Exciting New Features

2018-chevy-traverse-exteriorThe fully redesigned 2018 Chevrolet Traverse will boast striking styling and cutting-edge technology. The newest model is also expected to deliver the best-in-class third-row leg room, maximum cargo space, and passenger volume. Drivers can look forward to an expanded array of available safety features for stress-free driving.

Two new Traverse trim levels are being added for 2018: the RS and the High Country. The RS will feature distinctive blacked-out exterior elements, a black chrome grille, a black bowtie, 20-inch wheels, and more. Onboard the High Country trim, drivers will find Loft Brown leather trim, suede accents, High Country badging, 20-inch wheels, D-Optic headlamps, power-fold third-row seats, and twin-clutch AWD.

The exterior has taken cues from Chevrolet’s full-size SUV models. Particularly noteworthy are the stately proportions and high-end adornments. Inside, the new Traverse will offer seating for up to eight passengers, as well as a lengthened wheelbase. The vehicle is anticipated to boast a best-in-class 98.5 cubic feet of cargo volume with the rear seats lowered. An available hands-free power liftgate will provide easy access to that class-leading space.


The 2018 Chevy Traverse is powered by a new 3.6L V6 engine, mated to a standard 9-speed automatic transmission. This combination will produce almost 10 percent more horsepower than the current Traverse. When properly equipped, the new Traverse will also boast a 5,000-pound towing capacity. The new RS model will feature a 2.0L turbo engine, also paired with the 9-speed automatic transmission. The new intelligent stop/start technology is offered for both engines to enhance fuel efficiency.
