2011 Chevrolet Traverse Earns IIHS Top Safety Pick Highest possible ratings

DETROIT – The 2011 Chevrolet Traverse, Buick Enclave and GMC Acadia crossovers today received a Top Safety Pick designation from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety for models built after January.

“Car buyers shopping for safety get a big head start with vehicles earning our Top Safety Pick designation,” said Institute president Adrian Lund. “This award highlights the elite group of vehicles that earn top Institute safety ratings across the board, and that have electronic stability control.”

Vehicles named Top Safety Picks must achieve the highest possible IIHS ratings of “Good” in front, side, rear and rollover crash protection tests in addition to having electronic stability control.

The Traverse, Enclave and Acadia earlier earned a 5-star overall vehicle score in the revised New Car Assessment Program (NCAP) run by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.


“The Top Safety Pick Award clearly demonstrates our commitment to protecting customers and their families,” said Jeff Boyer, General Motors executive director of vehicle safety. “We stand behind these vehicles and the variety of active and passive safety technologies they offer – all engineered with precision to meet the high expectations of our customers.”
