The all-new 2024 Chevy Traverse, which debuts the crossover’s third generation with its instantly recognizable truck-inspired front fascia and dual-tier headlights from Chevy’s “High Brow” design cue, will have a smaller trim level lineup in Canada than in the United States.
The Canadian lineup for the 2024 Chevy Traverse will consist of three trim levels in all, the LT, Z71 and RS trims, whereas the new Traverse will be available in LS, LT, Z71 and RS trim levels in the USA.
The new lineup is reduced even more compared to the outgoing generation, which was available in the LS, LT Cloth, True North, RS, Premier and High Country variants. While the Canadian version of the 2024 Chevy Traverse will be identical to the U.S. version in most of its details, it will get several features that are standard only in Canada:
- Standard AWD across the entire trim lineup
- Standard heated second-row outboard seats
- Standard heated steering wheel
- Standard heated outside mirrors
As a reminder, a single powerplant is used to motivate the various trim levels of the 2024 Chevy Traverse, the turbocharged 2.5L I4 LK0 gasoline engine developing a GM-rated 328 horsepower and 326 pound-feet of torque. This replaces the naturally aspirated 3.6L V6 LFY gasoline engine cradled by the second-gen Traverse. The GM eight-speed automatic transmission provides cog swaps.
Pricing for the 2024 Chevy Traverse differs from the price of the U.S. variant, particularly with one less trim level in the lineup. The 2023 Traverse and 2024 Traverse Limited models currently range in price from $44,348 to $64,448 in Canada, which includes a $1,995 destination freight charge or DFC. Elimination of the LS trim means the 2024 Traverse is expected to start at just over $50,000 CAD.
Under the body panels, the 2024 Traverse is underpinned by a revised version of the long-wheelbase variant of the GM C1 platform The platform now incorporates the Global B digital architecture which, among other uses, will support the GM Super Cruise semi-autonomous driving system, available on most trim levels.
Production of the third-gen crossover was originally expected to start in December 2023, but was postponed until February 12th, 2024. The vehicle will roll off the assembly line at the GM Lansing Delta Township plant in Michigan.
