Specification levels will also impress, even in the entry LS model. Careful thought has been applied to what is a real need in an SUV as opposed to specification to impress. As examples, the power steering system is further aided by a rake adjustable steering column (also telescopic on the LT). There is air conditioning for comfort, power and heated door mirrors, speed sensitive windscreen wipers, electric windows all-round, vanity mirrors for both driver and passenger, a fully retracting loadspace cover and a tailgate glass that can be opened separately from the tailgate itself by the key fob remote control; they’re all there for convenience. Even the fully integrated in-car entertainment system has an MP3 function so that you can listen to your own choice in music. Front and side window tinting also helps to keep the large glass area under control in summer. The LS is only available with the 2.4 litre petrol engine and front wheel drive.
The new RS package includes unique, blacked-out exterior cues with a black chrome grille, black bowtie, 20-inch wheels and more. The High Country trim features premium content and technology, including a unique interior trim featuring Loft Brown leather appointments with suede accents, 20-inch polished wheels, High Country badging, D-Optic headlamps, standard twin-clutch AWD and power-fold third row seats.
The new 1.5L turbo employs the stop/start technology introduced on the 2014 Malibu, which enhances efficiency in stop-and-go driving, contributing to a GM-estimated 27 mpg in city driving - an 8-percent increase over the current model. On the highway, 1.5L-equipped models also feature active grille shutters that reduce aerodynamic drag to optimize efficiency. The Malibu more-efficient standard engine delivers a GM-estimated 160 horsepower (119 kW) and 184 lb-ft of torque (250 Nm). The torque is comparable to the current model standard 2.5L naturally aspirated engine in a vehicle package that nearly 300 pounds lighter. A higher-output 2.0L turbocharged engine is available, offering a GM-estimated 250 horsepower (186 kW) and 258 lb-ft of torque (350 Nm), for a higher degree of performance - but not at the expense of good efficiency. Malibu 2.0T models are GM-estimated at 22 mpg in the city and 32 on the highway. An all-new, GM-developed eight-speed automatic transmission - the first eight-speed automatic in a GM front-wheel-drive vehicle - contributes to the 2.0T balance of performance and efficiency. The 1.5L turbo engine is matched with a six-speed automatic.
"Nobody in the industry offers a broader, fresher lineup of SUVs and crossovers than Chevrolet," said Batey. "From the all-electric Bolt EV to America longest-running nameplate, Suburban, weve got something for every customer and lifestyle." Chevrolet is adding two new trim levels for the 2018 Traverse - the sporty RS and luxurious High Country - to offer customers more choices for a personalized appearance.
