The all-new Traverse is powered by a direct injection 3.6L V6 that puts out 288 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque, which is 18 more horsepower and 22 more lb-ft of torque than the current Lambda crossovers. The EPA has rated the FWD Traverse at 17/24 mpg and the AWD Traverse at 16/23. All of the GM crossovers will eventually be powered by the new 3.6L engine, but not all will have the same towing capabilities. The Outlook is only capable of towing 4,500 pounds, while the Traverse can tow up to 5,200 thanks to its larger grille that improves cooling for the engine and transmission.
