Check out the newly redesigned Chevy Traverse! The 2018 Chevy Traverse, which is hitting showroom floors this year, features more sophisticated exterior styling, new trims and significant performance enhancements. With enough room for the whole family, the redesigned Chevy Traverse is a home run for many reasons. That said, many auto buyers may have questions about what this new crossover SUV has to offer. Are you thinking of taking the Traverse for a test drive? Read on for eight myths and facts about the new 2017 Chevrolet Traverse.
The redesigned Chevrolet Traverse is actually larger than before. The crossover is about half an inch longer, and the wheelbase is 2 inches wider. This is part of the reason why the second-row seats get an extra 3 inches of legroom.
The Traverse is a third-row crossover SUV that can seat up to seven people, and the new Traverse features more passenger legroom.
In addition to two new engines, the 2018 Chevy Traverse is getting a nine-speed automatic for smoother, more efficient driving.
Foward collision alerts with automatic braking, lane-departure warnings and a surround-view camera are just some of the safety systems available on the new Traverse.
The new Traverse is getting two new trims -- the RS and High Country trims. The Traverse RS will be the most bare-bones trim level, while the High Country will be the most luxurious available trim.
The 2018 Chevrolet Traverse will come with a 3.6-liter V6 engine that generates 305 horsepower, which is a 20-horsepower improvement over the previous model year.
The new RS trim is getting an optional turbocharged engine that pumps out 255 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. That's 35 more pound-feet of torque than the V6 offers.
