17. Chevrolet Traverse
2018 Sales: 73,820
Vs. 2017: +29.6%
Chevrolet’s 3-row crossover, the redesigned 2018 Traverse hit the market in fall 2017 with a dramatic 50 percent sales increase in September compared to 2016, and for the first quarter of 2018 Traverse moved up to No. 14 with a sales increase of 30 percent. For the first half of 2018 Traverse sales continue at 30 percent higher than 2017, but with strong competition Traverse has dropped to No. 17. The 2018 Traverse features a bold new look that follows Chevrolet’s larger full-size SUVs with a focus on interior volume, including seating for up to eight. Two new trim levels are added: RS and High Country. The standard engine is a new 3.6-liter V6 combined with a 9-speed automatic transmission, with either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. The Traverse RS is offered exclusively with a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine that delivers more torque than the V6, also paired with a 9-speed automatic transmission.
