GM officially unveiled the all-new third-gen 2024 Chevy Traverse last week, showing off a wealth of updates and changes affecting the crossover’s interior layout, tech features, and powertrain. Naturally, the 2024 Chevy Traverse also introduces new exterior styling, and now, we’re getting our first look at the 2024 Chevy Traverse LT out in the real world without extensive camouflage.
This particular example is covered in Summit White paint (paint code GAZ), and is seen with some black-and-white body wrap on the hood and roof rails. Nevertheless, the new design is easy to make out and digest.
This 2024 Chevy Traverse is also an example of the LT trim level, which slots in between the base-level LS and off-road-flavored Z71 with regard to the trim level lineup. The top of the trim level lineup is occupied by the sporty RS.
The 2024 Chevy Traverse LT is notable for the chrome slats seen across the grille, a feature that’s unique to the LT. Additionally, the LT incorporates chrome surrounds for the headlights. The slats in the nose include a large upper grille bar (also in chrome) housing a golden Chevy Bow Tie badge, which combines with thin upper lighting signatures to visually enhance the crossover’s width. LED lighting is included as standard across the 2024 Chevy Traverse range.
Moving into the sides of the vehicle, we see what appears to be a set of optional 22-inch alloy wheels. The wheels present a two-tone finish with silver and black. Combined with the crisp white panels and complementary black trim, this color combo helps to show off the new design. To note, the roof rails are included as standard on LT trims, unlike the base-model LS.
Finally, the rear end shows off a small roof spoiler that neatly sandwiches the horizontally oriented taillights. The taillight housings wrap around into the rear quarter panels, while a set of quad exhaust tips are mounted under the rear bumper.
As a reminder, the 2024 Chevy Traverse cradles the turbocharged 2.5L I4 LK0 gasoline engine, which is rated at 315 horsepower and 317 pound-feet of torque. Production takes place at the GM Lansing Delta Township plant in Michigan, while under the skin, you’ll find the long-wheelbase variant of the GM C1 platform.
