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.
