Chevy Prices the 2018 Traverse… by Michael Accardi May 24, 2017 Share Comments Chevrolet’s other full-size crossover has just been priced ahead of its official market launch later in the year. Sharing GM’s C1XX platform with the new Buick Enclave, the 2018 Traverse’s $30,875 base MSRP has grown by $1,280 compared to the current truck–however, option all the goodies and the large crossover’s price will stretch past $50,000. Base models get a 3.6-liter V-6 hitched to a nine-speed automatic transmission with automatic stop/start capability, cloth seats, standard dual-zone climate control, a backup camera, and a 7-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and 4G LTE hotspot capability. The next step up is the $32,995 Traverse LS, which gives way to the two-tier LT trim. Starting at $35,495 1LT models get cloth seats plus more gear than the base L model; moving to the $42,095 3LT pack adds heated leather seats, 20-inch wheels, Bose audio, power liftgate, and a 360-degree camera. All-wheel-drive is a standalone option that will run you an extra 2 grand on LS and 3LT trucks, but inexplicably an extra $3800 when paired with the 1LT model. Moving even further up the ladder we arrive at the $45,395 Traverse Premier, which brings LED headlamps, heated and cooled front seats, heated rear seats, and a heated steering wheel. AWD can be had for an extra $2,900. At the top of the pile sits the $52,995 Traverse High Country which brings a chrome dipped face, all the active-safety features you could want, and a standard twin-clutch AWD system like the GMC Acadia, Buick Envision, and Cadillac XT5 use. Eventually, Chevrolet promises the Traverse RS equipped exclusively with a 2.0T lifted from the Camaro for those seeking a hotter option, but pricing remains unannounced.
