As GM Authority has been covering for quite some time now, the next-gen 2024 Chevy Traverse is set to launch in the U.S. by the end of the 2023 calendar year. Now, General Motors has finally given an official reveal date for the Bow Tie brand’s full-size crossover.
In a series of posts to social media, The General has announced that something new will officially debut on July 17th, 2023, which likely the 2024 Chevy Traverse. Interestingly, the three teaser Instagram reels that GM posted spell out TTO, which could mean Time To Own.
As a reminder, the next-gen Traverse is expected to be thoroughly overhauled as compared to the preceding generation. Starting with the model lineup, GM Authority was the first to report that an off-road-focused Z71 variant will be introduced, while the High Country trim will be no longer available. One of the teaser images shows the vehicle wearing Goodyear Wrangler tires, hinting at the upcoming Traverse Z71.
On the outside, the 2024 Traverse is expected to boast a fresh exterior design that will feature dual-tier headlights, along with forward-leaning C-pillars, large-diameter wheels, and quad exhaust tips.
In regard to the interior, the entire cabin will be overhauled with increased space and better ergonomics. New colorways and materials will be on offer, as well as a new steering wheel. A new infotainment setup will be introduced, along with a suite of new safety features, plus GM Super Cruise.
Under the hood, the 2024 Chevy Traverse will be powered by the turbocharged 2.5L I4 LK0 gasoline engine, with an output expected to be roughly 300 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. Output will be routed to the ground via the GM nine-speed automatic transmission, while FWD will be standard and AWD will be optional.
As for structure, the all-new Traverse will ride on an updated version of the long-wheelbase variant of the GM C1 platform. In addition, the next-gen crossover will also feature the Global B digital architecture. Production will take place at the GM Lansing Delta Township plant in Michigan in late December 2023.
