlights on the Premier and High Country trims of the 2021 Traverse performed well enough to pass the test and earn the award. Both of the Traverse’s optional automatic emergency braking systems received “Superior” ratings in the vehicle-to-vehicle evaluation.

In the vehicle-to-pedestrian testing, the Traverse’s Automatic Emergency Braking with Front Pedestrian Braking took home a “Superior” score, while the Enhanced Automatic Emergency Braking with Front Pedestrian Braking earned an “Advanced” rating.
