Compromise king: 2018 Chevrolet Traverse RS priced from $42,995

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - We're not sure that the 2018 Chevrolet Traverse RS knows what it wants to be. At $42,995 including a mandatory $945 destination charge, according to our friends at Cars Direct, the Traverse RS is an odd duck in the automaker's three-row crossover lineup.

First Drive: 2018 Buick Enclave

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - Buick has redesigned the Enclave with a new look for 2018, while on the same vehicle ramping up the luxury with the introduction of Avenir, Buick’s new luxury sub-brand.  The Enclave shares platforms with the Chevrolet Traverse, but is aimed at codling its occupants with a higher degree of comfort, while offering more distinguished, flowing exterior lines.

2018 Chevrolet Traverse RS Is a More Expensive, De-powered, Less Efficient Front-drive Traverse

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - Priced at $42,995 including destination fees, the late-arriving 2018 Chevrolet Traverse RS is an oddly positioned member of the second-generation Traverse lineup. The RS is the only four-cylinder member of the fleet — it’s down 53 horsepower on the 3.6-liter V6 in other Traverses — and yet a basic Traverse RS costs $12,120 more than the least costly Traverse. The RS consumes more fuel on the highway, albeit slightly less in the city. It’s also available exclusively as a front-wheel-drive model. Ah, but GM says it’s “sporty.”

First Drive: 2018 Chevrolet Traverse

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - The Traverse is all-new for 2018, starting with a stiff new platform that gives it a comfortable and – as I discovered – very quiet ride. The vehicle’s overall length remains virtually the same from the last-generation model, but the wheelbase is longer, which provides more interior space. The third-row cushions are still uncomfortably hard and flat, but there’s now enough legroom there for most adults, and of course children will love being back there. There’s also an impressive amount of cargo space even when the back chairs are up, which is often a weak point for many three-row vehicles.

Posted By GMbeat on Articles - Based on size alone, the Traverse has always excelled at hauling both people and cargo. With its all-new-for-2018 redesign, Chevrolet addressed what might have been the Traverse’s biggest negative: its minivan-esque appearance.
