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 Mosaic Black Metallic with the Midnight Edition package, as well as a 2024 Traverse LT Sport Edition in Summit White and a 2024 Traverse LS Sport Edition, we’re now bringing you the 2024 Traverse LT in Mosaic Black Metallic (paint code GB8) in today’s GM Authority Live Photo Gallery (you won’t see these photos anywhere else).
The Z71 trim is a new off-road variant for the 2024 Chevrolet Traverse. Highlighted by more rugged styling cues, it’s based around the mid-range LT trim.
At the front, we see the new dual-tier headlight treatment known as the Chevy Highbrow theme. The high Gloss Black grille (RPO code 5A0) seen here is exclusive to the Z71, complemented by a black Chevy Bow Tie badge. The front fascia of the Traverse Z71 is unique, as it was purposely designed for an improved approach angle. An aluminum skid plate and signature Z71 red tow hooks round out the front fascia.
The profile reveals more Z71-exclusive content, including a set of Black mirror gaps, Gloss Black roof rails (RPO code V5R), plus high gloss Black door upper and low gloss Black belt moldings (RPO code BSW). The “shark fin” C-pillar is an element used on all 2024 Chevrolet Traverse trims, but the 18-inch High Gloss Black painted machined-face wheels (RPO code PXW) are exclusive to the Traverse Z71. The rollers are wrapped in 265/65R18SL all-terrain tires (RPO code XCK).
At the rear, we can see the all-new taillights, which are integrated with a black horizontal aesthetic across the tailgate. The Z71’s rear is finished off by quad squared-off exhaust tips inset into the rear bumper, with split exhaust leading to dual outlets on either side.
As a reminder, the 2024 Chevy Traverse is a deep reskinning of the outgoing, second-generation Traverse, keeping the bones but reworking nearly everything else. In addition to a complete overhaul of the exterior and interior, the third-gen Traverse adopts the new Global B electronic architecture.
The crossover also gets a new powerplant in the form of the turbocharged 2.5L I4 LK0 gasoline engine, developing a GM-rated 328 horsepower and 326 pound-feet of torque, linked to a GM eight-speed automatic transmission for cog swaps and a choice of standard FWD or optional AWD. The Z71 trim specifically is available in all-wheel-drive only.
