When you step inside the spacious interior of the 2018 Chevrolet Traverse, it feels much bigger than a midsize SUV. The three-row seating offers space for eight passengers as standard with the second-row bench seat, or you can get seating for seven with the optional second-row captain's chairs. No matter where you sit in the 2018 Chevy Traverse, you'll have space to stretch out, with 41 inches of legroom in the front, 38.4 inches in the second row, and 33.5 inches in the third row. With a grand total of 157.3 cu-ft of passenger volume overall, your friends and family will love every second of travel with you.
The vast amount of space for passengers doesn't mean the 2018 Chevrolet Traverse skimps on luggage volume—quite the opposite, in fact. There's an already sizeable 23 cu-ft of cargo volume behind the rear seats in the standard configuration, which is more than enough for groceries and daily supplies. And when you fold the third-row seats flat, storage goes up to 57.8 cu-ft. Do the same with the 60/40 split-folding second-row bench seats, and capacity swells to an enormous 98.2 cu-ft. Whether it's holiday flight luggage or new furniture for the house, the 2018 Chevy Traverse has the space to meet your cargo needs.
Standard across most of the 2018 Chevrolet Traverse range is a strong 3.6L V6 engine producing 310 hp and 266 lb-ft of torque. That's more than enough power for day-to-day driving and highway cruising, especially when paired with the available all-wheel drive. With the standard front-wheel drive, the 3.6L engine gets an EPA-estimated 27 mpg on the highway.
Not only does the 2018 Chevrolet Traverse have a jam-packed feature list across the range of six trims, but a large amount of those features are available even on standard models. The base LS trim is very well equipped, including features like heated and power mirrors, keyless entry, cruise control, a rearview camera, and available OnStar® communications with an onboard Wi-Fi hotspot.
The 2018 Chevrolet Traverse is generously equipped, even on the base trim. So what happens when you move to the higher end of the trim levels? You get the premium High Country trim, which focuses on luxury and comfort. It includes features from lower trims like hands-free liftgate operation, and heated rear seats from the Premier trim, and adds its own premium features like a panoramic sunroof, adaptive cruise control, unique leather upholstery, and power-folding third-row seats.
