2018 Chevrolet Traverse news, pictures, specifications, and information

Bold, refined new look with expected segment-best cargo space, third-row legroom

DETROIT — Chevrolet today introduced the all-new 2018 Traverse. Wrapped in bold and refined styling, the completely redesigned Traverse offers technologies to help keep passengers of all ages and lifestyles comfortable and connected.

Traverse will deliver what is expected to be best-in-class third-row legroom, maximum cargo room and passenger volume wîth an enhanced roster of available active safety features.

'The all-new Traverse offers the ultimate in style and convenience for the §egmènt, wîth the versatility customers need and a thoughtful, spacious design they'll love,' said Alan Batey, president of GM North America and brand chief, Global Chevrolet. 'It's the midsize SÚV designed to help keep you safe, comfortable and connected.'

When it goes on sale this fall, the 2018 Traverse will be the fourth updated crossover or SÚV from Chevrolet within a year, joining the Trax, Bolt EV and 2018 Equinox, further strengthening the brand's crossover and SÚV lineup.

'Nobody in the offers a broader, fresher lineup of SÚVs and crossovers than Chevrolet,' said Batey. 'From the all-electric Bolt EV to America's longest-running nameplate, Suburban, we've got something for every customer and lifestyle.'

Engine : 6-cylinder
Power: 305 hp
Torque: 260 ft-lbs

9-speed Automatic
Bold and refined
The 2018 Traverse has a new look inspired by Chevrolet's full-size SÚVs, wîth purposeful proportions complemented by premium cues such as chrome accents, LED signature lighting and available D-Optic LED headlamps.


Chevrolet is adding two new trim levels for the 2018 Traverse — the sporty RS and luxurious High Country — to offer customers more choices for a personalized appearance.

The new RS package includes unique, blacked-out exterior cues wîth a black chrome grille, black bowtie, 20-inch wheels and more.

The High Country trim features premium content and technology, including a unique interior trim featuring Loft Brown leather appointments wîth suede accents, 20-inch polished wheels, High Country badging, D-Optic headlamps, standard twin-clutch AWD and power-fold third row seats.

'The all-new Traverse blends Chevrolet's characteristic SÚV cues wîth capability and refinement,' said John Cafaro, executive director, Global Chevrolet Design. 'Inside and out, it offers style wîth a purpose.'

With available seating for up to eight and a longer wheelbase than the current model, the Traverse has few peers when it comes to capacity and roominess. In fact, the new Traverse is expected to offer best-in-class passenger volume as well as max cargo room at 98.5 cubic feet (2,789 liters), while greater storage options and larger bins throughout the ergonomically optimized cabin are designed to enhance convenience and versatility.

Loading the Traverse is a breeze wîth a new Chevrolet bowtie logo lamp feature illuminating the ground to show where drivers need to place a foot to activate the available hands-free power liftgate.

A new split-folding second-row seat improves on the Traverse's original Smart Slide® feature. The curbside seat is capable of tipping up and sliding forward, even wîth a forward-facing child seat in place, to provide open and easy access to the third row. Third-row legroom is expected to be the most spacious in the §egmènt at 33.7 inches (856 mm).

Connected and protected
The 2018 Traverse offers purposeful technology designed to help keep passengers safe, comfortable and connected.

Chevrolet's latest connectivity technologies include available 7- and 8-inch-diagonal MyLink infotainment systems designed to support Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as an available OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot. (Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are products of Apple and Google and their terms and privacy statements apply. Requires compatible smartphone and data plan rates apply.)

Passengers will have access to ÚSB charging ports in all three seating rows, available wireless charging and §teering wheel-mounted phone and audio controls. Chevrolet's Rear Seat Reminder feature is standard on all trim levels.

When it comes to helping to protect passengers, a comprehensive suite of available safety technologies and adaptive crash-avoidance features offers ease of use and added peace of mind, wîth new available features including:
◾Surround Vision
◾D-Optic LED headlamps (standard on High Country and Premier)
◾Lane Keep Assist wîth Lane Departure Warning
◾Front Pedestrian Braking
◾Forward Collision Alert
◾Low and High-Speed Forward Automatic Braking.

Teen Driver is standard, allowing parents to set certain controls and review performance in order to help encourage better driving habits, even when parents are not in the vehicle.

Performance and efficiency
A new 3.6L V-6 and nine-speed automatic transmission form the standard propulsion system, expected to offer nearly 10 percent more horsepower than the current model and a GM-estimated 25 mpg highway (FWD). The combination also supports an estimated 5,000-pound (2,268 kg) trailering capacity when properly equipped.

Sporting the new RS trim, the Traverse will exclusively feature a 2.0L turbocharged engine that provides a unique driving experience, wîth more maximum torque than the V-6. It is also paired wîth the nine-speed automatic transmission. (posted on conceptcarz.com)

Both engines feature new intelligent stop/start technology that determines the best times for fuel-saving engine-stop events, based on a variety of driving factors.

New Traction Mode Select is standard on all models and allows the driver to make real-time adjustments to the vehicle's driving mode to account for varying road conditions. On available AWD models, it also allows the system to be completely disconnected from the rear axle, which helps save fuel and enhances refinement.

High Country's exclusive Advanced AWD system employs twin-clutch technology that optimizes traction for every condition it encounters. It is engineered for optimal performance in wet, snowy and icy conditions, while also providing enhanced stability in dry conditions.
