Last year, the Chevrolet Traverse underwent a complete redesign that consisted of a new appearance, a 400-pound weight reduction, and a significant increase in legroom for second- and third-row passengers. With these updates still fresh, we don’t expect any huge changes when the 2019 Traverse shows up.
2019 Chevrolet Traverse Design
With its appearances still fresh from its 2018 redesign, we anticipate no dramatic changes to the 2019 Traverse’s appearance. There could, however, be a few tweaks to its available colors or other choices, however we expect its style to be equivalent from the present model. The same will prove out within, as we anticipate the style of the 2019 Traverse’s cabin to stay the very same, however we might see a couple of updates to colors and features.
2019 Chevrolet Traverse Engine
We anticipate no changes to the 2019 Travere’s offered powertrains, offered they simply went through changes for 2018. This suggests we expect to see the same 3.6-liter V6 engine with 310 horse power and 266 pound-feet of torque as the standard engine and a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 255 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque in the RS model. We also anticipate the basic nine-speed automated transmission to stay.
IIHS testing is not offered for the new-generation Traverse, but it needs to be soon. The last-generation model did OKAY in crash tests, receiving “Good” ratings on the four tests it finished. One exemption is the small-overlap test, which it didn’t complete. With its brand-new building and advanced safety features, we could see the 2019 Traverse being a Top Safety Pick or higher.
2019 Chevrolet Traverse Pricing & Release Date
Though there’s no official release date in location for the 2019 Traverse, in 2015’s release schedule leads us to believe it’ll show up in the second quarter of 2018. Without any huge changes anticipated, we expect nothing however small inflationary changes to the 2019 Traverse’s main rates relative to last year’s model, which ranges from $33,095 to $48,395 (location costs consisted of). Key rivals consist of the Honda Pilot, Mazda CX-9, and Toyota Highlander.
