There’s an all-new generation for the Chevy Traverse crossover set to debut for the 2024 model year, with updates expected to include a new engine, an overhauled interior, and a new trim level lineup, as well as a redesigned exterior. To this lattermost point, the 2024 Chevy Traverse will introduce a new profile that incorporates restyled rear pillars. Now, we’re taking a closer look at these pillars and comparing them to recently released concept images.
For those readers who may have missed it, the GM Design social media team recently released a concept sketch from GM Creative Designer Jacky Zhan that shows off a rear three-quarters view of some unnamed Chevy utility model. Looking more closely at the concept’s rear pillar, we can’t help but notice a striking resemblance to recent spy shots of the all-new 2024 Chevy Traverse.
Placed side by side, the resemblance between the concept image and the prototype 2024 Chevy Traverse is quite clear. Both incorporate a similar fin-like shape for the C-pillar, rising up to a narrow section around the roof that gives the rearmost glass a distinct obtuse trapezoidal shape. Also of note are the roof rails, as well as a roof-mounted spoiler that protrudes off the top of the hatch.
Although the 2024 Chevy Traverse will be roughly same size as the current model, the next-gen crossover will be more truck-like in its execution and aesthetic. Per a GM Authority exclusive, the new 2024 Chevy Traverse will also offer a new Z71 trim level, underlining its latest rough-and-ready attitude. The RS and High Country trim levels are expected to be deleted from the lineup with the next-gen model.
Under the hood, the 2024 Chevy Traverse will feature the new turbocharged 2.5L I4 LK0 gasoline engine. Inside the cabin, expect to find new digital screens, including a large digital gauge cluster behind the steering wheel and a large touchscreen on the dash.
