The all-new Chevrolet Traverse is still a large family vehicle for 2018. It has opted not to follow the lead of the sister GMC Acadia, which was downsized as part of its reinvention, breaking up the triumvirate that also includes the still-large Buick Enclave.

It’s been nine years since Traverse last time went trough any changes and that period is now over. On Monday Chevrolet finally presented new 2018 Chevrolet Traverse who to stay competitive eventually underwent some changes. It is expected for this model to be in the showrooms by the end of fall.

Chevrolet characterizes itself as the fastest-growing full-line carmaker in the U.S. But not all of its models are keeping pace with the overall score. The Traverse is a case in point. Chevy’s SUV lineup is among the most comprehensive in the business with six nameplates, and the Traverse operates at the larger end of the lineup. Based on front-drive architecture, it’s categorized as a crossover SUV, as distinct from rear-drive body-on-frame big boys like the Tahoe and Suburban.

As with other recent GM vehicles, the Traverse will feature a broad array of high-tech comfort and convenience features. There will be 7- and 8-inch versions of the MyLink infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, as well as an available WiFi hotspot. All three seating rows are fitted with USB charge points, and wireless phone charging is available for up front.

2018 Chevrolet Traverse Specs

The new Traverse is similar in dimension to the model it replaces, but an extra 2.0 inches of wheelbase and 0.7 inch more overall length creates room behind each row of seats. The second row can slide with a child seat intact to ease entry into the back row, where there is more room than in the larger Tahoe. And the Traverse can swallow the obligatory 4-by-8-foot piece of plywood after opening the hatch with a swish of a leg.

The exterior design also got its much-needed upgrade. It was facelifted a couple of years back, but it was yet trailing behind the competition. More muscle and aggressivity was added with much of its design cues being drawn from its larger siblings Tahoe and Suburban. On the front end, new Traverse adopted Chevy’s new look all the way, but you can’t shake the feeling that it also looks like Ford’s Explorer.

The net of the increase is a more voluminous Traverse with the second- and third-row seats folded flat the rear cargo hold will now accept a 4 x 8-foot sheet of building material lying flat, according to Chevy. And it’s also a Traverse with increased structural rigidity plus revised suspension (improved ride and handling) and lower curb weights.

Inside, the Traverse gets the latest and greatest tech that Chevrolet has to offer. This means Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a 4G LTE WiFi hotspot, a seven or eight-inch infotainment touchscreen, and USB ports for all three rows. There are a number of optional safety features, like surround view cameras, lane-keep assist with lane-departure warnings, pedestrian braking, forward collision alert, and automatic braking.

The new 2018 Chevrolet Traverse will get a fresh look, when it comes to design. Slightly inclined, semi-sharpened front headlights with LED technology fit quite nicely on the front fascia of the new model. The front grille is split in two, separated by the front bumper. Fog lights, as well as daytime running lights are positioned near the side air intakes on each side of the bumper. The new Traverse is 203.7 inches long, 78.5 inches wide, with a wheelbase width of 118.9 inches. Total curb weight of the car is 4713 pounds. The model will be offered in many different colors, such as Blue Velvet Metallic, Silver Ice Metallic, Summit White, Tungsten Metallic, etc.

2018 Chevrolet Traverse Engine

It is only offered with the 2.0-liter turbo I-4 engine and front-wheel drive, and it’s tuned for a different driving dynamic even though it has the four-cylinder rather than the more powerful 3.6-liter V-6 available on other trim levels.

The V-6 generates 305 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque; the Ecotec turbo I-4 puts out 255 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque. They are mated to the new nine-speed automatic transmission that GM developed in partnership with Ford and that helps save a few mpg. The nine-speed makes it possible to offer standard stop/start technology with both engines. The vehicle also has low rolling resistance tires.

Although the current Chevrolet Traverse is using a V6 engine, outputting 281 horsepower under its hood, we might expect an even more powerful unit. Since the model is likely to be bigger and heavier than the new Acadia, its 2.5-liter inline 4-cylinder isn’t going to cut it. Therefore, the 3.6-liter V6 unit, capable of outputting 310 horsepower will be perfect choice for the company. The extra horsepower do make a difference, especially in larger vehicles and especially on the inclines.

The base engine will be a 3.6-liter variable valve V6 paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission that Chevrolet claims will deliver a 10% improvement in fuel economy. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has not yet certified the vehicle’s miles per gallon rating, but GM estimated it will be about 25 in highway driving for the V6. The 2017 Traverse rated 22 m.p.g. in highway driving.

Chevy sold more than five hundred thousand since its introduction in 2008. All new Traverse will be available in seven trims, and all of them excluding RS will feature GM’s 3.6-liter V-6 mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission. This unit is capable of producing 305hp and 260 lb-ft of torque.
