The current Chevrolet Traverse has seen two different presidents. That’s how far the current Traverse stretches back to. But, as the saying goes, don’t fix it if it isn’t broke.
Chevrolet will finally unveil the all-new 2018 Chevrolet Traverse on the C1XX platform, or Chi, at the 2017 North American International Auto Show after years of service from the first-generation Traverse on the aged Lambda platform.
And since we have confirmation the large crossover will be in attendance, we want to hear what you would like to see from the 2018 Traverse when it’s unveiled in a few short weeks.
Foremost, Chevrolet says it will have a segment-best third-row legroom figure, something very important to buyers in this segment. Not only will passengers be comfy, but it means there will be plenty of cargo room. So, let’s assume cargo space and roominess will be present.
We’d like to see the Traverse take on a much more upscale look, knowing this is Chevrolet’s flagship people mover. And we’d appreciate a fresh take on the exterior design, too. The rounded rear end of the current Traverse makes it not so secret the vehicle is truly a minivan at heart. We think we’ll see that design departure here.
We certainly expect to see V6 power remain for the large crossover, but we wouldn’t be surprised if weight savings add a four-cylinder turbocharged engine to the mix for greater fuel efficiency. Maybe a diesel will even make its way into the powertrain mix.
We don’t know anything for sure but do know we’d enjoy hearing what you think in the comment section down below.
