GM is gearing up to launch several next-generation full-size crossover models, including the next-gen Chevy Traverse, next-gen GMC Acadia, and next-gen Buick Enclave. Now, GM Authority has learned the order in which GM will launch these three new crossovers.
According to sources familiar with the matter, GM will launch the next-generation Chevy Traverse first among the three nameplates mentioned, followed by the next-gen GMC Acadia. GM will launch the next-gen Buick Enclave as the last of three models mentioned.
As a reminder, all three models will be produced at the GM Lansing Delta Township plant in Michigan, with production of the GMC Acadia set to be moved to the Lansing Delta Township plant from the GM Spring Hill plant in Tennessee where the crossover is currently produced.
GM President Mark Reuss confirmed that GM was working on the next-gen Chevy Traverse during the recent GM Investor Day event held in November. The current-generation Traverse was launched for 2018. The next-gen model will continue to ride on the GM C1 platform, the same underpinnings as the current model.
Meanwhile, the next-gen GMC Acadia is set to grow in size in terms of exterior dimensions, returning the nameplate to its original full-size roots. For those readers who may be unaware, the GMC Acadia originally launched in 2007 as a full-size model, but shrunk an entire segment to a mid-size model with the launch of the current second-generation. However, GM President Reuss confirmed during the recent GM Investor Day event that the next-gen Acadia will indeed grow with regard to exterior dimensions. Additionally, the upcoming next-gen model will ride on a modified version of the GM C1 platform, and will feature GM Super Cruise as well.
Finally, GM President Reuss also revealed during the Investor Day event that the next-gen Buick Enclave will debut during the 2024 calendar year, showing off Buick’s latest design language and badging.
