https://geekdad.com - I was invited by General Motors to come to Michigan and experience a family vacation in a new 2018 Chevrolet Traverse. While I clearly have no love of long car rides, despite being something of a car guy who actually enjoys the physical act of driving, I still signed up for the 4 hour drive to Traverse City from Detroit. As a consummate professional, it is my duty to as thoroughly as possible educate my readers on the ever-changing technology of the automotive world and keep them abreast of the myriad advancements in safety, comfort, and in-vehicle entertainment. Also, free vacation.
https://www.thestreet.com - Traverses already have arrived at many Chevrolet showrooms, according to marketing director Steve Majoros; and the new model is selling briskly, "just as soon as they arrive." For GM, strong early Traverse sales are a bright spot in a U.S. car market that has been losing steam after six years of increasing sales. Traverse joins the redesigned Equinox in the Chevrolet lineup, a compact crossover introduced earlier this year that is up 9.6% in sales in a market segment up 2%. The overall U.S. vehicle market is down 3% through July.
https://artofgears.com - What if the third row seat on the Chevrolet Tahoe wasn’t there? That’s not the kind of question which will make you lose sleep at night. But for some SUV buyers, that’s exactly what they always wanted. Or that’s what Chevy thinks. Get rid of that seat and open up the rear for some more real estate for your luggage. That’s the Tahoe Custom all about. Or is there more to it? After all, it’s a Tahoe for the cost-conscious customer who doesn’t want a fully-loaded Premier version.
http://newatlas.com - Chevrolet's new turbodiesel engine is a 1.6-liter four-cylinder that outputs 240 lb-ft of torque inside a low-RPM range of 1,500 to 3,250. A variable-geometry (variable vane) turbocharger helps that happen. This is a new engine design, starting from scratch, and it will be used globally by GM in various yet-to-be-announced vehicles. Development for the engine was undertaken at GM's Torino, Italy facility.
The Chevy Equinox has been redesigned for 2018, and its upgrades make this compact crossover an even more appealing choice within what has become a very competitive class. The redesign has brought a 10 percent reduction in weight, and the current model is 400 pounds lighter than the outgoing model.
http://gmauthority.com - Last week, we reported that General Motors will add the all-new 2018 Chevrolet Traverse to its limited lineup in Russia. Having dug a bit deeper, we now know how the vehicle will make its way to the country.
http://autoweek.com - Low-slung station wagons are cool. Tall SUVs are sometimes cool. Tall station wagons, disguised as crossovers, like the previous three-row Chevrolet Traverse? Not cool. This new one though, the first of the second generation, is cool-er. I don’t know if a three-row anything can actually be capital C cool, but it’s Close.
http://www.thedrive.com - Even saddled with a slushbox and soft roof, the Grand Sport is hard to top (pun intended) for sheer entertainment value.
http://autoweek.com - Even though the SS weighs in at 4,000 pounds, it doesn’t feel ungodly heavy or overdone. The steering ratio is quick with a good amount of feel for expressway cloverleafs, and the brakes and throttle are quick, too. The brakes have a few inches of travel with a light bite before they dig in and haul this thing down. I had to quickly bleed off 30 mph on the expressway when an errant cube truck entered my lane; the SS's binders took care of things in a hurry.
Buyers who have switched from driving a minivan to an SUV already know this: There aren’t many 3-row SUVs that can accommodate full-grown adult passengers in the rearmost seating area. First there’s the long, arduous hike back there to test one’s gymnastic mettle. Then, once seated, there’s the question of where to put one’s knees other than resting your chin on them. The redesigned 2018 Chevrolet Traverse, however, is one of the few that allows aft denizens to retain some semblance of dignity during this perilous passage.
