Anyone interested in the new 2021 Chevy Traverse will have plenty of customization options at their disposal, with numerous trim levels and special edition packages to choose from, including the new Sport Edition Package and Midnight Edition package, as GM Authority covered previously. Now, we’re taking a closer look at the special edition packages offered with the 2021 Traverse, comparing the equipment of the Midnight Edition package, the Sport Edition package, and the Redline Edition package, with the sporty RS trim level tossed in for good measure.
Let’s kick things off with the Midnight Edition package, which equips a variety of dark-themed styling enhancements to give the Traverse a sleek, stealthy new look. These include a Black Ice Grille, black trim bits, black mirror caps, black badging, and black roof rails, as well as 20-inch black wheels. To top it off, the 2021 Chevy Traverse Midnight Edition package is only available in Mosaic Black Metallic paint. Pricing is set at $1,295 when added to the LS trim, and $1,145 when added to either the LT Cloth trim (1LT) or LT Leather trim (3LT), with LT trims forgoing the roof rails, as exclusively revealed by GM Authority.
Next up is the Sport Edition package, which is essentially identical to the Midnight Edition package, offering a Black Ice grille, black trim bits, black badging, and 20-inch black wheels. That said, the Sport Edition also includes body-color sideview mirror caps, and critically, is offered in conjunction with every exterior paint option with the exception of Mosaic Black Metallic.
Like the Midnight Edition package, the Sport Edition package is priced at $1,295 when added to the LS trim, and $1,145 when added to either the LT Cloth trim (1LT) or LT Leather trim (3LT), with LT trims forgoing roof rails.
The 2021 Chevy Traverse Redline Edition takes the popular dark color scheme and adds a splash of crimson to the mix, with a Black Ice grille, a dark tailgate applique, gloss black window surrounds, Dark tail lamps, and 20-inch Gloss Black wheels with Red Accents. Pricing is set at $2,495.
Finally, we have the sporty 2021 Chevy Traverse RS, which, unlike the other three options mentioned above, is a full trim level, rather than a package. Highlights include a Black Ice grille and fog lamp bezels, as well as a Dark tailgate applique, Gloss Black window surrounds, and trim-level-specific roof rails, as well as 20-inch Dark Android wheels. The 2021 Chevy Traverse RS starts at $44,895 when equipped with FWD, and $46,995 when equipped with AWD.
