Among other models, second-generation of Traverse is going to be updated and released. This three-row SUV has been spotted in the streets while testing, and this camouflaged vehicle will come as 2018 Chevrolet Traverse. Crossover is going to share platform with GMC Acadia, and main change is on wheelbase length. Larger Traverse is made to attract more buyers, and mainly in its homeland, United States.

Chevrolet is expected to redesign the Traverse full-size crossover for the 2018 model year, representing the second generation of the Traverse nameplate after selling the first-generation model for nine years.

It is difficult to predict what exactly the design of the new Traverse will be like. It might likely be stylistically similar to the latest models of Chevrolet, while in general, the body shapes will be very similar to the Acadia, only with stretched rear end.

To note, we initially believed that the 2017 Traverse will have been the all-new, second-generation model. However, we now believe that the all-new, second-generation Traverse will come to market for the 2018 model year.

We have seen the new GM Acadia, unveiled in the 2016 Detroit Auto Show and it’s been shrunken to fit the current needs of the customers, such as better fuel economy and larger pack of features. Why is this important to the Chevrolet Traverse? Well, the models share the GM’s Lambda large crossover platform and the new 2018 Chevrolet Traverse will be built on the long-wheelbase version of the new 2017 GM Acadia. That means the new Traverse will keep its current size, leaving a vacuum between Traverse and a more compact Equinox to slot a mid-sized crossover – most likely the new Chevy Trailblazer. Long story short, if you need a large vehicle, capable of seating up to eight passengers, with plenty of cargo room, with abundance of entertainment and safety features, which also handles well, you’ll need to consider this car.

2018 Chevrolet Traverse Price

2018 Chevrolet Traverse Redesign

The most significant changes are expected in the level of equipment. The current generation of Traverse significantly out of date in this respect, the car lacks many features required for customers. It is expected that the model might get LED daytime running lights, start/stop button (with keyless entry), power tailgate and other comfortable features. It might also get lane departure and collision warning.

2018 Chevrolet Traverse Specs

Below we have summarized some of the reviews about the features of the car exterior and interior 2018 Chevrolet Traverse. The car is expected to be a comfortable car for the ride by the community.

The new model will come in three trim levels – the LS, the LT and the LTZ. Even the base LS model will have much to offer, when it comes to the equipment and additional features. Some of them are the 60/40-split foldable second and third row seats, Bluetooth and USB connectivity, dual-zone air conditioning, OnStar telematics system, cruise control, automatic headlights, rearview camera, CD player, a 6.5-inch LCD touchscreen, with infotainment display, satellite and HD radio and much more. The LT trim adds up features such as rear parking sensors, leather-wrapped steering wheel, tilt-adjustable steering wheel, front heated seats, 10-speaker Bose audio system, etc. The most expensive LZT will come with the previously mentioned equipment, plus stuff like leather upholstery, built-in navigation system, collision warning system.

Lightweight materials provide strength as conventional materials used before. Savings on weight leads to better handling and, of course, fuel economy. That is main overall weakness of crossover class. However, each year we have some improvements and new Traverse is making another step in saving big money on petrol. Exact numbers are unknown yet, but GMC officials claim that their Acadia have lost 700 pounds. If diet brings similar results for Chevy crossover, it can probably gain few miles per gallon in overall mileage.

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

As for engine range, it seems that customers will not have many engines to choose from. There is only one option expected to appear in Traverse at the moment: 3.6-liter 310 HP V6. It is more than enough to drive a heavy 7-seater without any compromises. However, people might require a more fuel-efficient unit. Current generation uses the same displacement and cylinder configuration engine, however, less powerful only 281 HP available.

Another important part of fuel economy is good choice of powertrain. It has to be powerful, durable, economical and trusted. A V6 is big enough for this kind of vehicle. The 2018 Chevrolet Traverse is bigger than Acadia, so it is not likely for GMC to borrow 2.5-l unit to its sibling. More likely that 3.6-l engine is going to provide power for new Traverse. Similar to current powertrain, it can deliver more power. Predicted output is around 310 hp. Engine is mated to a 6-speed automatic gearbox. New front-wheel drive system is being finished in Chevy factories, and all-wheel drive will be optional.

A V6 is currently the only powertrain available on the Traverse so it is safe to assume that the 2017 Chevrolet Traverse will also offer a single choice. Rumors suggest, and we agree, that the car will benefit from the same 3.6-liter naturally aspirated V6 that can be found in the newest Acadia. This one offers a slightly more impressive 310 horsepower and 271 lb-ft of torque which is mostly thanks to direct injection, a larger compression ratio as well as larger intake and exhaust valves. If GM manages to finish their new transmission, then the upcoming Traverse might benefit from a new 9-speed automatic gearbox. If this won’t be available, though, then the older six-speed automatic from the Acadia should fit the bill perfectly.

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.
