Keep on Truckin’ With Beefier Look

The new 2018 Chevrolet Traverse gets a bit of a stouter look, an RS sub-brand and premium High Country trim level to appeal across a wide range of buyers when it comes to Freeway Chevrolet this summer. A spacious and comfortable interior combines with modern technology to improve your driving experience and provide you and your family a vehicle that can go anywhere and do everything. “The all-new Traverse offers the ultimate in style and convenience for the segment, with the versatility customers need and a thoughtful, spacious design they’ll love,” according to GM North America president Alan Batey. “It’s the midsize SUV designed to keep you safe, comfortable and connected.”

RS, High Country Offer Customers Choice

The RS trim level of the new Chevrolet Traverse is a sporty version with exterior aspects blacked out, including the grill, bow tie and 20-inch wheels. The High Country goes to the opposite extreme, with a sophisticated look including polished wheels, D-optic headlamps, leather appointments and power-fold rear seats. “The all-new Traverse blends Chevrolet’s characteristic SUV cues with capability and refinement,” said Global Chevrolet Design chief John Cafaro. “Inside and out, it offers style with a purpose.

Longer Wheelbase Offers More Interior Room

With a longer overall design, the new Chevrolet Traverse delivers comfortable seating for up to eight adults. With best-in-class legroom and passenger volume, the Traverse also delivers the largest cargo area in its category at 98.5 cubic feet. There are many well-designed storage options and bins throughout the interior to enhance passenger convenience. Another point of convenience is the split second-row seat that slides to provide incredibly easy access to the third row.

New Engine Provides More Horsepower

When the 2018 Traverse comes to Freeway Chevrolet this summer, it will be powered by a brand-new 3.6L V6 that’s paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission. The new engine delivers 10 percent more horsepower than the current model, while still producing a very efficient 25 mpg on the highway according to early GM estimates. The 2018 Chevrolet Traverse will have a towing capacity of about 5,000 pounds, making it the perfect vehicle for light to medium recreational towing.

Modern Technology Abounds in Traverse

You’ll have your choice of a 7 or 8 inch diagonal infotainment screen in your new Traverse. The system supports both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, while providing 4G LTE Wi-Fi capability to turn your Traverse into a rolling hot spot. USB charging ports are plentiful throughout the cockpit, ensuring you and your passengers can keep their electronics up and running whether you’re just running the office car pool or traveling across country.

Power Breeds Confidence When Towing

Now that the totally redesigned Duramax 6.6L V-8 turbo-diesel is an option with the 2017 Chevrolet Silverado HD truck, drivers can be assured they have the power they need to tow virtually any trailer. “Silverado HD gives you confidence,” according to Chevy Chief Engineer Jeff Luke, “and confidence gives you the best towing experience.” With a stronger block and new control system, the new Duramax engine delivers 445 horsepower and an amazing 910 pound-feet of torque. Torque is the low-end power that ensures you can get your load moving whether you’re on a flat surface or at the bottom of a steep incline. Test drive the new Silverado HD and see how much confidence all that power brings you by visiting Freeway Chevrolet.

New Air Intake Keeps Engine Cool

One of the keys to the increased performance of the new Duramax diesel engine is a cool air intake system that removes humidity while keeping the engine within optimum operating temperatures. Keeping the air cool means the engine will respond better when faced with pulling a heavy load in adverse conditions, such as soaring summer temperatures. “The Duramax diesel has forged a bond with truck customers based on trust and capability,” said the VP of Global Propulsion Systems, Dan Nicholson. “The new Duramax takes those traits to higher levels, making the 2017 Silverado HD one of the most refined on the highway.”

Special Editions Fit Unique Needs

The 2017 Chevrolet Silverado HD comes in a number of special edition packages based on specific wants and needs. People living in cold country will love the Alaskan Edition, with a snow plow prep package, all-weather tires, spray-in bedliner with raised “Alaskan” text and unique graphics on the tailgate and rear quarter panel. For something a bit more refined, ask the pros at Freeway Chevrolet about the High Desert package. This includes a sport bar, lockable storage, 20-inch wheels and a hard tonneau bed cover. For a more stealth appearance, choose Midnight HD. This all-black Silverado HD comes with a Z71 off-road package and bold, black accents. The Custom Sport HD is available in Black or Summit White and is the epitome of sophistication with chrome accents and a body-color grille and bumpers. The Sport HD also has 20-inch aluminum wheels and is outfitted with front and rear park assist to help you get in those tight urban spaces.

Whichever package you choose, remember the 2017 Silverado HD is a hard-working truck that comes with all the comforts of home. Test drive one today at Freeway Chevrolet.
