The redesigned 2018 Chevrolet Traverse offers tons of upgraded, improved features this year. There’s also an all-new RS model to consider! This aggressive, turbocharged model boasts new style and sportiness on top of this midsize SUV’s outstanding utility and space.
The 2018 Chevrolet Traverse RS features a more street-inspired style. It’s part of a six-trim expanded lineup for the Traverse, offering more styles and features while staying focused on capability and convenience. This midsize SUV offers best-in-class maximum cargo room at 98.2 cubic feet. It also has lots of upgraded technology from the previous model. This 2018 Traverse features even more convenient and modern touches, including an enhanced roster of available active safety features. “The 2018 Traverse offers a full product lineup positioned to effectively compete across the segment,” said Steve Majoros, Chevrolet marketing director for Cars and Crossovers. “By offering customers more choice with higher-end entries like the RS, which has a more street-inspired look, and top-of-the-line High Country, Chevrolet now offers a comfortable and connected Traverse for every lifestyle.”
The RS’s new street-inspired style stands out in the Traverse lineup. Its unique styling elements include a black grille, black window trim, black roof rails and black bowtie emblems, along with 20-inch aluminum wheels featuring a Dark Android finish. It’s not just a pretty face, either: it’s also the first Traverse to offer turbocharged performance! A power-dense, direct-injected Ecotec 2.0L turbo engine gives the 2018 Chevrolet Traverse RS up to 257 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. Not only that, but ninety percent of the RS’s peak torque is available at just 2,100 rpm. The Traverse also has upper and lower active aero shutters to help add to its efficiency and performance.
The 2018 Chevrolet Traverse RS also features Chevrolet’s nine-speed automatic transmission, which helps you conserve fuel and put power down when you need it. This new Traverse gets 20 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway. It also comes with a host of standard features to keep you and your family safe and comfortable. You’ll get HID headlamps and LED daytime running lamps, as well as Keyless Open with extended-range Remote Keyless Entry and remote start. Inside, the cabin welcomes you with Jet Black leather-appointed seating surfaces, heated front seats, Tri-zone automatic climate control, and a Bose premium 10-speaker audio system. You can navigate the intuitive infotainment center with the Chevrolet MyLink radio with 8-inch diagonal color touchscreen and navigation.
There are plenty of features to keep the whole family entertained and safe, too. OnStar® 4G LTE and the available built-in Wi-Fi® hotspot mean that your passengers can connect multiple devices at once. There’s also a multicolor driver information center display so you can keep an eye on everything from the driver’s seat. The 2018 Chevrolet Traverse RS also offers Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Rear Park Assist, Surround Vision, a Rear Camera Mirror, Rear Seat Reminder and Chevrolet Teen Driver systems. These safety features give you a hand in the driver’s seat and help keep your passengers safe on the road.
