2021 Chevrolet Traverse
The Chevrolet Traverse was originally expected to be refreshed for the 2021 model year, however, due to complications caused by the Coronavirus pandemic, the changes were pushed into the 2022 model year (see more 2022 Chevrolet Traverse info).
As such, the 2021 Chevrolet Traverse, which marks the fourth model year of the second-generation model, sees very few changes from the 2020 model year.
