Comparison to all vehicles.  This plot shows RSC safety scores on the horizontal axis vs. the number of vehicles with each safety score (depicted by bar height and percentages at the bottom). Colors reflect vehicle safety, ranging from red (not that safe) to green (safer). For reference, a score of 0 implies a 0.15% chance of driver death (13% chance of driver injury) over 15 years, and a score of 100 reflects a 0.016% chance (1.4% chance of driver injury). The 2022 Chevrolet Traverse has a score of 84, implying a 0.036% chance of driver death (3.2% chance of injury).

We estimate that the 2022 Chevrolet Traverse has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.0361% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 4.1187%, meaning the average driver has a 0.0361% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 4.1187% chance of being injured.

Compared to the average vehicle, the 2022 Chevrolet Traverse is 23% less likely to result in a fatal accident. Compared to other suvs, the 2022 Chevrolet Traverse is 11% less likely to result in a fatal accident.

Active safety features with Chevrolet's Chevy Safety Assist greatly enhance occupant safety by reducing the likelihood of a crash. All trims and versions of the 2022 Chevrolet Traverse include the following active safety systems: Forward Collision Alert (FCA), Automatic Emergency Braking with Front Pedestrian Braking, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, and Blind Spot Monitoring.

A safety feature that may make a vehicle safer, even if not at the forefront of technological advances, should still be considered. Side mirror turn signals are optional on the Chevrolet Traverse. They alert other vehicles of your intention to switch lanes, which allows the other vehicle's driver to prevent an impending accident with you.

And it is less safe than many comparable cars.
