Traction control

Part of the StabiliTrak® Electronic Stability Control system, the traction control feature activates automatically every time you start your Traverse®, so it's always ready to help give you grip while accelerating on slippery surfaces. When one of the tires on a drive wheel loses traction and starts to spin more freely than the others, sensors detect the condition and send a signal to the vehicle's computerized controls. They then instantly cut back engine power and apply brake pressure only to the slipping wheel, so the drive wheels with the best traction do the most work. That gives you go power on icy or rain-slick pavement, keeping you in control when you need it most.
