The 2018 Chevy Traverse High Country Takes Mid-Size Crossovers to a New Level
For a mid-size crossover, the staple Chevy Traverse continues to be lauded for packing a nearly unprecedented amount of features and accommodations into its spacious three rows. Splitting the practical difference between stylish mid-size crossover and accommodating full-size SUV, the Traverse receives a timely update this year that, for starters, gives it a more standout sense of style than in previous years by strongly accenting both an expanded interior and a streamlined exterior. Arriving as one of the best-equipped, safest, and most eye-catching crossover options of this season and likely a few others, too, the 2018 Traverse unquestionably looms large in today’s most-successful Chevy lineup ever.
A Young but Storied History
Arriving for the 2009 model year to cement a growing trend of widely well-received crossover innovation at Chevrolet, the Traverse brought with it a high standard of modernity, not only in its wide range of tech and safety features, but also by demonstrating a consistent dedication to progressive crossover styling through a series of considerate upgrades and refinements. Interestingly, the Traverse was one of the first Chevy vehicles to implement a fully modern color touchscreen interface, and was an early adopter of smart safety features like Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning as standard fare. Now as always, the Traverse also prioritizes serious power on a level not widely found in today’s crossovers, with burly V6s outfitting every generation thus far.
The Best Traverse Yet
Having also featured many trim options throughout its lifetime, the Traverse now looks to step things up to the apex of its evolution with the 2018 Chevrolet Traverse High Country. With a 3.6-liter V6 that pushes power output to 310 horses and easily allows the Traverse to leave its competition in the dust, the High Country also features a sophisticated twin-clutch all-wheel drive system that distributes energy to each axle independently, giving it the most impressive powertrain of its lineage. Cutting edge accommodations like auto-folding and heated rear seats show off lush, high-quality materials in the Traverse’s complimented interior, while connectivity and driver support have been streamlined more fully than ever. Bringing safety to a new high point as well, Chevy has gone the distance in implementing not only alerts for potential forward collision scenarios, but a top-of-the-line collision avoidance and automatic braking system capable of acting independently to greatly reduce the chance of certain kinds of accidents.
