Powertrains & Performance
There is only a single engine option available on the 2018 Traverse, but it’s a doozy. The 3.6-liter V6 engine is paired to a nine-speed automatic, putting out an impressive 310 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque. With this engine, the mid-size SUV gets an impressive 18 mpg city and 27 mpg highway.* It can even tow up to 5,000 pounds.
