In 2015, the Chevrolet Traverse went through a complete redesign that consisted of a new appearance, a 400-pound weight decrease, and a noteworthy boost in legroom for second- and third-row travelers. With these updates still fresh, we don’t expect any big changes when the 2019 Traverse arrives.
2019 Chevrolet Traverse Design
With its looks still fresh from its 2018 redesign, we expect no remarkable changes to the 2019 Traverse’s look. There could, nevertheless, be a few tweaks to its readily available colors or other options, however we expect its style to be indistinguishable from the existing model. The exact same will prove out within, as we expect the style of the 2019 Traverse’s cabin to stay the exact same, but we could see a few updates to colors and features.
2019 Chevrolet Traverse Engine
We expect no changes to the 2019 Travere’s readily available powertrains, given they simply underwent changes for 2018. This implies we anticipate to see the exact same 3.6-liter V6 engine with 310 horse power and 266 pound-feet of torque as the basic engine and a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 255 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque in the RS model. We also expect the basic nine-speed automatic transmission to remain.
IIHS screening is not offered for the new-generation Traverse, however it must be quickly. The last-generation model did OK in crash tests, receiving “Good” scores on the four tests it completed. One exclusion is the small-overlap test, which it didn’t total. With its brand-new building and more advanced safety features, we might 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 place for the 2019 Traverse, in 2015’s release schedule leads us to think it’ll arrive in the second quarter of 2018. With no big changes anticipated, we expect absolutely nothing however little inflationary changes to the 2019 Traverse’s main pricing relative to last year’s model, which varies from $33,095 to $48,395 (location costs included). Secret competitors include the Honda Pilot, Mazda CX-9, and Toyota Highlander.
