Chevrolet To Add More Fuel Efficient Powertrain For Traverse

General Motors (GM) has revamped one of their powertrains and removing an engine option for the 2019 Chevrolet Traverse. GM announced they have moved on from the turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine found as an option in the Chevrolet Traverse, leaving the 3.6-Liter V6 engine as the only powertrain currently available for the midsize SUV. The four-cylinder engine is still available in the latest Chevrolet Malibu and Cadillac ATS, but in the Chevrolet Traverse, it surprisingly didn’t provide anything to truly separate its self from the more powerful V6. Let us share all the details about the new changes.

More On the Upcoming Powertrain

This move will change once General Motors finalizes their upcoming engine, expected to be a 2.0-Liter inline-four with a twin-scroll turbocharger. The new powertrain will be an upgrade over the previous turbocharged engine, adding better fuel economy ratings. In a current climate where buyers are more wary of a vehicle’s gas mileage than ever before, it’s the right call by GM to make sure they provide an improvement in such a critical area. The upcoming twin-scroll turbocharger is expected to hit 237 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. The best part about this engine is the ability to save gas by turning off the two of the four cylinders. The debut will come first with the 2019 Cadillac XT4 before it will come out for the Traverse. The new powertrain will include a remarkable 26 combined highway and city mpg; something all customers are sure to love.

The Future of the Chevrolet Traverse

The 2019 Chevrolet Traverse is a popular three-row SUV that will gain a new engine at some point in 2019. The expectation is that this engine will deliver better performance and fuel economy than the 2.0-Liter turbo-four that produced 257 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. The remaining powertrain, the 3.6-Liter V6, supplies  310 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque. The report by GM Authority says the reason they opted to remove the second engine, which was only available for front-wheel-drive RT trim, is because both engines were close enough in output and efficiency and the smaller engine wasn’t needed.

First available for the front-wheel-drive RS version of the second-generation 2018 Chevy Traverse, the departed powertrain was not the main focus of the Traverse. The latest Chevrolet Traverse is an upgrade over the prior year. This is thanks to more cargo room added, losing 350 pounds and looking sharper both inside and out. The available 10-speaker Bose sound system raises the infotainment technology value. For any family that wants a vehicle that provides a great driving experience and an attractive full-size SUV, look no further than the 2019 Chevrolet Traverse.

Wondering which three-row SUV is the best on the market? Take a close look at the Chevy Traverse, an attractive crossover that provides three-row seating, has installed the latest technology available and setting monthly records for the last nine months. The 2019 Chevy Traverse is all-new, now in its second-generation, with a user-activated heated steering wheel and new Premier badge for the tailgate. Let’s take a look into the various trims and what makes the Chevy Traverse a must-own for those looking for a large SUV.

Overview of the Chevy Traverse

The Chevrolet Traverse is a full-size sports utility vehicle that is the among the biggest SUVs currently offered by Chevy; only the Chevy Suburban is larger. The current model was introduced for the 2018 model year and represents the second generation of the Traverse. Compared to the first-generation, the all-new Traverse is bigger, yet lighter and sleeker. Chrome accents are stylish all through out the exterior design and the bold design has never looked better. Perhaps, best of all, the Chevy Traverse appears more up-to-date and modern inside. There are also two new trim levels, including High Country and RS with the 2019 model year.

The 2019 Chevy Traverse carries a turbocharged four-cylinder engine and comes with front-wheel-drive. Drivers can choose all-wheel-drive options, all of which come with the 3.6-Liter Pentastar engine. The Pentastar engine is universally used in multiple Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) vehicles and is a reason the Chevy Traverse won the “Parents and Edmunds 10 Best Family Cars of 2018” as the reliable engine pairs with comfortable seating up to eight people.

Into the Traverse

The Chevy Traverse begins with the L trim, which comes with a nine-speed automatic transmission, a standard rear-view camera and LED daytime running lamps. The next trim is the LS trim, which is equipped with a tri-zone automatic climate control with premium cloth seating. The LT Cloth trim includes fog lamps, an 8-way adjustable power driver seat with power lumbar control. The LT Leather trim improves upon the previous trims with leather seating, Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert and an 8-inch color touchscreen.

The RS trim is the second highest trim. The RS trim provides a 10-speaker Bose premium sound system, Chevy’s MyLink with an 8-inch touchscreen and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration. The Premier trim is the highest trim with perforated leather-appointed seating with wireless charging for smartphone devices. The RS trim comes with leather seats that are heated and ventilated up front.

The available rear entertainment system offered by Chevy includes digital headphones, a drop-down screen with an HDMI connection to the drop-down screen. The all-new Chevy Traverse allows owners to have space for just about anything with 98.2 cubic feet of max cargo space. The available Dual SkyScape 2-panel power sunroof is beautiful and allows for passengers to enjoy a wonderful view above with every drive. Enhanced Smart Slide second-row seating makes it easy to move the second-row seating in a hassle-free experience. Guests will love how easy it is to enter the back seat with this nifty feature. Hidden storage compartments make stowing away items easy to create more space for guests.

The highest trim is the High Country, which comes with 20-inch polished wheels. All-wheel-drive system with adaptive cruise control. IntelliBeam automatic high beam assist as well. The high beams will turn on and off when needed as assessed by the Chevy Traverse. The High Country trim begins at $53,000 MSRP (plus destination fee).

Available Traverse Packages

Available packages make for further improvements with the all-new 2019 Chevy Traverse. Changes have happened from the previous model as the Cargo Package no longer includes an LPO-level integrated cargo liner, which will now be included in the Floor Liner Package. The Premium Carpet Mat Package is now only available on High Country (2LZ) models. Formerly, this was available on LS, LT and 1LZ trims. There’s also the available Redline edition that gets owners 20-inch High-Gloss Black wheels with red accents, black bowtie emblems with signature black and red badging and a signature black ice grille with a fog lamp bezel.

With so much to appreciate and admire, it’s no wonder why the latest Chevy Traverse is the buyer’s choice among the three-row SUV segment. The 2019 Chevy Traverse begins at $29,930 MSRP (plus destination fee) and there’s one dealership ready to help make owning one possible.
