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.
