New SUVs in Billings: 2018 Chevy Traverse

If you take one look at the average Montana family’s weekly schedule, your brain may start to hurt. Between running errands, dropping kids off at school, driving them around town to all of their activities, and picking them up from their orthodontist appointments, Montana parents spend quite a bit of time in their vehicle.

For as much time as Montana parents spend driving, their vehicle may feel like another member of the family. While searching for new SUVs in Billings, parents want a SUV that will be a reliable member of their family.

The new 2018 Chevy Traverse is built for go-getters, adventure seekers, and the Montana family that’s always on the move. Learn why the new Traverse should be the next addition to your family, and find out how you can take it home today with a lease offer* you won’t find on other Billings SUVs.



Performance that Never Lags: New SUVs in Billings

From here to there, down and around, up and over, you can be sure the new 2018 Chevy Traverse’s strong 3.6L V6 engine will keep up with you.

Montana roads and weather can be a bit unpredictable, which is why the new Traverse is equipped with traction mode select. Adjust your vehicle’s performance on challenging road surfaces with the simple turn of a dial to one of these four settings:

  • FWD: A good setting choice for everyday driving. Switching to FWD can help improve fuel efficiency.
  • 4x4/Snow: Allows you to get better control of your Billings SUV when faced with snow and ice.
  • Off-Road: This setting sends more torque to the rear wheels for improved driving on sand, grass, gravel, or loose dirt.
  • Tow/Haul: The Traverse comes with a towing capability of 5,000 pounds.** When your Traverse is equipped with the available Trailering Package, this mode keeps your vehicle at a lower gear, giving you more torque while pulling a trailer.


Do it All While Taking it All

Seating is always a major concern when it comes to new SUVs in Billings. The Traverse can comfortably seat seven passengers while the third seat is up, and includes Smart Slide® seating, allowing the second-row seat on the passenger side to be moved and angled forward.

No one has ever complained about having a little extra room while driving or riding in Billings SUVs. The 2018 Chevy Traverse offers best-in-class maximum cargo space of 98.2 cu. ft with a hidden underfloor rear storage compartment, ensuring all passengers have their own space, plus a little extra.

The available storage compartments also allow you to bring all you could ever need along with you on your journey to the beach, the mountains, or a trip to Grandma’s house.

Speaking of storage, if you ever find yourself with your hands full while hauling out items to your Traverse, you’ll want to take advantage of the Traverse’s gesture liftgate. With a gentle kicking motion of your foot, the liftgate will automatically open.
