A Traverse SUP Concept

Chevy Traverse near me

Chevy has traversed off-road over mountains, across desolate highways, down mud-ridden back roads and through treacherous landscapes and is now set to accomplish a new feat—on water—with a unique accessory offered in their newest concept that’s getting every Chevy dealer and aficionado—and even watersport enthusiasts—excited. 

It’s the 2018 Traverse SUP and the new “accessory” is a stand up paddleboard (hence SUP), which is an actual feature that customers can buy atop the crossover. In this case, it’s not just making your ride better, but also your adventures. 

The two-tone Traverse, in a sleek silver and blue combo, made its debut at the SEMA Show with a Riviera Paddlesurf paddleboard on the roof-mounted Stand Up Paddleboard Carrier by Thule®. The matching paddleboard comes at a time when this sport is hitting its peak in popularity. Combine that with a three-row SUV and everyone is in for a good time. 

This concept makes it clear that Chevy isn’t just in the game to get you there, it’s here to uncover new ways and places to explore. 

With a chrome accents, signature LED lighting and available LED D-Optic headlamps, the all-new Traverse has a new look and two new trims to please even more people. The 2018 model will come in a sporty RS and luxurious High Country, in addition to the current L, LS, LT, and Premier trims, each with their own personality and features tailored to customers. Some of the other features found on the concept include:


  • Dark Gray fascias, rockers and wheel opening trim
  • Gloss Black bodyside molding
  • Tinted windows
  • Blue Wave bodyside graphics and yellow stripes
  • Glass black foglamp bezels
  • Riviera stand up paddleboard and paddle


All of this, along with assist steps, a trailer hitch kit, illuminated front door sill plates, 20-inch aluminum wheels complete with black lug nuts, signature black bowtie emblems and Traverse-embroidered headrests, the 2018 Traverse steps out in style. It even offers an integrated cargo liner and all-weather floor liners in black, as well as a black grille insert.
