SUV's continue to grow in popularity and with 40% market share it's clear they have won the vehicle sales race, at least for now. So why the growing popularity, you might ask? Well it could be anything from ride height, to an active lifestyle, to weather related and feeling more confident on the road. I mean we also can't forget about the flexible and functional nature of an SUV.
As the SUV trend rises, this has encouraged Automakers to up their game with more advanced and innovative technologies bringing you the 2018 Chevrolet Traverse. The Traverse has built a solid following over the years making it among one of the top SUV choices among families but what is especially cool is that the 2018 Traverse makes for the models first full redesign since its debut 9 years ago. The Traverse engineers had a clean slate and new opportunity to revamp every aspect and feature of this already popular SUV. At first glance you notice that the exterior looks nothing like the outgoing model with more defined body lines and a completely distinctive look altogether.
The bigger and bolder Traverse has an extended wheel base, which grew the vehicles interior and head room in every row not to mention leg room in the 2nd and 3rd rows. The 2018 Traverse also dropped weight giving it more get up and go. Say hello to a new 3.6 liter V-6 combines with a new 9-speed transmission, a new drive-train that makes for 310 horsepower, 29 more than previous models and 266 pound-feet of torque. Passing will never be a problem during a drive, even with passengers and a weekends worth of luggage. Towing capacity has boosted to 5,000 pounds and best of all so has the fuel economy from 15 city and 22 highway to 18 city and 27 highway in the new model (17/25 for all wheel drive models).
If you are looking for your next family SUV, the 2018 Traverse is sure to impress with its entirely new redesign inside and out.
