A sporty vibe has taken over the family-friendly 2018 Chevrolet Traverse. This mid-size SUV has received a dose of fun-to-drive appeal with the all-new Chevrolet Traverse RS, which is now available at Carl Hogan.
While the RS looks like other Traverse models when it comes to its silhouette, it has some specific design cues that add an athletic appeal to the SUV. This includes a black grille, black window trim, black roof rails, black emblems, and 20-inch aluminum wheels with a Dark Android finish.
Along with this difference in styling, the RS model is also the first ever Traverse to offer turbocharged performance. Its direct-injected 2.0-liter Ecotec turbo engine puts out an impressive 257 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque, delivering a spirited drive. This engine is combined with a nine-speed automatic transmission, getting the Traverse RS an EPA-estimated fuel economy rating of 20 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway.*
The Traverse was recently redesigned for the 2018 model year, which has given it best-in-class cargo room and more technologies than ever before. Standard on the RS include features such as Jet Black leather upholstery, a power liftgate, a Bose 10-speaker audio system, and active driver assistance technologies of Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Rear Park Assist, and Surround Vision.
