First introduced for the 2009 model year, the Chevy Traverse crossover got its second generation for the 2018 model year. As such, GM is currently developing an all-new third generation for the nameplate, set to launch with the upcoming 2024 Chevy Traverse. Now, GM Authority is detailing everything we know and expect for the next-gen 2024 Chevy Traverse with the following breakdown.
The 2024 Chevy Traverse is expected to introduce several changes to the model line, including the addition of a new off-road-oriented Z71 model, as GM Authority was the first to report. In addition, the High Country trim level will be deleted with the upcoming generational overhaul, while the RS trim will likely be replaced by a new RST (Rally Sport Truck) trim, once again per GM Authority exclusive reports.
Outside, expect an all-new exterior design that lends the 2024 Chevy Traverse a more truck-like appearance, similar to a GM Design sketch released previously. The look will incorporate dual-tier headlights that follow Chevy’s “High Brow” design language, plus forward-leaning C-pillars, large-diameter wheels, and quad exhaust tips.
The next-gen Traverse will feature an overhauled cabin with more space and improved ergonomics. New colors and materials will be offered, in particular with the Z71 trim, as will a new steering wheel. A new infotainment spec will also be on board, including a revised gauge cluster and fully digital cluster offered higher in the trim level lineup. There will be new safety features as well, plus the GM Super Cruise system.
Under the hood, the 2024 Chevy Traverse will cradle the turbocharged 2.5L I4 LK0 gasoline engine, per yet another GM Authority exclusive. Output is expected to hit at roughly 300 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque, flowing through the GM nine-speed automatic transmission to drive the front wheels as standard, or all four wheels as optional.
Under the new body, the 2024 Chevy Traverse will ride on the long-wheelbase variant of the GM C1 platform with several new improvements for the new generation. The crossover will also incorporate the Global B digital architecture.
The all-new 2024 Chevy Traverse will be offered in North America, as well as select export markets .
Production will take place at the GM Lansing Delta Township plant in Michigan. Look for the 2024 Chevy Traverse to start rolling off the line late this coming December.
