When it comes to family-friendly transportation, millions of Americans already know they can put their trust—and their loved ones—in a Chevrolet. But they’re not alone. A wide range of third-party leaders have also recognized what Chevy can bring to the table, and that includes Kelley Blue Books KBB.com, which recently named the Chevrolet Suburban and Traverse to its roster of “Top 10 Family Cars of 2011.”
For big, active families, no other mainstream rival can come close to offering the advantages of the Suburban. Able to hold nine passengers and tow up to 9,600 lbs., the Suburban boasts more cargo space behind its third row—a full 45.8 cubic feet—than the new Explorer provides behind its second row. But at the same time, it’s more fuel efficient than the Ford Expedition. Needless to say, all that room leaves plenty of space for amenities, too, with the Suburban offering such features as power-release fold-and-tumble second-row seating, remote start, first- and second-row heated seats, ultrasonic rear parking assist, a tri-zone automatic climate system, rearview camera, touch-screen navigation and a rear-seat DVD entertainment system with an eight-inch monitor.
The Traverse, which, like the Suburban, is a multiple-time member of the annual list, “remains among the most family-friendly vehicles on the market,” according to KBB.com. That’s thanks to a roomy interior that can hold up to eight people or 80.7 cubic feet of cargo, relatively strong fuel-efficiency numbers and a five-star overall crash-test rating from the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA). Also earning kudos from KBB.com were the Traverse’s style and “surprisingly nimble handling.”
In other words, if you’re looking for a vehicle that’s going to please your family, you might want to visit the Chevy family first.
