Just one model year removed from a mid-cycle refresh, the 2023 Chevy Traverse represents the sixth model year of the Bow Tie brand’s second-gen full-size crossover, and introduces a few updates over the preceding model year. Now, the 2023 Traverse is no longer available to be ordered in three paint colors.
The following paint colors are no longer offered on the 2023 Traverse (relevant color code in parenthesis):
- Silver Sage Metallic (G6N) – Built out following the week of July 31st, 2023.
- Northsky Blue Metallic (GA0) – Built out following the week of August 14th, 2023.
- Black Cherry Metallic (GLR) – Built out following the week of August 28th, 2023.
It’s worth noting that these three colors will possibly be retired following the 2023 model year.
For those who may be unaware, the Chevy Traverse is expected to feature an all-new generation for the upcoming 2024 model year, and will be the first of three next-gen, full-size crossovers to be released. More specifically, the next-gen GMC Acadia will launch afterwards, while the next-gen Buick Enclave is set to launch one model year later.
All three upcoming crossovers will be manufactured at the GM Lansing Delta Township plant, meaning that production of the Acadia will be moved from the GM Spring Hill plant in Tennessee to the Lansing Delta Township facility.
All three are expected to ride on an updated version of the GM C1 platform, known internally as C1-2.
Under the hood, the current 2023 Chevy Traverse is offered with a single drivetrain configuration, which includes the naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LFY gasoline engine, rated at 310 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque, mated to the GM nine-speed automatic transmission.
As for structure, the Traverse rides on the long-wheelbase variant of the GM C1 platform, while production takes place at the GM Lansing Delta Township plant in Michigan.
