General Motors has released a new video providing a walkaround tour of the mid-cycle update (MCE) 2022 Chevy Traverse, enabling customers to familiarize themselves with the full-size crossover as it begins arriving at dealerships across the U.S.
This video goes over all the changes and differences that set the newly refreshed 2022 Chevy Traverse apart from the pre-update 2021 model. The most apparent change applied to the crossover for the 2022MY is the updated exterior styling, which includes a new front fascia with narrow LED headlamps, a different rear fascia with different taillights and new alloy wheel options. The video also runs down the available trim levels, which include the entry-level LS, mid-grade LT, sporty RS, well-appointed Premier and range-topping Premier Redline. The LS and LT trim levels will also be offered in conjunction with Midnight and Sport exterior styling packages.
Inside, the 2022 Chevy Traverse gets 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 walkaround video touches on some of these changes and highlights other aspects of the vehicle’s interior, including features like the Smart Slide outboard seats, available hands-free power liftgate, available eight-inch driver information center and OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot.
The 2022 Chevy Traverse sticks with its naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LFY gasoline engine, 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 price premium.
As we reported previously, the MCE version of the Chevy Traverse was originally intended to launch for the 2021MY, but its arrival was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As such, 2022 will be the first model year for the updated model.
