It’s almost Christmas in the United States. Whether you celebrate or not, you probably have some time off in the coming days. It’s the last little bit of freedom before auto show season starts. But to whet your appetite, automakers like teasing their Detroit reveals. Chevrolet is doing just that with the tease for the 2017 Traverse!
Crossovers are selling like hotcakes. They’re going gangbusters. What other hyperbole is there to say about the sales of crossovers that communicate that they’re doing well? It makes sense to keep those products fresh and updated, and Chevrolet is doing just that.
The real question is, will it have a diesel engine like the new Equinox? We’ll find out in a few weeks!
Here’s the rest of the teaser details from the Chevrolet press release:
DETROIT — Chevrolet will complete the transformation of its crossover and SUV lineup with the introduction of the next-generation Traverse on Jan. 9 at the North American International Auto Show.
The all-new Traverse features a bold and refined design with seating for up to eight passengers. It’s expected to offer the segment’s best third-row legroom and maximum cargo space.
Premium interior and exterior design cues and new technologies abound, including available exclusive D-Optic headlamps that provide a natural daylight effect with a seamless light quality.
The 2018 Traverse will be Chevrolet’s latest crossover/SUV offering, joining the 2017 Bolt EV and Trax, the 2018 Equinox revealed in September and the full-size Tahoe and Suburban.
“Nobody in the industry offers a broader, fresher lineup of SUVs and crossovers than Chevrolet,” said Alan Batey, president of GM North America and brand chief of Global Chevrolet. “From the all-electric Bolt EV to America’s longest-running nameplate, Suburban, we’ve got something for every customer and lifestyle.”
