One by one, Chevy is unveiling Traverse crossovers. The latest SUV we can see is the RS version. These are still fresh models of the second generation. The 2019 Chevrolet Traverse will be the first one to get updates after the SUV came out from its 8-year first-gen stint. Under the bonnet, the Traverse will use the same engine. A minor facelift will refresh the model. Also, GM will listen carefully to owners and fix everything that they find wrong on new-gen Traverse. All in all, next season could make this mid-size crossover one of the most wanted in the US.
2019 Chevrolet Traverse engine
The 2019 Chevrolet Traverse is using a C1XX platform. On the same concept, we will see the new Buick Enclave and GMC Acadia. For Chevy Traverse, it will bring a 3.6-liter V-6 petrol drivetrain. The drivetrain sends power through a 9-speed auto transmission either to 2WD or 4WD configuration. In future, Traverse could get reinforcement with a 2.0-liter petrol engine. Until then, the crossover will burst 310 hp. Also, the powertrain returns 18/29 mpg city/highway. A 2.0-liter is good for 255 hp and 23 mpg combined.
2019 Chevrolet Traverse trim levels
The mid-size crossover is coming with a lot of features already in its base model. There, buyers will find most of the standard equipment for Blue Oval SUVs. For example, these are StabiliTrak and Traction Control. The LS trim adds few more features, while the significant upgrade comes with LT model. This one has two versions, Cloth and Leather. A high-end class will introduce two models. The premier level is a luxury model with plenty of extra equipment. Also, there are many stylish details. Nevertheless, there is one model above it. High Country holds all the features from 2019 Chevrolet Traverse Premier and adds IntelliBeam assist tow package, and many more.
2019 Chevrolet Traverse price
The base L model of the 2019 Chevrolet Traverse will cost $31,000. One by one trim level will add value to Chevy SUV. Mid-range trims start with LT leather, which is about to cost around $44,000. Premier is not too much more since it costs still under $50,000. High Country tops the lineup and the price tag of $55,000 will say enough about it. This will position it on par with entry-level trims of Chevy Tahoe.
