Production of the next-generation 2024 Chevy Traverse is currently scheduled to kick off in December 2023 at the GM Lansing Delta Township plant in Michigan. For now, not many details are known about the upcoming next-gen Traverse. However, upon closer inspection of GM Authority spy shots, it appears as though the 2024 Traverse may sport a similar exhaust tip design to that of the C8 Corvette Stingray.
Featuring a quad-tip design – with two exhaust tips positioned on either side of the lower valence – it appears as though this setup may be equipped as standard fare across the 2024 Traverse lineup. This come development comes from GM Authority spy photographs that capture prototype Traverse units in both LT and Activ trim levels sporting a Corvette Stingray-esque exhaust tip setup.
As seen in the two photos above, both the C8 Corvette Stingray and prototype Traverse feature four rectangular exhaust tips oriented in similar positions. What do you think, dear reader? Do you think General Motors is drawing inspiration from the Vette for next-gen Traverse styling cues? Let us know in the comments below!
As far as other updates coming for the 2024 Chevy Traverse, the Bow Tie brand’s full-size crossover will be the first of three next-gen, full-size crossovers to be released, with the next-gen GMC Acadia set to launch soon afterwards, and the next-gen Buick Enclave set to launch one model year later. All three will be manufactured at the GM Lansing Delta Township plant, as production of the GMC Acadia will be moved from the GM Spring Hill plant in Tennessee to the Lansing Delta Township facility.
All three full-size crossovers are expected to ride on an updated version of the GM C1 platform known as C1-2.
In regard to the current 2023 Traverse, the Bow Tie crossover is powered by the naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LFY gasoline engine, rated at 310 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque, and puts the power to the ground via the GM nine-speed automatic transmission. It’s possible that the 2024 Traverse could inherit this powertrain, however, the turbocharged 2.7L I4 L3B gasoline engine could also be introduced as well.
