Chevy’s Stand Up Job on the 2018 Traverse

By Emily Eppley | November 9th, 2017

Great news for paddle boarding enthusiasts in the market for a new car: the 2018 Chevrolet Traverse SUP is a stand up paddle board concept vehicle. This concept features a thoughtful blend of board-ready accessories and unique stylings that set this crossover apart from the crowd. Check out what’s anticipated on this vehicle and then talk to a team member today about test driving one of our currently in-stock vehicles. You can even start shopping current Chevrolet Traverses now!

Stand up paddle boarding is one of the fastest-growing waterspouts and the equipment to practice is large and requires special accessories to accommodate the gear. The 2018 Chevy Traverse SUP would have a stand up paddleboard carrier by Thule® as well as a wave-inspired exterior that is sure to catch attention. You can also look forward to a unique Riviera Paddlesurf paddleboard and paddle, along with water-resistant all-weather floor liners to make it easy to protect your vehicle.

The 2018 Traverse comes equipped with a 3.6-liter V6 engine standard, but on the RS model you can opt for a zippy 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder engine that practically jumps off the line. With the intelligent Start/Stop technology, the engine turns off when stopped for long periods – like at stoplights – to save you fuel whenever possible. And if you opt for the High Country trim, you’ll enjoy the advanced twin-clutch all-wheel drive for improved control and connected handling.

This midsize SUV comfortably seats up to eight passengers and also has best-in-class cargo capacity at 98.2 cubic feet with the second- and third-row seats folded flat. If you fold down the front passenger seat plus the two splits behind it, you can accommodate items up to eight feet in length too so you have adaptability on the go. And the hands-free liftgate makes loading cargo a breeze.
