Picked up last Sunday. LT 1 fwd with convenience package.Lease was up on the 2015 traverse. Wife is happy so that's all that counts. Leased it under my business so that helps. No money down just $80 motor vehicle had $3000 in GM points paying $325 a month. I feel I hammered out a fair deal. Went last Sunday pouring rain end of the month and tried my best. Drove it first time today nice power love the nine speed transmission. I'll give a full review soon.

Awesome steering wheel! I put my hand at the 6:00 o'clock position when I drive which is why I don't like 3-spoke steering wheels. That steering wheel is like the one on my Buick.

We saw the Redline Edition at the State Fair (grey on black rims) and my wife fell in love with it. Sharp looking SUV for sure.

But, we wont be trading in the Buick anytime soon.

I was shopping for a large crossover to replace the Durango last weekend. Lots to like about the new Traverse, but the relatively high MSRP, 90's style steering wheel and dash buttons, lack of discounts and big question about 1st model year reliability made it a non-starter for me.

Got a '17 Explorer Limited instead. It's been around for 7 years in current form so most glitched should be worked out, and $8,500 off MSRP.

Good luck with the Traverse.

I tried to find a leftover 2017 Traverse for the huge discounts but was to late. You got a great deal on the explorer.

I wanted an Explorer over the GM Lambda Series. But we have four kids and the Ford has a much smaller third row.

I wish Ford would make an EL Explorer or my wife was more comfortable driving a full-size SUV.
