The all-new 2018 Chevrolet Traverse that has been fully redesigned was just unveiled at the North American International Auto Show. It is now longer, wider, and can now accommodate up to eight passengers instead of the traditional seating for seven. The 2018 Traverse has also adopted a truck design that makes it look bolder while staying luxurious in its new design.
Two New Trims Would Be Introduced For The Traverse
The 2018 Chevy Traverse will come in two new trims, namely: High Country and RS. The High Country trim would pack a 3.6liter V6 engine in its base model. Power would be distributed to its nine-speed automatic transmission.
Although there is still no official rating by the United States Environment Protection agency, General Motors claims that the new Traverse would have a 10 percent fuel economy improvement. The company estimates it to have an economy rating of 25 miles per gallon in the highway, which is better than the previous model that has an official rating of 22 miles per gallon in the highway.
The second trim of the 2018 Chevy Traverse, the RS, would be equipped with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine. It would have the same nine-speed automatic transmission as the High Country Version. In addition, the RS trim would have black chrome grilles and 20-inch wheels.
New Safety Features And Technology For The Truck-Like SUV
Safety features for both trims include Surround Vision, lane-keep assist, forward collision alert, front pedestrian braking and forward automatic braking. LED headlights would only be offered on the High Country and the Premium trims. Thethird-roww seat for the 2018 Chevy Traverse would also have more legroom, allowing for eight passengers, including the driver, to seat comfortably.
