Take this opportunity to tour some of the most exciting offerings available on this year’s all-new version of Chevy’s three-row crossover SUV.

Interior and Exterior Design

At first glance, it’s clear that Chevy has built the Traverse to be a more accommodating crossover SUV. In addition to its more imposing exterior presence, Chevy also expects its new three-row crossover to features class-leading passenger and cargo space. This comes alongside available premium features like LED headlamps, 20-inch rims, available leather upholstery and suede trim accents, and much more.

Safety Features

Family auto shoppers want a vehicle that will keep every passenger safe. The 2018 Chevy Traverse takes this model to the next level, with premium safety technologies like:

  • Forward collision warning and mitigation
  • Lane departure warning and mitigation
  • Surround-view camera
  • Front pedestrian braking

Powertrain Specs and Fuel Efficiency

The 2018 Traverse will be offered with two capable engines, both of which will be matched to a nine-speed automatic transmission and offered with front-wheel or all-wheel drive. Here’s at look at both:

  • Base Engine: The standard engine on most versions of the Traverse will be a 3.6L V6 that makes 305 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. Chevy estimates that it will be able to get 25 mpg highway and 18 mpg city.
  • RS Engine: Opt for the RS model for a turbocharged 2.0L inline-four that gets 255 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. Chevy’s estimates for this powertrain are 23 mpg highway and 20 mpg city.
