Every year, Motor Trend assesses all of the year’s newly released or redesigned SUVs and crossovers and chooses the best one to present with their SUV of the year award. We are pleased to announce that the 2018 Chevrolet Traverse is in the running for this year’s award. They were impressed by the new exterior look of the Traverse, as well as its interior styling and technology, especially ample USB ports ready to plug in devices for a crowd. But their highest praise was reserved for the Traverse’s handing and driving dynamics: “The handling is excellent for the size and weight, and the new automatic (transmission) maximizes power delivery without always grabbing the highest gear no matter what.” Stay tuned to this blog to find out if the Chevy Traverse brings home the big prize as soon as Motor Trend announces it. Phillips Chevrolet in Frankfort, Lansing, and Bradley has Illinois’ Largest Chevy Inventory including a great selection of Traverse with new 2018s arriving every day.
