All-New 2018 Chevy Traverse, Buick Enclave To Use Last-Gen V-6 Engine

What a shame. Seems the accountants got their way and spoiled a great redesign.

But it's "GM's well-regarded 3.6-liter engine!!!" It even says so, right here:

GM should look at what Ford is doing. When they refreshed their Explorer, they added an upgraded 2.3 ecoboost turbo 4 cylinder. When they released the new Edge, they changed 2 engines - the 2.0 4 cylinder and 2.7 twin-turbo V6. If anything, the new Enclave Avenir should have a twin-turbo V6 to differentiate it from regular Enclaves and justify the price premium. With the same powertrain, I'd buy a regular Enclave instead as the extra money for fancy trim isn't worth it to me. GM really needs to fire the accountants!

Without new powertrain options, I don't think a new Traverse will be on my short list to replace our 2010 Traverse.

Overall our 2010 has been a decent vehicle, but with the technology advances over the last 7-8 years, GM is falling behind the times if they don't upgrade the powertrain.

My 2016 F150 Ecoboost is a much more capable vehicle and gets better mileage than our 2010 Traverse and I would expect it to, since it is 6 years newer.

If I'm going to lay out $40,000 on a new vehicle to replace my Traverse, it better be more fuel efficient, maybe a 10spd transmission, etc?

Even the new Equinox is getting a baby diesel. GM needs to step up their game if they want to keep market share in the CUV world. Their offerings are pretty boring and don't give a buyer a reason to choose them.
