2018 Chevrolet Traverse Sneak Peek

Large vehicles are selling like hotcakes, so to speak, and General Motors is aiming to capitalize on the current trend. Chevrolet crossovers and SUVs already dominate the competition with relative ease, but there’s always room for improvement. That’s why the 2018 Chevrolet Traverse will get a little bigger and boast plenty of technology.

The upcoming Chevrolet Traverse will grow 2 inches in the wheelbase, effectively offering more headroom and legroom for rear passengers. While the cargo area shrinks to 23 cubic feet, that’s still more than enough to top competitors like the Ford Explorer, which offers just 21 cubic feet of space.

As for styling, the 2018 Traverse boasts a more modern look with a truck-line profile. A hexagonal grille and narrow headlights fill out most of the front end while the rear end is similar to the GMC Acadia.

According to Chevrolet, the Traverse drops just over 350 pounds compared to the previous model. That makes the three-row crossover more comparable to competitors like the Honda Pilot.

Performance still comes standard with a standard 3.6-liter V6 engine under the hood. Total power output comes to an impressive 305 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. A smaller 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine is available in the new RS trim. Both engines come mated to a new nine-speed automatic transmission and start/stop technology.

We here at LaSorsa Chevrolet Buick can’t wait for the arrival of the all-new Chevrolet Traverse!

Chevrolet’s Lego Batmobile

The 2017 Detroit Auto Show has come and gone but it’s still the talk of many automotive enthusiast circles. One automaker in particular stole the show when it comes to kids and adults alike.

Chevrolet’s Lego Batmobile, designed by Lego master builders in Connecticut, took more than 344,000 bricks and 1,800 hours to put together. The model is available in a dozen different shades of black, according to Chevrolet.

Chevrolet’s Lego Batmobile is the real deal with a starting price sitting comfortably at $48 million. The model also boasts a maximum towing capacity of 120,000 pounds when properly equipped. It also churns out 20,000 hp, according to the automaker’s official page. The car weighs in at less than 1,700 pounds for maximum agility and handling while chasing down Joker in the upcoming The LEGO Batman Movie.

The Lego model also boasts several of Chevrolet’s top technologies, including smartphone integration software like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. It also boasts a built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot with connectivity for up to seven devices. This gives Robin plenty of distractions until it’s time to spring into action.

We here at LaSorsa Chevrolet are pumped to see the all-new Chevrolet Lego Batmobile in theaters on February 10th!
