Here’s When 2023 Chevy Traverse Production Will Start34
The 2023 Chevy Traverse is poised to introduce the sixth model year of the second-generation nameplate, ushering in minor changes and updates as compared to the refreshed 2022 model year. Now, GM Authority has learned when production of the 2023 Chevy Traverse will begin.
According to GM Authority sources, production of the 2023 Chevy Traverse is slated to kick off on June 6th, 2022. Order books for the 2023 Chevy Traverse have been open since March 24th. Production takes place at the GM Lansing Delta Township Assembly facility in Michigan.
Unsurprisingly, the 2023 Chevy Traverse will be largely unchanged compared to the refreshed 2022 model year. That said, there are revisions worth pointing out, including exterior paint options. As GM Authority covered previously, the 2023 Chevy Traverse will delete two paint colors previously offered for the 2022 model year, including Silver Ice Metallic (paint code GAN) and Cherry Red Tintcoat (paint code GSK). These two exterior colors will be replaced with two new hues, namely Radiant Red Tintcoat (paint code GNT) and Sterling Gray Metallic (GXD).
The Chevy Traverse slid into fourth in the Mainstream Large Three-Row Crossover segment in Q1 of the 2022 calendar year, with 23,464 units sold, slotting above the Kia Telluride and below the Honda Pilot. Those sales figures represent a 38.31-percent drop as compared to sales figures from Q1 of the 2021 calendar year, at which time 38,037 units of the Chevy Traverse were sold.

As covered previously, the Chevy Traverse was originally 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.
Under the hood, the Chevy Traverse is equipped with the atmospheric 3.6L V6 LFY gasoline engine, rated at 310 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque, mating to the GM nine-speed automatic transmission. Under the skin is the long-wheelbase variant of the GM C1 platform.

How about delivering the 2022 Traverse’s before worrying about when they will build the 2023. My order has been sitting in a parking lot in Michigan (pending dispatch) waiting to be delivered since late February.
I swear GM couldn’t find their ass with there hands tied behind their back.
Absolutely, spot on!!! We finally cancelled our order and bought another new brand. We’ve seen one new 2022 Traverse and it was in private hands. I simply don’t understand GM anymore!
I’m right there with you. Ours was ordered on Sept 13th, has been built since the beginning of March, but will not move our car from Michigan.
Agreed with the last commenter. We have Traverse models that were built IN OCTOBER!! that still haven’t been delivered yet. It’s a huge mess and a joke up there in Lansing.
With the Traverse plant being down for around six months in 2022, I think we would expect a huge drop in production totals, so where is that fact in your story?
Still waiting on our 2022 traverse that we purchased in November of 2021. All they can tell me is that it is ina compliance hold and can’t do anything about it.
We waited over 5 months for our to finally be delivered. Granted we love this far but it was a little disheartening waiting so long for it to show up still missing the chip for heated seats. We’re told that it’s supposed to come in around July. Guess we’ll see!
Mine was ordered in late September 2021, built in February 2022 and still waiting.
They priced for a brand new 2022 Chevy Treverse is $5,000 over the market price value. These dealerships are trying to get the hell over.
My 2022 Traverse was built in the first week of December 2021 and I picked it up here in the Tampa area on the Monday after Christmas 🎄. No Market Adjustment by Stingray Chevy who already had sold my trade in that I was still driving three weeks after the deal.
@Florida Bill – when did you order your Traverse for the build to start Dec 2021? I ordered my 2022 the first week of March this year. Just heard yesterday the Lansing plant is shut down until at least May 9th to re-tool for new Arcadia. After reading the comments zero faith I’m going to get my Traverse in the 3 months the dealer estimated.
I just ordered my 2022 Traverse the first week of March this year also. I was told last week that I have to upgrade to the 2023 because production has stopped for 2022. I feel like they should have to honor the orders already received before stopping production but they are making me upgrade with no price or information. We have a GM plant here in Texas so they “think” or they said, mine “should” be made down the street and not coming from out of state. Can I trust that after reading your stories? Very dishearting!!
Good luck with that. We were told from the beginning that the only plant making the Traverse is the Lansing Michigan plant.
We were told the price would be the same for the 2023 as we were quoted for the 2022, hope our dealer is correct on that!
My dealer said the price would increase as it does every year but it shouldn’t be more than $1500. I Google everything I could about the 2023 Traverse and found an article that said the price would be $46K. I think the base for the Traverse RS was $44K before my add on so that is $2K, not $1,500!! I don’t think dealers know and they want us to agree to order an upgraded year without knowing the price?! Make sure you get that “same price” guarantee, in writing…..I bet they change their tune. Keep me posted.
The new Acadia is not due till the 2024 model year so there should be no re-tooling this Spring as you stated.
Good luck. We traded our 2019 Traverse in and ordered a new 2022 on Sept 13th, 2021. We were told it would be 8-12 weeks. It was finally built the first week in March, but GM will not move it from a parking lot in Lansing, Michigan. GM customer service is an absolute joke . The only people you get are bottom level reps working from home. GM has no listed phone number for there corporate office. No one in any type of management position will talk to customers and all the reps are trained to say is “Call your dealership, they have the most up to date information!” We have always owned Chevys. This will probably be the last. They have absolutely no respect for there customers.
Jill, when you ordered your new Traverse, the plant had been down for almost six months and was still not running so your dealer mislead you by providing you with a timeline that they or their GM reps would not know. As a previous salesman and finance office manager at GM dealerships for over 15 years, yes the dealer will have the most up-to-date information on your order but unfortunately these days because of the chip shortage, even GM can’t estimate delivery dates until the new vehicle is loaded on a truck or train.
Sounds like you still work for GM!!
Never worked for GM, only at GM dealerships, so I am not defending GM but your dealer would have known the plant was down when you ordered your Traverse, plus the latest info was on this website, but your dealership still gave you a delivery date range that was not obtainable with the plant being down for so many months prior because of the chip shortage. You should be asking them how they determined the delivery date range they gave you. I too was going to order a 2022 Traverse in October 2021 to replace our 2018 Traverse but because the plant start-up date kept on being pushed back as updated on this website regularly and since 8 passenger seating was on hold, we bought a new 2021 Acadia that was sitting on the lot.
Can anyone confirm that order books for the 2023 Chevy Traverse have been open since March 24th? My dealership is telling me that production will start as mentioned in the article above on June 6, but that they can’t place an order for the 2023 model yet. As of this week (April 25), the only 2023 Chevy model taking dealership orders is the Trailblazer.
I just talked to my dealership today and they were able to order the Traverse premiere only. We had ordered the RS package, but he said they are only making the premiere package right now and not sure when the other packages will be made. So they ordered one for their lot (exactly what we ordered….how convenient!!!).
Thanks for sharing. I just looked up the premier package and I don’t like it. I don’t want chrome, I want the black out look. I will hold out to see what happens. Prayer works lol
You can order the Premier in the Red line addition and that may have the a black out you are looking for
Looked it up; That is above my budget lol. My dealer just updated me and said we were #11 on the list. We will see what happens after Jume 6th.
You can order the Premier in the Red line addition and that may have the a black out you are looking for… check it out
I can’t confirm but all of us being notified already had an order in for the 2022 model so maybe we are first and new orders have to wait until June 6th? Just guessing.
I just want to know when the 2 new colors will be available to see! I am a life long GM owner and getting ready to trade my 2011 Silverado – down to 2 vehicles (1) 2022/23 Traverse RS or (2) 2022/23 Ford Explorer ST. Both impossible to get right now both shipped missing features (heated seats, parking sensors, heated steering wheels…..) – i can wait but with price gouging and chip uncertainty, might have to wait until 2024!?!?!
The heated seat chip became available late April. Only chips missing are heated steering wheel and park assist. I want to see the colors too!
We ordered our 2022 Travers Redline in January 2022 and were told to expect it around April. That turned into a July delivery, and just today were advised that the 2022 model year has stopped production and orders have been changed to 2023’s. Zero idea on when its actually going to show up.
Ordered my 2022 Traverse on Jan 11, 2022. It’s been completed, sitting in a Lansing lot since March 10! Beyond frustrated. Looking at purchasing a 2022 Ford Explorer from a local dealership if GM can’t figure out how to deliver my new Traverse.
