GM unveiled the 2024 Chevy Traverse last month, debuting an all-new third generation for the crossover. As expected, the 2024 Chevy Traverse introduces a wealth of updates and changes compared to the preceding 2023 model year, but critically, GM has yet to unveil a new Premier trim level for the third-gen. Nevertheless, we still expect a third-gen Chevy Traverse Premier to launch in the near future.
At present, the 2024 Chevy Traverse lineup includes the LS, LT, Z71, and RS. As GM Authority was the first to report, the High Country trim level offered as the range-topping trim for the second-generation Traverse is not offered for the third-gen Traverse.
Even so, there is still a market for a fully loaded third-gen Chevy Traverse with chrome trim. A third-generation Chevy Traverse Premier trim level could debut later in the 2024 model year, or possibly during the 2025 model year.
Even though the High Country trim level was deleted with the launch of the third-gen Traverse, we went ahead and rendered what such a thing might look like, just for fun. Our exclusive third-gen Chevy Traverse High Country rendering includes the more truck-like appearance of the latest model, as well as a selection of exterior details to give it a more premium look.

As for the production-spec 2024 Chevy Traverse, exterior highlights include a dual-tier headlight configuration, new wheel designs, and dual exhaust. The cabin space was completely overhauled as well, and now features a 17.7-inch diagonal color infotainment screen as standard across the lineup. Seating for up to eight passengers is offered, depending on the configuration, while GM Super Cruise is now available, with the Chevy Safety Assist suite included as standard.
As for the powertrain spec, the 2024 Chevy Traverse features the turbocharged 2.5L I4 LK0 gasoline engine, rated at a GM-estimated 315 horsepower and 317 pound-feet of torque. The GM C1 platform provides the underpinnings, while production takes place at the GM Lansing Delta Township plant in Michigan.
