The 2024 Chevrolet Traverse introduces the third generation of the Bow Tie’s large, three-row crossover, bringing a full exterior and interior overhaul, which The General revealed in mid-July 2023. Having shown you the 2024 Traverse LT in Black equipped with the Midnight Edition package, a 2024 Traverse Z71 in Red, and a Traverse LS Sport Edition in white, we’re now bringing you the 2024 Traverse LT Sport Edition in today’s GM Authority Live Photo Gallery.
This particular Traverse is painted in Summit White (paint code GAZ) and is equipped with the Sport Edition package. The Sport Edition package is a package that adds black exterior accents, analogous to the Midnight Edition. What sets the two packages apart is that the Midnight Edition is available exclusively with black exterior paint, while the Sport Edition is available in colors other than Black.
Starting with the front end of the 2024 Chevrolet Traverse LT, styling elements from the Chevy “Highbrow” theme are clearly visible in the dual-tier headlight treatment and the overall front fascia design. Sporting the “tougher”-looking, truck-inspired design found throughout the new Traverse trim lineup, this particular LT has the Black grille that’s unique to the Sport Edition (as well as the aforementioned Midnight Edition).
The side profile reveals more content from the Sport Edition package. The roof rails mark this is an LT trim vehicle, since they are not included on the base LS trim. Sport package features include the 20-inch High Gloss Black painted aluminum wheels (RPO code SLV) the Traverse is riding on here. The black rims are wrapped in 255/55R20 all-season blackwall tires (RPO code Q3N).
The side profile also shows the “shark fin” C-pillar treatment, while the rear end clearly shows the new taillights.
The Sport Edition package also includes Black Bow Tie badges, a Black nameplate badge and Black AWD badges on all-wheel drive models, and high gloss Black door upper and low gloss Black belt moldings (RPO code BSW). Being a pre-production unit, this particular model is missing the nameplate and AWD badging at the rear, while the Chevy Bow Tie logo has also not been installed.
A set of quad polished exhaust tips inset into the rear bumper are found across the whole 2024 Chevrolet Traverse trim lineup, including the LT trim.
The changes to the third-gen 2024 Chevrolet Traverse are more than skin-deep, extending to a new powerplant cradled under the hood. The turbocharged 2.5L I4 LK0 gasoline engine introduced for the third generation provides 328 horsepower and 326 pound-feet of torque per GM estimates.
An eight-speed automatic transmission connects this engine to the drivetrain, which has a FWD standard configuration with optionally available AWD.
