Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2018 Chevrolet Traverse gets a much needed makeover that helps make the big crossover look more premium this time around.

Pros
Bolder style
More upscale exterior
New High Country trim
Efficient 9-speed automatic

Cons
Cargo room is comparable to last gen
How will turbo-4 power work?
Where does Tahoe fit?
Interior a little bland

We think the LT Cloth with the Convenience and Driver Confidence package (which is standard on the all-wheel-drive version) will give you everything you need. Between the LT's basic upgrades and the option package's suite of useful safety features, the LT Cloth strikes a good balance between cost and livability.

Pros
Generous room for passengers in all three rows
Feature-rich standard infotainment system

Cons
Some safety features only available on top trims
