We’ve all seen the scenes in movies that show us an unlikely vehicle performing a perfect slide into a parking spot to drop kids off at school to get the family where they need to go. If you’ve thought this would be something fun to try on your own, but you haven’t found the family vehicle that can handle the challenge, Chevrolet may have the answer for you. This team has made a new Traverse RS and it’s ready to take the veil off this model that will join the 2019 lineup as its debuted at the Chicago Auto Show.
This new version of the Traverse offers you a look that screams sportiness in a midsize crossover SUV, which seems like a serious oxymoron in terms. Similar to the term “military intelligence” the new Traverse is something that many may say shouldn’t have been built, but right now, this SUV is going to be added to the lineup and if you’re looking for that fun look and feel from behind the wheel of your family hauler, this is the one you’ll want to drive. This new RS model is certainly going to garner some looks and attention from those you show this SUV off to.
The Changes for More Performance and Style
From the outside of this impressive SUV, you’re going to see a ton of black features that have been added. These include the grill, window trim, roof rails, and bowtie emblems all to go along with the 20-inch Dark Android-painted wheels. Standard items for this new SUV includes HID headlights, the Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system with an eight-inch touchscreen, heated front seats, tri-zone climate controls, a Bose audio system, a power liftgate, keyless entry, push-button starting, rearview and surround view cameras, rear parking assist, rear cross traffic alerts, and much more.
Under the hood, this new version of the Traverse ditches the traditional 3.6-liter V6 engine in favor of the 2.0-liter Ecotec turbocharged four-cylinder engine. This engine brings you 257 horsepower and 295 lb.-ft. of torque while making use of the nine-speed automatic transmission which allows this SUV to be able to reach 20 city/26 hwy mpg. This is an interesting choice for a vehicle that wears the RS badge because the smaller engine has less horsepower, but it does bring more torque, which allows you to have the acceleration you’re looking for.
If you’re looking for an impressive new model that can give you an excellent ride for the drive you want in order to slide into that parking spot with squealing tires, the new Chevrolet Traverse RS can be that vehicle. This is a family SUV that also offers you the fun and excitement you crave for the drive you’ll make on a daily basis. Let this become the vehicle that makes it easier for you to experience the drive you want and take a look at what the new Traverse RS offers as the veil is lifted at the Chicago Auto Show.
