2015 Chevy Traverse Changes, Updates Detailed: RPO Central3
The first-generation Chevy Traverse has been a strong seller for the Bow Tie brand. In 2013 alone, the full-size crossover sold just a few thousand units short of the 100,000 mark in the United States. The General then gave the Lambda-based CUV a fairly extensive midcycle refresh for the 2013 model year, making it even more competitive in an ever-growing segment. And for the 2015 model year, Chevy’s largest crossover is getting a few minor updates.
To start, the 2015 Traverse replaces three of its exterior colors with three news ones. Gone are Cyber Gray Metallic, Atlantis Blue Metallic, and Crystal Red Tintcoat; in their place are Siren Red Tintcoat, Sable Metallic, and Blue Velvet Metallic. In addition, the Ebony/Mojave interior color combination is replaced with Ebony/Saddle Up, and aluminum 18×7.5-inch wheels are replaced with a machined set.
Completing the deletions list is the removal of three features: HD radio, integrated spotter blind-zone mirrors, and accessory entertainment package that was mounted to the backs of the front seat headrests.
And as for new features, there is one: Siri Eyes Free. Notably, the Traverse does not get OnStar 4G LTE and/or Wi-Fi hotspot capability; but neither do any of the other Lambda-based crossovers, including the 2015 Enclave and 2015 Acadia.

Should never have removed the blind spot mirrors from any of Chevrolet vehicles with large blind spots such as the traverse and Equinox. Customers are not happy about this deletion.
$44k vehicle – No Blindspot – No Memory Seats unless LTZ.
I have 2LT with EVERY Option but can’t get Memory Seats. I don’t care about a chrome package of any kind. Memory Seats are a necessity with one person 6’3″ and one 5’4″. Don’t care about roof rails or wheels.
I don’t understand it…
