We’ve all heard the common expressions about life; it’s a journey, it’s what you make of it, it’s what happens to us while we are making other plans.
However we look at it, life is the most important thing we have. It gives us meaning. It gives us friends and family. It gives us love. No matter where we choose to go in life, getting there is sure to be an adventure. Make sure it’s an adventure worth traversing.
The adventure you’ve geared up for
With the 2018 Traverse, you’ll have best-in-class maximum cargo space of 98.2 cu. ft.1 But what does that mean? That means your tent, sleeping bags, food, flashlights, flint & tinder, firewood and so much more. While the third row is safely packed with the essentials, there’s still room for four on this camping trip. Don’t forget the s’mores!
The stargazing adventure
On the 2018 Traverse, you’ll find an available Dual SkyScape 2-panel power sunroof. Each panel is placed above the first two rows of seating, so whether you’re bringing the kids or trying to spend some quality time with your significant other, the 2018 Traverse is perfect for a night of stargazing. Lean back, relax and enjoy the view.
The ‘drop everything and go’ adventure
More often than not, even the most spontaneous adventures reach a point where a little bit of planning is required. For that, you’ll be happy to be driving a 2018 Traverse with available OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi2.
We’ve all dreamt about it. “What if I drop everything and just…go?” The true spirit of adventure, throwing caution to the wind means not planning out every little step. However, when you are looking for a place to stop for the night, all you have to do is connect your phone or other devices to the network and you’ll be able to find the perfect place.
The never-ending adventure
With a 9-speed automatic transmission and start/stop technology, the 2018 Traverse utilizes every drop of gas in the tank by smoothly shifting between gears and intelligently stopping and starting the engine. It is these two features that will make your next road trip one of the most economical. So, take the wheel of the 2018 Traverse and get ready to rack up the miles and bask in every roadside view. It’ll be a while before you see the words “low fuel.”
The adventure you send them on
It’s a daunting realization when your child takes the seat behind the wheel. Let the 2018 Traverse give you some peace of mind with Teen Driver. This safety feature lets you stay aware of your child’s driving habits and even lets you put some limitations in place, such as maximum radio volume while the vehicle is in operation. As a parent, you’ve been on many of your own adventures. Now, it’s their turn.
There are all kinds of adventures we go on throughout our lives. Whether you’re visiting a lifelong friend or gearing up for your next big chapter, every trip is an adventure — some are just bigger than others.
