2018 Chevrolet Traverse First Look: Going for a Truckier Look

  2018 Chevrolet Traverse First Look: Going for a Truckier Look Chevy adds two new trim levels to better mine the growing appetite for for SUVsThe three GM crossovers, which used to share a platform known as Lambda, have been popular stalwarts for their respective brands. But for this new generation, they've migrated to a new midsize crossover platform known as C1, which underpins the Cadillac XT5 and the new Acadia. The bones have been stretched for the next-generation Traverse and Enclave so they can remain true eight-passenger, three-row family crossovers, which in turn leaves room to slot smaller CUVs such as the Buick Envision and a still-to-come Chevy under them.

GM showed a Tahoe RST in Detroit in white, but it will also be offered in silver, black, and tungsten. What sets the RST apart is a sportier look created by removing chrome and returning pieces such as door handles and the grille surround to body color. The SUV's grille, runningboard, mirror caps, exhaust tips, roof rails, pillars, and window trim are black, and they come with exclusive 22-inch wheels wrapped in Bridgestone P285/45R22 tires.

  Spied! 2018 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 Tests at the Nurburgring Track-ready Corvette gets put through its pacesOur spy photographers have caught the upcoming 2018 Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 undergoing testing at the Nrburgring race track in Germany and it's looking more sinister than the already potent 650-hp Corvette Z06. Up front, the prototype features larger lower air intakes that also give it an angry, more menacing look compared to the standard Corvette Stingray and Z06 models. The front splitter appears to be more aggressive and extends further, similar to the one that comes as part of the Z07 package for the Z06 and Grand Sport variants.

Ahead of the New York Auto Show, the 2018 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban were revealed with an all-new high-performance edition and big powertrain news.

"I'm not predicting a horsepower war in the SUV segment," said Sandor Piszar, Chevrolet truck marketing director.

That level of horsepower was not the mission for the Rally Sport Truck editions, Piszar said. It is more about choice, offering a sportier package for those who want to treat themselves, he said.

"We know there is demand for a family vehicle that goes 0 to 60 mph in 5.7 seconds," Piszar said—with that in mind, RST is designed to carry people and their gear in a vehicle that still is refined enough to be a daily driver, gets decent mileage, can tow 8,400 pounds, and has the added benefit of being a street performance vehicle.

"When you want to hustle, it is incredibly fast with significantly higher levels of acceleration, braking, and road-holding grip," said Eric Stanczak, chief engineer for Chevrolet full-size trucks.

The RST edition of both SUVs will be available this fall, and the Tahoe performance package follows shortly afterward.

The SUVs are made in Arlington, Texas, and Chevy has found that special editions sell twice as quickly as standard models, which Piszar said are already hot sellers.
