Chevrolet Traverse
STATUS: Unchanged for 2019 - The second-generation utility model was made over from the ground up for 2018. As a result, it goes its own way in body shape and no longer looks anything like General Motors' Buick Enclave and GMC Acadia wagons. In fact, the Traverse is now much larger overall than the Acadia, even though Chevrolet's designers managed to reduce the tall wagon's weight by nearly 400 pounds. A side view reveals some similarity with the Ford Explorer, especially behind the rear doors. In GM's stable, the eight-passenger Traverse (seven, if the second-row captain chairs are ordered) represents the least-expensive way to get into GM's full-size people-hauling machines. All versions employ a 310-horsepower V-6. However, the sportier looking RS version can also be had with a turbocharged four-cylinder that delivers 255 horses, but out-torques the V-6, 295 to 266 pound-feet (front-wheel-drive only). The RS also looks the part of a sport wagon with blacked-out grille, window trim and roof rails plus darkened 20-inch wheels. Atop the Traverse pecking order, the High Country trim is equipped with leather and suede seats plus a power-folding third row seat. When suitably equipped, the Traverse has a maximum 5,000-pound towing capacity.
