One of Kelley Blue Book’s writers and critics put the 2018 Chevrolet Traverse through its paces last month. This all-new family SUV put its best foot forward on a 700-mile family road trip and test drive. That kind of mileage really lets a tester get a feel for all the strengths and weaknesses of a car. Luckily, KBB put together their verdict so that you can see the Traverse’s capabilities without the long haul, and they say it’s a winner!
The 2018 Chevrolet Traverse brings a new style both inside and out. The exterior is composed of sleek lines and careful proportions, so that this big SUV looks sleek and tidy. New touches, like the body-colored C-pillar and futuristic headlights, accent the Traverse’s sophisticated look. Inside, the Traverse seats seven or eight occupants in style and comfort. It’s full of soft-touch surfaces and a classy gray-on-gray interior with a few piano-black surfaces.
Many families need a lot of space to haul both people and cargo. The 2018 Chevrolet Traverse easily swallows five suitcases in the cargo area. It offers plenty of space to keep all three rows of seats up, and stash five suitcases and a backpack without blocking the driver’s rear view. If you need to really stock up your SUV on a trip, the Traverse also offers a Rear Camera Mirror, to give you a wide and unobstructed view behind the vehicle.
The 2018 Chevrolet Traverse offers superb performance on the highway and the in city. On pothole-riddled city streets, its suspension absorbs big and small bumps and isolates the cabin. Its stiff body also keeps it steady and controlled through the corners. Although the Traverse is big enough for the whole family, it maneuvers through the city with the ease of a smaller SUV. It offers a tight turning radius and good sightlines, and you can add on a surround-view camera for painless parallel parking.
Highway driving is also smooth and fast. The 2018 Chevrolet Traverse has an updated powertrain, and it lost a few pounds during the update, as well. The 3.6L V6 engine now makes 310 horsepower, and the 2018 Traverse is 350 pounds lighter than the previous model. It puts out a satisfying yet inconspicuous engine rumble. The nine-speed automatic transmission is smooth and precise, and downshifts happily to give you plenty of passing power. And with up to 22 MPG, this SUV will take your family anywhere you want to go. Whether you’re heading to soccer practice or on a long road trip, the Traverse will take you there in style and comfort!
