2019 Chevrolet Traverse: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

Model Preview

Last year, the Chevrolet Traverse underwent a complete redesign that included a brand-new look, a 400-pound weight reduction, and a notable increase in legroom for second- and third-row passengers. With these updates still fresh, we don’t expect any big changes when the 2019 Traverse arrives.

With its looks still fresh from its 2018 redesign, we expect no dramatic changes to the 2019 Traverse’s appearance. There could, however, be a few tweaks to its available colors or other options, but we expect its design to be indistinguishable from the current model. The same will ring true inside, as we expect the design of the 2019 Traverse’s cabin to remain the same, but we could see a few updates to colors and features.

We expect no changes to the 2019 Travere’s available powertrains, given they just underwent changes for 2018. This means we expect to see the same 3.6-liter V6 engine with 310 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque as the standard engine and a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 255 hp and 295 lb-ft of torque in the RS model. We also expect the standard nine-speed automatic transmission to remain.

IIHS testing is not available for the new-generation Traverse, but it should be soon. The last-generation model did OK in crash tests, receiving “Good” scores on the four tests it completed. One exclusion is the small-overlap test, which it didn’t complete. With its new construction and more advanced safety features, we could see the 2019 Traverse being a Top Safety Pick or higher.

Pricing & Release Date

Though there’s no official release date in place for the 2019 Traverse, last year’s release schedule leads us to believe it’ll arrive in the second quarter of 2018.

With no big changes expected, we anticipate nothing but small inflationary changes to the 2019 Traverse’s official pricing relative to last year's model, which ranges from $33,095 to $48,395 (destination fees included).

Key competitors include the Honda Pilot, Mazda CX-9, and Toyota Highlander.
