We recently read an article written by Jill Ciminillo, Automotive Editor at KLEW TV in Idaho, where she shared the 5 things she loves about the 2018 Chevrolet Traverse which got us thinking: what do we love about the Traverse? More like: what don’t we love?

Whether you’re looking for the perfect vehicle to fit the entire family (and some friends) or you’ve been searching for a stylish SUV with cargo space to match, you’ll want to pay close attention to what we’re about to share!

SPACE ON SPACE ON SPACE 

For starters, the 2018 Chevrolet Traverse was designed with a Best in Class Maximum Cargo Space of 98.2 cubic feet – which means you can really do it all! Whether you’re spending time with the family, grabbing groceries or completing home renovations, the Traverse is designed to provide you with optimal cargo space without compromising passenger seating. What’s better? The Chevrolet Traverse comes equipped with HIDDEN UNDERFLOOR REAR STORAGE space!

You’re probably wondering: How will I access all of these extra cargo space if my hands are full? Well, the Traverse has you covered! The Premier and High Country models of the Traverse come with hands-free gesture liftgate, which means all you need to do is lightly kick your foot under the tailgate. That’s it . . . that’s all!

“. . . With the most affordable unlimited 4G LTE data plan in the auto industry . . . our momentum can only grow.” – Alan Batey, President of GM North America & Global Head of Chevrolet

Did you know that in 2016 alone, owners of Chevrolet vehicles used 200 percent more OnStar 4G LTE data in comparison to 2015? That’s more than 4 million gigabytes of data and 17.5 million hours of video! With many customers worried they would run out of data, Chevrolet made the groundbreaking plan to enable unlimited data across their entire retail lineup with the help of AT&T.

Chevrolet is the first mass-market automaker to offer a prepaid

The first automaker to offer 4G LTE connectivity, Chevrolet has sold more than 3.1 million OnStar 4G LTE-connected vehicles over the last 3 years. In fact, Chevrolet has more 4G LTE equipped vehicles on the road than any other automaker! For $20 per month, Chevrolet drivers will gain access to an unlimited prepaid data plan that will make it easier than ever to stay connected and close jobs on the road.

Alan Batey, President of GM North America & global head of Chevrolet, explains ” . . . we have contractors bidding jobs in their Silverados, families streaming movies in their Suburbans and Malibus and everyone tapping into the cloud for music . . .”. It seems to make the most sense, now more than ever, for Chevrolet to offer their customers an option of unlimited connectivity of the road.

OnStar 4G LTE is available for Chevrolet customers as of March 3.
