Big Changes on the 2018 Chevy Traverse

The next-generation Chevy Traverse is ready to take on all of life's hustle and bustle, from corralling the kids during the daily carpool to providing a home on the road for your cross-country trips.

The new 2018 model showcases a fully revamped look which is highlighted by features like chrome accents and vivid LED lighting. Its interior is also improved and now includes new split-folding second-row seats and a choice of second-row captain's chairs. Two new trims debut as well (RS and High Country), and new Traction Mode Select is now standard on every Traverse model, giving drivers the opportunity to customize performance based on road conditions.

Ample room is important for families and the 7-8 passenger SUV also delivers here as well. In fact, according to Chevrolet, the new 2018 Traverse is projected to have best-in-class max cargo space, passenger volume and third-row legroom. Continue our 2018 Chevrolet Traverse review below!
