Chevrolet has made the 2019 model year of Traverse bigger than the last year one and has even added some extra butch to make it even more desirable than it was before. Chevrolet has already upgraded its Traverse last year, both inside and out and that made this three-row crossover from Chevrolet, but with the changes done to it this year, made it look more handsome. But what makes the 2019 Chevrolet Traverse a great choice for many, is its rides and handling that engage both the passengers and drivers go equally crazy to get another chance to get inside it and leave for a faraway distance, and that is where Chevrolet has already won the war against its rivals.
To explore the newly released 2019 Chevrolet Traverse with all its changes and upgradations this year, we dropped into the showroom of the most famous Apple Valley Chevrolet dealer, and there we got the golden opportunity to test drive the lineup at our free will.
The Power Components
But what makes the rides so enjoyable and fun, needs a bit of mention here. So, you can find Chevrolet making its 2019 year model of Traverse ride on a 3.6-liter V-6 engine so that a 310 of horsepower will always keep it ready for any adventure. The next interesting component of this powertrain is the smooth-shifting 9-speed automatic transmission that can distribute the power to the front wheels just as much required, and this great action rewards back the 2019 Traverse with an EPA rating of 22 mpg in a trip that combines both city and highway drives.
The biggest change that we have seen in the 2019 Chevrolet Traverse this year is the introduction of a V-6 engine that gets boosted up with the RS edition while a 2.0-liter turbo-4 engine which was seen as standard for the last year model is still there as an option. Fortunately, both the engines are still made available, with the latter to be configured only as front-wheel drive.
Chevy has kept the all-wheel-drive system as optional on all the trim levels of its 2019 lineup of Traverse except for the High Country. Though it is available only with an extra shot of price, we recommend those buyers to invest in it, if they truly love driving. The Traverse in every sense ride well, handles well, and thrills well, as its mechanisms under the hood requires driver engagement to a certain level, and the thrill goes off, if you choose the automatic transmission.
At the Apple Valley Chevy, we started with the V-6 engine option and it delivered an engaging ride with an entertaining kind of distribution done with the 9-speed automatic transmission that made a 310 count of hp and 266 lb-ft of torque without any hesitation. We enjoyed every twist and turn, uphill and downhill movements with this crossover from Chevrolet. And driving the 2019 Chevrolet Traverse was simply fun.
