After months of speculation, General Motors officially revealed the third-generation 2024 Chevy Traverse in July 2023, featuring a complete overhaul to the exterior, interior, and powertrain over the preceding generation. Now, GM Authority has learned from sources close to the matter that The General will soon begin accepting orders for the Bow Tie brand’s redesigned midsize three-row crossover.
General Motors will start accepting orders for the 2024 Chevy Traverse on December 14th, 2023, and dealerships now have access to the quick order tool to starting entering their orders.
As a reminder, the 2024 Chevy Traverse is all-new for the third-generation. Starting with the new exterior look, Chevy’s “High Brow” design theme is present and features a truck-inspired front fascia with dual-tier headlights to provide a more rugged look. Additional design elements include forward-leaning C-pillars and bright chrome quad exhaust tips.
Moving to the inside, the cabin is highlighted by the 17.7-inch diagonal color infotainment touchscreen, which is equipped as standard fare across the entire trim lineup. The new cockpit also features a redesigned steering wheel, as well as more interior space overall, improved ergonomics, new colorways, and higher-quality materials.
The 2024 Traverse is notable for including the Chevy Safety Assist package (RPO code PED) as standard affair, which includes the following (relevant RPO codes listed in parentheses):
- Automatic Emergency Braking (UHY)
- Front Pedestrian Braking (UKJ)
- Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning (UHX)
- Following Distance Indicator (UE4)
- Forward Collision Alert (UEU)
- IntelliBeam (TQ5)
In regard to powertrain specifications, the naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LFY gasoline engine has been replaced by the turbocharged 2.5L I4 LK0 gasoline engine, which produces a GM-rated 328 horsepower and 326 pound-feet of torque. A GM eight-speed automatic transmission handles the shifting duties, while FWD is standard and AWD is optional.
Under the skin, the 2024 Traverse rides on a revised version of the long-wheelbase variant of the GM C1 platform, which now incorporates various upgrades like the Global B digital architecture. Production will kick off in early 2024 at the GM Lansing Delta Township plant in Michigan.
