Chevrolet is hoping the redesigned 2018 Traverse will spur interest in the crossover market after yet another month of lackluster sales. This week the automaker reported that profits are down more than 40 percent compared to last year at this time. Sales for nearly all of the automakers have fallen compared to a year ago when sales were soaring.
GM says the redesigned 2018 Chevrolet Traverse will start at $30,875. That does not include taxes, title and dealer fees. According to Chevrolet the family hauler has been reimagined from the ground up. The new Traverse will have best-in-class cargo space and more room for passengers than its competitors. The 2018 Chevrolet Traverse has seating for up to eight.

Steve Majoros, who oversees marketing for Chevy Crossovers says, “The all-new Chevrolet Traverse has a bold, new look that complements the full functionality our SUV customers demand. It’s designed to help make life on the road easier, and to look good while doing it. With creature comforts, convenience features and technologies to entertain passengers, Traverse is the total package.”

Chevrolet rolled out the 2018 Traverse mid-size SUV at the North American International Auto Show, in Detroit. It looks much more truck-like, a smaller version of the popular Suburban or Tahoe. It is sleeker and lighter than the old Traverse, but its wheelbase is longer by a couple of inches.

The 2018 Chevrolet Traverse will offer a number of different trim levels, including a sport model called the RS and a new top-of-the-line trim package called the High Country.

Standard features of 2018 Chevrolet Traverse

The 2018 Chevrolet Traverse has a number of popular new features that come standard, including second row seats that slide forward to allow easy access to the third row of seats. GM’s rear seat reminder, to help avoid a child being left in a hot car is also included as standard. The sport utility vehicle also has the rear vision camera to help avoid collisions and the teen driver technology to keep younger drivers less distracted. The Traverse also includes the built-in OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot. Owners can manage their vehicle remotely and check diagnostics with the myChevrolet mobile app3 via their smartphone.

Available upgrades

Chevrolet also has a number of upgrades available including, surround vision cameras provide a bird’s eye view of the vehicle to help make reversing, parking or trailering easier. A new, hands-free power liftgate is also available.

Wireless device charging is standard on Premier and High Country editions. A number of leather seat upgrades are also possible depending on the trim levels.

According to the Chevrolet pricing website, the 2017 Chevrolet Traverse started with a base MSRP price of $29,595.
