It seems that 2018 Chevy Traverse has planned the breakthrough in market of crossover from GM Company, after the competition with the great SUV cars which already exist on the market of the popular brand names. Maybe that is a reason why is Chevrolet, after the first generation of Traverse and more and less good selling has decided to change position on the market and offer something different for crossover lovers.

The first big change in new 2018 Chevy Traverse which is visible and measurable is its longer wheelbase, long as on GMC Acadia and bigger and robust front end. Some people noticed the similarity with the Tahoe or Suburban from the same manufacturer, mostly because of bigger LED headlights and lightings with chrome 20 inches wheels. Bold and refined new look – that their managers said and we can’t add anything more. Slightly rounded front end with beveled corners just a bit will catch looks on the street and that is only which new Chevy can offer on the overcrowded SUV market.
Giving a longer wheelbase, 2018 Chevy Traverse provided bigger space for cargo and passengers. That will be a first feature which will buyers describe to their families. New third row inside, more cargo space and definitely larger room for the driver are those things which we expect inside of the SUV. Comfort and luxury seats have the possibility of changing the position and shape, while all three rows give more legroom, including a third one. Do not be a worry if you feel that third row a little tight, there is a possibility of moving whole second row forward to make space for passengers in the third row. A special gift is a nice light below the driver’s legs so the driver can put legs there and activate hands-free power liftgate.
There will be a couple of trim versions, as always, but manufacturer promised 3.5 liter V6 engine paired with 9-speed automatic transmissions in basic model. Sports drivers can expect 2.0 liter V6 turbocharged engine with the same type of transmission, but that is not all. Special smart technology provides stop/go option which thinks instead of you and according to the driving, road, and other factors, change the speed and speeding up. This provides more fuel economy 20 mpg in city and 23 mpg on highway and better environment care.
