Over the last couple of years, Chevy has been making huge leaps forward with their SUVs. They’ve brought us the new Trax, the new Equinox, and the upgraded Tahoe and Suburban. And hey, even the new Chevy Bolt EV is considered a crossover. To complete the Chevy SUV lineup, the 2018 Chevy Traverse was introduced at the North American International Auto Show. Decked out like it’s out of a sci-fi movie, the 2018 Chevy Traverse is a very welcome addition to the Chevy lineup.
Comfortably seating up to 8 passengers, the 2018 Chevy Traverse is the best alternative to the minivan. The Traverse offers tons of safety features and best-in-class third-row seating, making it an excellent option for family trips. Available safety technologies on the new 2018 Chevy Traverse include:
- Surround Vision
- D-Optic LED headlamps (standard on High Country and Premier)
- Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning
- Front Pedestrian Braking
- Forward Collision Alert
- Low and High-Speed Forward Automatic Braking
To bring you the latest in automotive entertainment, the 2018 Chevy Traverse will be available with 7- or 8-inch MyLink Infotainment systems with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support. Passengers will also be able to charge their devices with USB charging ports on all three seating rows. Wireless charging and OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi technologies are also available.
The new 2018 Chevy Traverse is a pretty wild departure from the current generation Traverse. The newer Traverse is significantly more bold with sharper curves and jagged edges. It appears much more aggressive and holds much more personality than the outgoing model. The interior has been redesigned and rebuilt with fantastic new materials, new technology, and an expansive new design.
For the new model, the 2018 Chevy Traverse will be available with either a 2.0L 4-cylinder turbocharged engine or a 3.6L 6-cylinder engine. The 4-cylinder option puts out a lofty 255 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque, while the 6-cylinder engine puts out 305 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. Both engines are mated to a Hydra-Matic 9T50 9-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive variants of the 2018 Chevy Traverse will offer as much as 20 mpg city or 25 mpg highway. Not bad for an 8 passenger SUV.
