2018 Traverse Gets High Marks on Car Seat Test

We already knew that the all-new, redesigned 2018 Chevrolet Traverse is a great choice for families. A roomy interior with seating for 8, plenty of infotainment options, and a wide array of advanced safety features in the Traverse help it check off most of the boxes on any family’s wish list. And now another box can be checked off in favor of the Traverse as it has passed Cars.com child car seat test with great scores. The Traverse earned a top score of A in all categories but one (it scored a still-respectable B in third row access), proving just as easy, roomy and secure for infant car seats as big-kid boosters and everything in between.  Phillips Chevrolet in Frankfort, Lansing, and Bradley has Illinois’ Largest Chevy Inventory including a great selection of Traverse with new 2018s arriving every day.

New Chevrolet Crossover Spotted

This heavily camouflaged vehicle that was recently spotted testing is expected to be a new crossover utility vehicle joining the Chevy TraverseEquinox, and Trax in Chevrolet’s lineup. This new crossover will be larger than the compact Trax and midsize Equinox, but smaller than the full-size Traverse. Many in the automotive community believe that Chevy will revive the Blazer model name for this new CUV. The Blazer is expected to be built on the same platform as the Traverse, with the option of two or three rows of seating. That sounds like the perfect combination for maximizing cargo room and comfort while maintaining great fuel efficiency and performance. The Blazer is expected to arrive in time for the 2018 model year, so that means an official announcement should be coming soon. Check back on this blog often for the latest news on the Blazer and the whole Chevy lineup. Phillips Chevrolet of Frankfort, Lansing and Bradley has Illinois’ Largest Chevy Inventory, including a great selection of crossovers in three different sizes to meet a variety of needs.
