Notably, in addition to gaining nine new safety features absent from its 2023, second-generation predecessor, the third-generation 2024 Chevy Traverse takes five more features that were optional on certain trims only – Safety Alert Seat (RPO code HS1), the HD Rear Vision Camera (RPO code UVB), Adaptive Cruise Control (RPO code KSG), HD Surround Vision (RPO code UV2), and Rear Pedestrian Alert (RPO code UKK) – and makes them standard across all trim levels.
Three items on the 2023 Traverse safety feature list do not transfer over to the 2024 Chevy Traverse. However, in each of these instances, GM opted to include a similar, but better system, as part of the overall upgrade and overhaul both the exterior and interior of the 2024 Traverse gets as the first model year of the new third generation.
Front Pedestrian Braking is replaced by Front Pedestrian Braking with Bicyclist Detection (RPO code UK1), the HD Rear Vision Camera (UVB) replaces its ordinary Rear Vision Camera counterpart, and Rear Cross Traffic Braking (RPO code UFB) succeeds the Rear Cross Traffic Alert feature.
As a reminder, the 2024 Chevy Traverse will be exclusively motivated by the turbocharged 2.5L I4 LK0 gasoline engine generating 315 horsepower and 317 pound-feet of torque, a 19 percent torque increase relative to the outgoing 3.6L V6 LFY engine. The crossover offers maximum trailering of 5,000 pounds or 2,268 kilograms, identical to second-gen vehicles.
An eight-speed automatic transmission carries power to the wheels. Front-wheel drive is standard on the 2024 Traverse and all-wheel drive is available as an option.
Production is scheduled to launch in December 2023 at the GM Lansing Delta Township plant in Michigan.
