Chevrolet Traverse 2018 TestDriveNow Video Review By Auto Critic Steve Hammes.
As a parent of a 12-year old I’m always running from here to there, usually with lots of gear in tow. Sometimes we’re transporting Maddie’s friends as well, or headed out of town and often, consolidating my extended family into one vehicle that can hold at least 6. And that’s where the 3-row crossover becomes the star. It has minivan qualities while preserving a sense of style. And Chevy believes its all-new Traverse is the perfect solution.

MSRP as-tested: $54,030.

      So my GM rep corrected me about the Traverse's cargo volume; it DID NOT GET SMALLER FOR 2018. It's actually BIGGER. But based upon the new SAE guidelines for measuring such things the numbers went down.

      Nice review of both High Country and Buick Enclave Avenir. Which one would you recommend better for their price point?

      I think Chevy knocked it out of the park with the new redesigned Traverse. I like this car better than the Ford Explorer now.

      My husband has one. We've already filled all 8 seats when combining cars, and everyone was comfortable. This thing feels luxurious. Not something I expected out of Chevy. My husband is 6'3" and struggles fitting in vehicles. His hair stuck out the sunroof of the Acadia. This vehicle fits him perfectly. Long drives are very comfortable. Very happy with the purchase.

      That is a nice looking ride. I just got a 15 traverse used to replace an Escape. We needed the extra room and the extra row is helpful when doing stuff with extended family.

      Great review Steve, thank you. But I have to say, it is missing a 3rd row middle seat head rest. Not a good decision. I hope GM will put it back.

      rangerover06sc In reply to Teddy

      Teddy Well actually it's just GMs terminology for mechanical rear torque vectoring. Like you would find in some of the Acuras with SH-AWD, also in some AWD BMWs and Audi's. In order to fully appreciate the significance of mechanical torque vectoring you have to keep in mind that a conventional rear( or front) differential has a fundamental problem. The basic concept of a differential is that it splits torque between two sides(wheels in the case of rear and front differentials) evenly(50/50). However because of the complex gearing system differentials use, it can spin both sides equally, one side faster then the other, or spin on side entirely. It does this based on friction, which means the wheel with the least traction spins the fastest. So if one wheel has traction and the other doesn't, you're not going anywhere. And seeing how torque is based on friction, it means that the amount of torque you produce is limited by the wheel with the least traction. Torque vectoring fixes this problem as it allows up to 100% of the torque being sent to the rear differential to go one wheel. So if the electronically controlled torque vectoring differential decides to send 100% of the torque to the wheel with all the traction that means that enough torque can be generated to start moving the car forward. But keep in mind traction control can do exactly the same thing with ABS by individually braking certain wheels, as it creates enough friction to stop spinning the wheel with the least traction and start spinning the wheel with the most traction. Some vehicles do this a lot better then others and some companies don't do it at. Subarus typically do this very well, especially in x mode.

      I hope that explanation helps and isn't too confusing. Basically to some it up, on a conventional differential the amount torque produced is limited by the wheel with the least traction. In the Traverse with twin clutch AWD that problem doesn't exist, at least not on the rear differential. It can send all the torque, available to the rear, to whichever wheel it wants, meaning torque produced is limited only by the wheel with the most traction instead of the least. And that is certainly a good thing.

      all right, basically its a "switch" to balance torque output on different rd conditions. It did decorate the traverse a little bit. the bad news, however, is that gm is pushing customers to pay more if they would like to try it. After all, its only available for high country, the top trim which costs more than 53k bucks. Thx for explanation and wait to see how new traverse performs on snowy rd.

      Teddy Hi, Teddy. No - the twin-clutch AWD system in use here splits torque between the rear wheels for improved control and handling. It also aids in efficiency. The automatic transmission in use here is a traditional type.

      hate that all 3 row crossovers try hard to push the market towards captain chairs in the second row, 99% of the time I would like to keep my car 5 passenger and only add third row when there are more than 5 passengers. would like to see a 5 passenger plus their luggage score.

      andy Walczewski Not true. You can extrapolate from the top trim down. Plus, this is what GM stocks in the press fleet - not my choice.
