The New 2018 Chevrolet Traverse RS Is Seriously Awesome

Last month, Chevy introduced us to the new 2018 Chevrolet Traverse RS, available for purchase now at Bruce Lowrie Chevrolet. The differentiator for the new Traverse RS is its combination of turbocharged engine and aggressive styling.

A 2.0-liter direct-injected Ecotec turbo engine motivates the new Traverse RS, creating 257 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. The engine is paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission, which allows for smooth shifting and high efficiency: up to 20 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway.*

As for the styling, the new 2018 Traverse RS is completely blacked out: It sports black window trim, black bowtie emblems, black roof rails, and a black grille. The Traverse RS SUV sits on 20-inch aluminum wheels with Dark Android finish.

Other standard content on the 2018 Chevrolet Traverse RS includes remote start, a power liftgate, tri-zone automatic climate control, Jet Black leather-appointed seating, a multicolor driver information center display, HID headlamps and LED daytime running lamps, and a BoseĀ® premium 10-speaker audio system. Safety features include Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Rear Park Assist, Surround Vision, Rear Seat Reminder, Teen Driver, and the Rear Camera Mirror.
