The 2022 Chevy Traverse crossover ushers in a significant model refresh, also known as a model facelift or mid-cycle enhancement (MCE). Along with updates to the styling and interior, the new Traverse also includes the addition of several safety technology features via the standard Chevy Safety Assist package.
- Automatic Emergency Braking (UHY)
- Front Pedestrian Braking (UKJ)
- Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning (UHX)
- Following Distance Indicator (UE4)
- Forward Collision Alert (UEU)
- IntelliBeam (TQ5)
As for 2022 Chevy Traverse RS, Premier, and High Country trim levels, the features list also includes the following:
- Adaptive Cruise Control (KSG)
- Enhanced Automatic Emergency Braking (UGN)
It should be noted that Enhanced Automatic Emergency Braking (UGN) replaces Automatic Emergency Braking (UHY) for 2022 Chevy Traverse RS, Premier, and High Country trim levels.
Previously, the 2021 model year for the Chevy Traverse did not offer the Chevy Safety Assist package (PED) with L and LS trim levels. The package was also optional on LT Cloth and LT Leather trims, while RS, Premier, and High Country trims were equipped with the package as standard.
The Chevy Traverse nameplate was originally set for a model refresh with the 2021 model year, but as a result of delays incurred by the COVID-19 pandemic, the model refresh was pushed back to the 2022 model year instead.
Further updates for the 2022 Chevy Traverse crossover include the deletion of the base L trim level, following in the footsteps of other 2022 Chevy models like the Blazer, Equinox, and Malibu. As such, the LS is the least-expensive trim level on offer for the 2022 model year.
The paint options list was also updated, with Northsky Blue Metallic, Silver Sage Metallic, and Cherry Red Tintcoat replacing Graphite Metallic, Satin Steel Metallic, and Cajun Red Tintcoat. What’s more, the 2022 Chevy Traverse gains a new automatic stop-start disable switch.
