THE FAMILY CROSSOVER
The 2018 Chevrolet Traverse arrives in style with a full redesign for the model year. The family-sized SUV interior features a plethora of interior space paired with upscale materials. A single powertrain delivers smooth performance in all types of road conditions. The Chevrolet Traverse is even available with up to 14 active safety features too.
Drivers have on engine option in the Chevrolet Traverse. All models come with front-wheel drive and an all-wheel drive system is available. The standard 3.6-liter V6 engine delivers a smooth 310 hp and 266 lb-ft of torque. It comes paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission. Properly equipped models can tow up to 5,000 lbs.
The Chevrolet Traverse is available with a Traction Mode Select system with four driving modes.
- FWD – The everyday driving setting, models equipped with all-wheel drive can easily increase their fuel economy by switching to front-wheel drive.
- 4X4/Snow – The 4x4 and Snow mode allows drivers to optimize the Traverse’s grip in slick road conditions.
- Off-Road – This mode is only available on models equipped with all-wheel drive. Switching to it will send more torque to the rear wheels, a factor that offers better performance on snow, gravel, and dirt.
- Tow/Haul – Models equipped with the Trailering Package will feature Tow/Haul mode. This setting keeps the SUV in low gears for optimized torque when towing.
The redesigned 2018 Traverse boasts an exterior athletic stance as it rolls out on 18-inch wheels. HID headlamps and LED daytime running lamps offer a touch of sophistication to the family SUV. Its Premier and High Country models are even available with a hands-free liftgate for easier access to the cargo area.
The Chevrolet Traverse features a standard third row and can seat up to eight passengers comfortably. Smart Slide® second-row seats enable drivers and passengers to easily access the third row. When the rear rows are folded down, drivers will enjoy up to a best-in-class 98.2 cu ft. of cargo space. There’s also a hidden storage compartment behind the available eight-inch touchscreen display.
When it comes to technology, there’s no topping the 2018 Traverse. Available Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ compatibility allows drivers to seamlessly sync their smartphone. From there, drivers can access their contacts, make hands-free calls, and take advantage of navigation apps. The 2018 Traverse is available with a built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi® hotspot. More powerful than a smartphone hotspot, the signal is capable of connecting to up to seven devices.
The Chevrolet Traverse holds its ground as one of the safest midsize SUVs on the market. The latest model features a standard Rear Vision Camera and is available with up to 14 additional active safety features. An available Rear Camera Mirror allows drivers to get a better view of what’s behind their SUV. Available IntelliBeam® Headlights automatically detect oncoming vehicles and switch between high and low beams automatically. An available Surround Vision Camera creates a bird’s-eye view of the Traverse, allowing drivers to easily see what lies around the vehicle.
Parents with young drivers can use the Teen Driver Mode to encourage good driving habits. Setting restrictions, like muting the audio until all seatbelts are buckled, puts more power in the hands of the parents, even when they aren’t in the vehicle.
The 2018 Chevrolet Traverse has yet to receive fuel economy ratings by the Environmental Protection Agency. The Chevrolet Traverse is equipped with Intelligent Stop/Start technology to help save fuel when driving in the city.
When it comes to a midsize SUV with room for the whole family, there are few competitors to the 2018 Chevrolet Traverse. From its spacious interior to a number of safety technologies, there’s simply no topping the new model. Check out the Chevrolet Traverse today at Wilson GM in Stillwater, OK.
