The 2017 North American International Auto Show brought about one big, important debut for Chevrolet. Even though, as enthusiasts, we like to see performance machines front and center, the 2018 Chevrolet Traverse is more important than any new sports car.
Kathleen Murawski stopped by Roadshow to discuss why the 2018 Traverse is so important to Chevrolet and even talked a bit about where the Traverse may go in the future.
Specifically, she stated it truly depends on the customer base for the vehicle. For example, while there is not a diesel engine available for the Traverse at present, that could change in the future should demand call for it. Murawski certainly did not rule out the option, especially as the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox gears up to launch a diesel engine later this year.
Even electrification could be explored in the future, barring how gasoline prices fluctuate over the next few years. From Murawski comments, engineers seem to be ready and willing to apply hybrid systems to crossovers should it become necessary for fuel economy and vehicles’ customer bases.
