The fans of the 2019 Chevrolet Traverse have seen some significant updates and redesign for the year 2018. Although this has happened quite recently, Chevrolet has already been preparing its second model from the second generation of its Traverse crossover that is about to hit the market as a 2019 model.
The 2019 Chevrolet Traverse is going to hit the roads as a full-size four-door crossover. This crossover will be a great choice for those adventure enthusiasts, but also for your everyday tasks and long family journeys. Since we have witnessed some serious improvements for the 2018 model, you should expect only some minor changes and refreshments for the upcoming year. The new Traverse will ride on the GM C1 long-wheelbase platform that this model shares with the Buick Enclave and Cadillac XT6. The Traverse will be larger than its predecessor, but it will keep its significantly reduced weight. This will definitely provide better fuel-economy and performance. When it comes to exterior of the new Traverse, this model will at the same time appear more elegant and aggressive. You will notice its chrome grille with black accents and its HID headlamps with the LED daytime running lights. It will stand on standard 18-inch aluminum wheels. The Traverse will be available in several trim levels and some new exterior color choices.
The interior of the 2019 Chevrolet Traverse will provide three rows of seats that will be able to accommodate up to 8 passengers. The cabin mostly remains the same, but there will certainly be some minor changes and improvements. There will be plenty of legroom even for the second and the third-row passengers. You will also get more cargo space. The front seats will offer options such as heating and ventilation and all the seats will be covered in stitched leather in higher trim levels. You can also expect some new interior color combinations and quieter cabin with reduced exterior noise and vibrations. The driver should also hope for a standard 7.0-inch touch-screen display with the My Link infotainment system and features such as navigation system, satellite radio, climate control, Bluetooth, USB, Wi-Fi, Apple Car Play and Android Auto. The new Traverse will include safety systems and driver assist features such as adaptive cruise control, a rearview camera, forward collision warning, lane keep assist, rear park assist, lane departure warning and others.
The 2019 Chevrolet Traverse will keep using its standard 3.6-liter V6 engine that delivers 310 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque. The higher trim levels and the RS model should come with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that hits 255 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. This model should be mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission.
