The 2018 Chevy Traverse is an SUV that has received a much overdue update. This update has yielded a stiffer, larger, roomier vehicle that fits in the crossover category comfortable as a full-sized SUV. The new updates were revealed during the 2017 auto show in Detroit.
2018 Chevy Traverse – Stylish Design:
The larger design creates a roomier feel and what Chevy defines as a bolder, refined look. This extra size is minimal, but the overall impact and perks for the vehicle will prove beneficial to any CUV driver. This vehicle has enhanced safety features, improved suspension, and a number of additional features offered for a customizable experience.
With the minor increases in the length and width, the wheelbase has expanded substantially. This SUV has also been made lighter by over 300 pounds. The improvement provides better control when driving. The more ridged design, as many automakers have moved to, gives a more comfortable feeling and a safer construction for the 2018 Chevy Traverse. The improved suspension will provide a better overall performance and ride. When looking at the general updates, it is easy to see how fuel efficiency was also improved on this redesigned crossover SUV.
The additional features that now come standard on this updated Chevy Traverse include improved cargo room (98.2 cubic feet – according to the Chevrolet site), comfortable third-row seating, and USB ports around the CUV for charging any device. The new traction mode integrated into the SUV will allow for adjustments to be made in all weather conditions. This will effectively ensure the best possible traction. For the family that stays connected, it also provides connections to both Apple and Android’s car programs and hotspots connectivity. Interior sound dampening technologies ensure the vehicle will have a smooth ride inside even when it’s noisy outside.
2018 Chevy Traverse – Performance:
With the new 6-speed automatic transmission, the 3.6-liter V6 has improved pickup, speed, and control. With the new improvements, the engine reaches a full 288 HP. The incredible improvements have also yielded better fuel efficiency. Best is 24 highway miles per gallon for the front wheel drive. All-wheel drive is rated at 23 miles per gallon.
