Starting 2019 Chevrolet Traverse prices have grown between $200 and $800, depending on trim level, compared to the 2018 model. However, one particular 2019 Traverse trim experienced a $2,400 price.
According to a pricing analysis performed by GM Authority, the starting price of the 2019 Traverse L model saw a $200 increase over the 2018 model. The starting prices of the LS and LT Cloth (1LT) rose by $500, while starting prices of the RS and Premier trims grew by $700. The base price of the range-topping 2019 Traverse High Country increased by $800.
The big news, however, is the $2,400 price drop of the LT Leather (3LT) model. The reason for the discount is that Chevy decontended this trim level, removing several features in order to reduce the starting price. The removed features are now part of an optional 3LT Premium Package that includes the following content:
- 8″ diagonal color touch-screen with Navigation and Chevrolet Infotainment
- Bose premium 10-speaker system
- Rear Camera Mirror
- Surround Vision
- 120-volt power outlet
We believe that Chevrolet made the change in order to lower the starting price due to competitive pressures presented by new, similarly-optioned segment entrants such as the Volkswagen Atlas and Subaru Ascent.

About Chevrolet Traverse
The Chevrolet Traverse is a full-size crossover utility vehicle (CUV). It is the biggest Chevrolet crossover currently offered, slotting above the subcompact Chevrolet Trax and compact Chevrolet Equinox. It will also slot above the much-rumored, future Chevrolet Blazer.
The current model was introduced for the 2018 model year and represents the second generation of the Traverse nameplate. It rides on the extended-length GM C1 platform shared with the second-generation Buick Enclave. A shorter variant of the same platform underpins the second-gen GMC Acadia, first-gen Cadillac XT5 and all-new 2019 Chevy Blazer.
Compared to its first-generation predecessor, the second-gen Traverse is an all-new vehicle that is larger, lighter, sleeker and more modern. It also introduces new trim levels, including High Country and RS - neither of which were present on the first-generation model.
