The Chevrolet Traverse RS is part of an expanded six-trim lineup for the model. The RS package styling elements include a black grille, black window trim, black roof rails and black bowtie emblems, along with 20-inch aluminum wheels featuring a Dark Android finish.
“The 2018 Traverse offers a full product lineup positioned to effectively compete across the segment,” said Steve Majoros, Chevrolet marketing director for Cars and Crossovers. “By offering customers more choice with higher-end entries like the RS, which has a more street-inspired look, and top-of-the-line High Country, Chevrolet now offers a comfortable and connected Traverse for every lifestyle.”
The RS is the first Traverse model to offer a turbocharged powerplant. The direct-injected Ecotec 2.0L turbo engine generates up to 257 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of torque. Ninety percent of the peak torque is available at only 2,100 rpm. A nine-speed automatic transmission is matched with the engine, contributing to EPA-estimated fuel economy of 20 mpg in city driving and 26 mpg on the highway.

HID headlamps and LED daytime running lamps
Upper and lower active aero shutters
Chevrolet MyLink radio with 8-inch diagonal color touchscreen and navigation
