2017 Chevrolet Traverse Interior

Chevrolet is still keeping interior specs of the 2017 Traverse
a closely held secret. We however expect the upcoming model to
continue offering a luxurious cabin.  Its cabin will be
spacious enough to accommodate 8 passengers on its three-row
seating arrangement.

Among the features we expect to find on its cabin include
leather upholstered seats which will also be power-adjustable
especially the front ones. There will be additional control
buttons mounted on its steering wheel which will most likely be
wrapped in leather. There will be a 8.7-inch HD display and a
premium infotainment system as well as a state-of-the-art sound
system. The cabin will accommodate eight passengers and
will offer plenty of head and leg room and ample cargo space.
The rear seats can be folded to further expand the cargo space.
Other features will include power steering and a new gearbox.

Technological features will include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth
connectivity, Smartphone integration, USB Ports, GPS

Price and release date

Since the vehicle release date is still far away, the automaker
has not released any official information regarding its price
or release date.

However, we don’t expect the price of the 2017 Chevrolet
Traverse to vary much from the current model’s. As such, we
expect the base LS version of the 2017 Chevrolet Traverse to
cost around $ 33,000 while the 1LT trim will start from $
36,000 and $ 38,500 for the 2LT. The expected release date
is mid-2016.
