2018 Traverse



The all-new 2018 Chevrolet Traverse is for the go-getters, adventure seekers and the family that’s always in motion. No matter where you’re headed, this midsize SUV has the technology, safety and capability to take you there.


Traverse takes safety seriously, especially when it comes to crash prevention. This smart SUV uses available Advanced Safety Technologies like Adaptive Cruise Control, Front Pedestrian Braking, Surround Vision and more to make sure you’re always protected.


Low Speed Forward Automatic Braking

When Traverse is traveling below 80 km/h and the system senses that a front-end collision with another vehicle is imminent, this available feature automatically applies the brakes to potentially help reduce the severity of impact. It may even help avoid an accident altogether at very low speeds

Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning

If you unintentionally drift from your lane without using your turn signal, available Lane Keep Assist provides alerts and gentle turns of the steering wheel to help you get your vehicle back in place. 

Forward Collision Alert

This available advanced feature integrates smart camera technology to alert you when slowing vehicles are detected in your path. 

Front Pedestrian Braking

If a collision with a pedestrian directly ahead is imminent and you haven’t already applied the brakes, this available system both alerts you and can automatically apply the brakes. This can help reduce the collision’s severity, or possibly avoid it altogether.

Forward Automatic Braking

If the system detects that a front-end collision is imminent and you haven’t already applied the brakes, this available system automatically slows the vehicle to help reduce the collision’s severity.


Rear Vision Camera

As you shift into reverse, the standard rear vision camera automatically displays a live image of the area behind your Traverse on the Chevrolet MyLink™* touchscreen.

*MyLink™ functionality varies by model. Full functionality requires compatible Bluetooth and smartphone, and USB connectivity for some devices.

Rear Cross Traffic Alert

This available technology uses radar sensors to monitor approaching traffic passing behind the Traverse and alerts you through the standard Rear Vision Camera screen.

Side Blind Zone Alert

As part of Lane Change Alert, this available feature uses short-range radar sensors to warn you when other vehicles are in your blind zone areas.

Lane Change Alert

This available advanced technology supports the Side Blind Zone Alert, providing side mirror alerts to help you avoid a collision with a rapidly approaching vehicle when you’re changing lanes.

Rear Park Assist

Available Rear Park Assist uses ultrasonic sensors to detect stationary objects and warn you if an object is too close, while the guide lines on the Rear Vision Camera screen help when reversing.


When you’re parking or traveling at low speeds, this available technology uses strategically placed cameras to create a virtual bird’s-eye view of the vehicle. 

Rear Camera Mirror

This available technology allows the rearview mirror to double as a video screen, providing the driver with a wide-angle unobstructed view of the area behind the vehicle.

Adaptive Cruise Control

It’s cruise control, only better. This available feature automatically maintains a preset distance from the vehicle in front of you — even during slowing traffic.

Intellibeam® Headlamps

This available technology automatically switches the high beams on and off as conditions dictate.

​Safety features are no substitute for the driver’s responsibility to operate the vehicle in a safe manner. The driver should remain attentive to traffic, surroundings and road conditions at all times. Read the vehicle Owner’s Manual for important feature limitations and information.


Traverse helps keep you and your family connected and entertained every time you drive. With the Chevrolet MyLinkTM* display and Apple CarPlay™** you’re always in command.

Traverse offers support for Apple CarPlay™**, a safer, smarter way to use your iPhone to listen to Apple Music®, call friends and more.

*MyLink™ functionality varies by model. Full functionality requires compatible Bluetooth and smartphone, and USB connectivity for some devices.

Rear Seat Reminder

Rear Seat Reminder* can help jog your memory when you need it. The feature activates when a second-row door is opened then closed just before you drive. Once you’ve completed your trip, it uses chimes and a message in the Driver Information Center to remind you (under certain conditions) to check the back seat for your things.

* Does not detect people or items. Always check rear seat before exiting.


Here, there and everywhere in between — the standard 3.6L V6 engine allows for impressive power and available towing capability, while the 9-speed automatic transmission offers the smooth shifting you want, and the fuel economy you need.

  • Available towing capability up to 2,268kg
  • Intelligent stop/start technology – a smarter, more seamless way to help save gas in stop-and-go city driving
  • Traverse High Country offers advanced twin-clutch all-wheel drive for improved driver control


This convenient feature allows you to adjust your vehicle’s performance on challenging road surfaces with a simple turn of a dial.


Your setting for everyday driving. When equipped with available AWD, switching to FWD will help improve fuel efficiency.


4x4 mode (AWD) and Snow mode (FWD) can help offer better control when road conditions are wet or slippery.


Available on AWD models, Off-Road mode sends more torque to the rear wheels for improved driving on loose surfaces like sand, grass, gravel or dirt.


When equipped with the available Trailering Package, Tow/Haul mode keeps your Traverse in a lower gear, offering more torque for when you need to pull a trailer.


Outside, Traverse is completely redesigned for a bold new look that commands all the right attention. Inside, thoughtful details are everywhere – like available leather appointments and premium stitching. When you need some peace and quiet, the noise-cancelling cabin helps to keep road sounds out and conversation in.

  • Panoramic power sunroof on LT Leather, Premier and High Country
  • Comfortable seating for up to 8 people

The liftgate also features a programmable memory height to accommodate areas with low ceilings.


The enhanced Smart Slide® second-row seat on the passenger side can be moved and angled forward, allowing passengers easy access to the third-row seats.

Hidden Storage
