U.S. News & World Report has taken some of the guesswork out of shopping for a new SUV for your family by selecting the 17 Best SUVs of the year. This year’s list includes the 2019 Chevrolet Traverse. U.S. News had previously named the Traverse the 2019 Best 3-Row SUV for Families.
The Traverse has a lot to offer families, starting with its three standard rows of seats for up to eight passengers. Even with eight seats, there is enough room for everyone to stretch out. The third row is even spacious enough for adults.
Another great thing about the Traverse is its cargo space. Behind the third row, it offers 23 cubic feet of space, which is more than most other SUVs in its class. You can fold down the second and third rows when you need more cargo space and use up to 98.2 cubic feet.
You can also stay connected and in control with the Traverse thanks to its abundant technology features. It comes standard with a 7-inch touch screen with the latest Chevrolet Infotainment system. It also comes with OnStar® and a 4G LTE Wi-Fi® hotspot, with an applicable data plan. Parents can also feel confident letting their teens drive the Traverse thanks to its standard Teen Driver safety system.

Earlier this year, Chevrolet announced the expanded Traverse lineup, which includes the new 2018 Chevrolet Traverse RS. Already in 2018, the Traverse has become a standout vehicle in its class, offering best-in-class max cargo volume (up to 98.2 cubic feet), new advanced safety features, and more technologies than the outgoing model. The new Traverse RS builds on the Traverse’s momentum going into this year.
The big distinction for the 2018 Chevrolet Traverse RS is its bold, black styling. The new Traverse RS wears a black grille, black roof rails, black bowtie emblems, and black window trim and sits on 20-inch aluminum wheels with a Dark Android finish, to match the overall darkening effect.
A turbocharged engine gives the Traverse RS a spirited performance. Motivated by the Ecotec 2.0-liter turbo engine, the Traverse RS delivers 257 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. The engine is mated to an efficient nine-speed automatic transmission that helps the RS achieve its fuel economy rating of 20 miles per gallon in the city and 26 on the highway.*
Other standard features for the Traverse RS include an array of safety amenities to boost your confidence on the road. Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Teen Driver, a power liftgate, and tri-zone automatic climate control come on each trim level.
