Earlier this week, GM Authority was the first to report that General Motors will offer a carryover 2024 Chevy Traverse Limited model prior to the launch of the next-generation 2024 Chevy Traverse. The launch of the carryover 2024 Chevy Traverse Limited is likely a result of the UAW labor strike and related delays. Now, GM Authority has new, exclusive details to share regarding the carryover 2024 Chevy Traverse Limited.
For those readers who may be unaware, the launch of the carryover 2024 Chevy Traverse Limited echoes a strategy that GM previously employed for the Chevy Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500, both of which offered carryover Limited models prior to the launch of the refreshed models later in the 2022 model year. The all-new, next-generation 2024 Traverse was unveiled over the summer.
Now, GM Authority has learned that the carryover 2024 Chevy Traverse Limited will offer identical build configurations and trim levels as the current 2023 model year, including LS, LT Cloth, LT Leather, RS, Premier, and High Country. Additionally, 2024 Traverse Limited models will not include any physical “Limited” badging.
GM Authority has also learned that production of the carryover 2024 Chevy Traverse Limited is expected to kick off in January of the 2024 calendar year. Dealers will be able to enter orders on November 15th, while orders will begin to be picked up by GM on November 30th.
In a statement, a Chevy spokesperson said the following about the launch of the 2024 Traverse Limited:
“The 2024 Traverse Limited will be available for a short period as we ramp up production for the all-new 2024 Traverse, which will launch in early 2024, just as we announced when we revealed it earlier this year. By offering today’s current generation as the Traverse Limited, we can better meet customer demand as we make way for the introduction of the next-generation, all-new Chevrolet Traverse.”
The decision to launch a 2024 Traverse Limited model is likely a ripple effect of the UAW labor strike, which affected production at the Lansing Delta Township plant in Michigan where the current Traverse crossover is produced.
