2018 Chevy Traverse Concept, Redesign, Specs, Debut, Release Date, Price
Our spy photographers caught the testing mule of the upcoming 2018 Chevy Traverse in spring of 2016 and its recognizable look leads us to assume that Chevrolet might develop this new crossover with the elongated version based on GMC Acadia. But, it is different from GMC sibling since it will come out with longer dimension and it comes as three-row of car seats. If it comes to be true, it will be launched as the second generation to battle with other SUVs.
2018 Chevy Traverse Exterior
Allow us to say that it is hard to predict what the company does for the exact design of this new generation, but we can speculate that it might go with the similar design just like the latest model. In a word, it will be a new 2018 Chevy Traverse with the similar body shapes as Acadia, but the difference is it will have stretched rear end.
2018 Chevy Traverse Interior
Inside the cabin, there will be some significant changes. As other GM crossovers that were debuted recently, it is important to have a new center console with a large screen that supports Android Auto and CarPlay. We would be happy if there will be new multifunctional steering wheel too. The most notable changes for 2018 Chevy Traverse should be its equipment level. The current model had a problem because the equipment was incomplete. Therefore, it is important to have new LED daytime running lights, keyless entry with start/stop button, power tailgate, collision warning, lane departure and other important features too.
2018 Chevy Traverse Engine
Thankfully, the new modular platform provides lightweight design and this will cut the current weight so that this SUV has better performance and fuel economy than before. However, buyers have no options left for the engine side. 2018 Chevy Traverse will only go with one engine. At this time, it is speculated to be the 3.6 liters and V6 engine that is capable of producing the amount of output for about 310 hp. This engine supports the heavy 7-seater car really well. But, it is important to concern on the fuel consumption too.
2018 Chevy Traverse Release Date and Price
2018 Chevy Traverse will be a new crossover SUV that will start its debut at Detroit Auto Show in the beginning of 2017 and it will hit the market in the middle of 2017, but this is only a speculation. About the price, we cannot expect that the price is still the same as the current model which is only about $30,000. We believe that its new development and improvement will force the company to slightly increase the price.
