Prices for the 2022 Chevy Traverse mid-size crossover will start at $34,395 in the United States, $1,195 destination freight charge included.
As we reported previously, the Chevy Traverse has ditched the base L trim for the 2022 model year, with the LS now serving as the entry-level trim for the full-size crossover. Prices for the 2021 Chevy Traverse L started at $30,995, so with its departure, the base price of the vehicle has risen to $34,395. The L trim level for the 2021 Traverse offered the same equipment as the LS, but was not available with the various LPO/dealer-installed options and could only be ordered in Summit White and Mosaic Black Metallic with a Jet Black interior.

The 2022 Chevy Traverse represents the first year of production for the Mid Cycle Enhancement (MCE) version of the crossover. It features revised exterior styling with new standard LED headlamps and a mildly revamped interior with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Other changes include the addition of an Automatic Start/Stop disable switch and Safety Alert Seat, along with a new standard Chevy Safety Assist package that brings more active safety tech to the vehicle. The MCE Chevy Traverse was originally intended to launch for the 2021MY, but its arrival was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The only engine currently available for the Traverse is the naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LFY gasoline motor, which produces 310 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque. The engine comes paired with the GM nine-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive, with all-wheel drive available for a premium.
Production of the 2022 Chevy Traverse will commence at the GM Lansing Delta Township plant in Michigan on August 2nd of this year. It will begin shipping to Chevy dealerships in the U.S., Canada and elsewhere shortly thereafter.
