There are a couple of reasons why I like the new 2018 Chevrolet Traverse. This large SUV has a lot of modern features to offer such as roomy, versatile seats or mighty cargo hold. Its 9-speed automatic transmission is very powerful and we can find plenty of standard tech. I will list Standard Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, HID headlights and etc. Due to its modern design, the new 2018 model comes with impressive handling and ride quality. As for the competition on the market, the most serious rivals are the 2018 Ford Explorer, the 2018 Honda Pilot and the 2018 Nissan Pathfinder.
2018 Chevrolet Traverse Redesign
The outer appearance of 2018 Chevrolet Traverse is conservative, however, the new model is still attractive and classy. The exterior design comes with more rugged character due to more aggressive front end and sharper lines and curves. The most dominant exterior details are the tall sides, elegantly wraparound taillights and a HID headlights with LED running lights. Interested buyers have to know that this mighty SUV is available in seven trims. The list starts with L, LS and LT Cloth models. Additionally, the remaining four trim options are LT Leather, RS, Premier, and High Country.
The interior design of the new 2018 Chevrolet Traverse is very comfortable, neat and spacious. Its roomy cabin, which accommodates up to eight passengers, is modern and packed with plenty of interesting items. The driver and the passengers will certainly enjoy the ride thanks to very comfortable, supportive seats. However, the third row of seats isnt so comfortable. Dont get me wrong, the seats are also comfortable enough, but it would be more suitable for smaller occupants and kids. Its impressive amount of cargo space is unparalleled, I am talking about 23 cubic feet of space. As for the tech department, the list goes with a 7.0 touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay, a rearview camera and Bluetooth connectivity. Beside that, we can find Android Auto, six USB ports and three-zone climate control. More expensive models gets more features such as a larger 8.0-inch infotainment screen, rear cross-traffic alert, a 10-speaker Bose stereo, a heated steering wheel and much more.
