2018 Chevrolet Traverse – Exterior Expectations and Luxurious Interior Design
The 2018 Chevrolet Traverse gets a hexagonal grille with narrow headlamps which generally improves the SUV’s appearance. The side mirrors are much similar to what we have seen on the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox crossover. The upcoming Chevy comes with a more upright profile and gets a redesigned rear end. It includes narrow taillights and a bigger cargo space.
For the interior part of the car, the 2018 Chevy Traverse has received new upgrades as well. For the second row, a quick release seat will be available in order to simplify the accessibility to the next row. The 2018 Chevy Traverse will come with upgraded technological features such as Android Auto, a hands-free power liftgate. Also, an Apple CarPlay, a 360-degree camera and a rear-seat reminder system just to mention a few. Safety is now guaranteed due to the inclusion of features such as emergency braking and adaptive cruise control.
2018 Chevrolet Traverse – Engine and Performance
The upcoming 2018 Chevy Traverse comes with a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine capable of generating up to 255 horsepower. The new Chevy will be powered through a front-wheel drivetrain with a better suspension system than its predecessor. There will be two trim levels for new 2018 Traverse, which is, an RS inline and V6 powered engine.
Both trim levels will be paired with a 9-speed automatic transaxle transmission system. According to Chevrolet, the upgrades will greatly contribute to reducing the fuel consumption in general. The front wheel V6 will get an estimation of 18/25 mpg city ratings according to the company while the four-cylinder RS is excepted to earn about 20/23 mpg.
2018 Chevrolet Traverse – Price and Release Date
The 2018 Chevrolet Traverse is expected to arrive in the market at the end of this year. Chevrolet has not yet announced the price. But if we were to give it a rough estimation, it might range from $25,000-$30,000 with a monthly lease price of about $500.
Adding new features to a car greatly boosts up the sells, nobody knows this better than General Motors. The new Chevrolet Traverse packs a few surprises to keep the upcoming Chevy in the race for as long as possible. It is more spacious than its predecessor and packs a punch with its turbocharged V6.
However, in the modern-day world, power and space are not what defines a great SUV. It has to offer more than that in order to remain at the top of the list. This is perhaps one area that Chevrolet will have to look into if they want to keep their SUVs ahead of others. All in all, the new Chevy offers what its predecessor couldn’t and this is what makes it such a classy car for family use.
