Following the cadence of an updated 2013 GMC Acadia/Acadia Denali, and the 2013 Buick Enclave, the Chevrolet Traverse will also receive an update for the 2013 model year. If it’s anything like what we saw in the Acadia at Chicago, expect fresh sheet metal, a more refined interior, Chevy MyLink, and an industry-first front center air bag.
The 3.6L V6 powertrain is expected to stay as the Lambda II-based crossover’s only engine offering, but it should be joined by a newer, smoother transmission — just like the new Acadia. On the flip side, the rest of the world outside of North America will begin receiving a diesel-powered SUV that is the new TrailBlazer.
In addition to the new Impala and Traverse, Chevrolet plans on displaying the Malibu Eco, Spark, the Tru 140S and Code 130R concept vehicles and Corvette 427 Convertible complete with the 60th Anniversary Edition package.
