When it comes to finding a great family car for your family, it’s likely you want something that’s both safe and connected—but what if you want it to express your own personality, too? Well, that’s where the 2018 Chevrolet Traverse RS comes in.
The Traverse RS is a brand-new trim that has been added to the fully redesigned 2018 Traverse. It combines this family hauler’s best-in-class maximum cargo room of 98.2 cubic feet and innovative technologies with turbocharged performance and blacked-out styling cues.
As Steve Majoris, Chevrolet’s marketing director for Cars and Crossovers, pointed out, “By offering customers more choice with higher-end entries like the RS, which has a more street inspired look […] Chevrolet now offers a comfortable and connected Traverse for every lifestyle.”
The RS offers unique styling details, including black window trim, roof rails, and bowtie emblems, along with a black grille and 20-inch aluminum wheels featuring a Dark Android finish.
It’s also the first Traverse to offer turbocharged performance, thanks to the 2.0-liter Ecotec turbo engine, which puts out an impressive 257 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. This powertrain is mated to a nine-speed automatic, helping it get an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 20 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway.*
