The Chevrolet Traverse is currently in the third year of its second generation, and continues to offer styling enhancements via the optional Blackout Package. Here’s the complete rundown on what this package offers as well as its availability.
The latest 2020 model year for the Chevrolet Traverse offers the Blackout Package on a select number of trim levels. These include:
- 3LT (LT Leather)
The package is not available on the base L trim level, the sporty RS, or the range-topping High Country.
The Chevrolet Traverse Blackout Package is a dealer-installed option (LPO-level), and is assigned the RPO code PDB.
Content for this package includes:
- Black finish grille
- Front and rear black Bow Tie emblems
- Black rear license plate applique
- Black exterior badging
- Black mirror caps
- Black fog lamp trim for LT and Premier trim levels
It should be noted that the Blackout Package was first offered on the Chevrolet Traverse with the introduction of the second-generation for the 2018 model year. However, the latest 2020 model year now introduces new content to the package, specifically the black fog lamp trim for LT and Premier trim levels.
Pricing is dependent on the trim level picked. Grab the package with the LS trim level, and it’ll pad the bottom line for another $885. Meanwhile, pricing on every other trim level comes in at $1,185.
For reference, the 2020 Chevrolet Traverse is equipped with the naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LFY engine, which is tuned to produce 310 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque. Output is routed through the GM 9T65 nine-speed automatic transmission.
Similar to the Midnight Edition Package now offered with the 2020 Chevrolet Malibu, adding more black trim to a vehicle with a specialized package is hugely popular these days throughout the industry. Blacked-out trim can give a vehicle a sleeker, more refined appearance, especially when paired with chrome details and accents.
We certainly expect the Blackout Package to be a popular choice with the 2020 Chevrolet Traverse. Are you a fan of the extra black trim bits?
