What is the safest trim level?
A rearview camera system and airbags available to all rows are just a few of the standard safety features available in 2018. Many of the trims also come standard with surround vision and a rearview camera mirror. The trim with the most standard equipment is the High Country with its additional intelligent brake assist, collision avoidance braking, and front automatic braking. If you are looking to add further safety and security features the Convenience and Driver Confidence package offers a side blind zone alert, rear cross-traffic alert, rear park assist, and a color driver information center. A Driver Confidence II package would also include low speed forward automatic braking, lane keep assist with lane departure warning, forward collision alert, front pedestrian detection, and IntelliBeam headlamps.
What engine options do I have?
The standard engine for all the models but the RS is the 310 horsepower 3.6-liter V6. This engine comes with a nine-speed automatic transmission and the option to choose front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. This engine also has 266 pounds-feet of torque power and an EPA fuel economy rating of 18/27 miles per gallon with the front-wheel drive and 17/25 miles per gallon with the all-wheel drive. The High Country changes things up for better traction by switching from the standard single-clutch system to a dual-clutch system with all-wheel drive. As mentioned earlier, the RS uses a different engine with 255 horsepower and 295 pounds-feet of torque, this 2-liter turbocharged inline-4 had received an EPA fuel economy rating of 20/26 miles per gallon.
What comes standard with each trim?
With the two new trims added in, the Traverse totals seven trims to choose from. The L trim is the base with engine stop-start, xenon headlights, 18-inch wheels, a rearview camera, OnStar communications, cloth upholstery, and even a Teen Driver system. The LS continues the feature list with second-row tablet mounts and the ability to add a cargo management package. Next up is the LT Cloth trim with roof rails, second-row captain’s chairs, mirror-integrated turn signals, and a power-adjustable driver seat. The Convenience and Driver Confidence package, as well as the Trailering package, are available to the LT Cloth. The LT Leather trim adds the Convenience and Driver Confidence package with all its safety features and also includes a 120-volt power outlet, a navigation system, a power-adjustable passenger seat, a top-down parking camera, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. The RS is next with a few more styling and accent cues. The Premier adds heated rear seats, hands-free operating liftgate, ventilated front seats, a power-adjustable steering column, and auto-dimming side mirrors. The top of the lineup is the all-new High Country with everything from the previous trim plus an auto-locking rear differential, automatic high beams, a power-folding third-row seat, a panoramic sunroof, an upgraded interior leather upholstery, and adaptive cruise control to top it all off.
