The 2023 Chevy Traverse is the sixth model year for the latest second-gen crossover, following up on a mid-cycle enhancement (otherwise known as a model refresh) introduced for the 2022 model year. Now, GM Authority has learned that the 2023 Chevy Traverse will lose the following two exterior paint options.
According to GM Authority sources, the 2023 Chevy Traverse will delete Silver Ice Metallic (paint code GAN) and Cherry Red Tintcoat (paint code GSK) from the crossover’s paint options lineup. Silver Ice Metallic is available on all trim levels for the 2022 model year, while Cherry Red Tintcoat costs an extra $495 and is available on all trim levels with the exception of the LS.
With the introduction of the 2023 Chevy Traverse, these two paint options will be replaced with two new colors, specifically Radiant Red Tintcoat (paint code GNT) and Sterling Gray Metallic (GXD).
As stated above, the 2023 Chevy Traverse follows a model refresh introduced for the 2022 model year. The Traverse was previously slated to receive a refresh for the 2021 model year, but due to complications stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic, the refresh was delayed by a year.
The 2023 Chevy Traverse will be offered exclusively with the naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LFY gasoline engine, which is rated at 310 horsepower at 6,800 rpm and 266 pound-feet of torque at 2,800 rpm. The V6 engine connects to the GM 9-speed automatic transmission, with both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive available to put the power to the ground.
Under the body panels, the 2023 Chevy Traverse continues to ride on the long-wheelbase variant of the GM C1 platform, which is also shared with the 2018 and newer second-generation Buick Enclave. Production takes place at the GM Lansing Delta Township Assembly facility in Michigan. The 2023 Chevy Traverse is expected to launch in the fall of this year.
