Every time I look at my Traverse from the back I can't help thinking something is missing. The liftgate is expansive and the tail lights seem too small leaving a vast area of boring sheet metal. Has anyone thought of anything to dress up this wasteland a bit? I was thinking of adding a horizontal racing strip across the back end but I'm not sure. :-\

I agree. However, for me at least, it has really grown on me. Personally i think having the dual exhaust helps a ton, but I actually love the way the Traverse looks from all sides.

The dual exhaust would definitely be an image enhancer but alas mine is an LT. No dual exhaust. :(

Poor photoshopped rendition of liftgate stripe:

I'm not sure where the discontent over the liftgate design comes from. There's a lot more going on there than on the back end of a Tahoo, for example, or in most pickup trucks. Face it, anyway, most of us bought Traverses for the huge functionality more than the style. At least I did.

I agree. But I think the thing is that the license plate is on the bumper. On the other Lambda's, its on the hatch. It looks cleaner on the hatch IMO. But the empty area does mean easier to clean ;D

I agree completely. The front end looks just fine but the oversized hiked up rear end :-[ isnt nearly as aesthetically pleasing. I know it is a matter of preference but of all the Lambdas I like the exterior of the Outlook the best.

Perhaps there could be chrome trim added, around the tail lights, then follow a line to the bowtie, on top and bottom of the tail lights and bowtie, that might look good, but not sure....would not be a straight line.

That sounds good but it's beyond my photoshop skills. Maybe some "artist" out there could mock one up. :thumb:

How about a two-tone paint scheme that makes the lift-gate appear to tie more to the bumper?

The more I look at pictures on the web, the more I think the Traverse in a darker color looks better from behind than the lighter ones. Mine is Gold Mist which makes it a lighter one. :banghead:

:) I installed a chrome talgate cover and is dresses it up a little, also thinking of installing pin stripping something small I still want the classy look it has over all.
