Future Models

While Chevrolet has yet to unveil its plans for a future version of this crossover SUV, experts fully suspect that General Motors is at work on a full redesign of the Chevrolet Traverse, which could come in the 2017 or 2018 model year. This model is expected to come with more advanced tech features, including the most up-to-date version of Chevrolet’s MyLink infotainment and smartphone integration system.

Topping it off, buyers should look for new powertrains in the mix, which could come from a naturally aspirated V6 and a turbocharged V6. Stay in touch with Sunrise Chevrolet for the latest. For those looking for something smaller, it looks as though Chevrolet is currently at work on a midsize crossover SUV that’s larger than the Equinox but smaller than the Traverse.
