- What: an all-new full-size crossover representing the third generation of the Traverse nameplate
- When: a launch in calendar year 2024 as a 2025 model year vehicle
- Why: an all-new Traverse will continue to strengthen Chevy’s position in the full-size crossover segment
- Where: sold in all current markets where Chevrolet sells the Traverse, including the United States, Canada, Mexico, select south American markets, and the Middle East
Following are our expectations of the future Chevrolet Traverse:
- Based either on the GM VSS-F platform/vehicle set
- Introduce the evolved Chevrolet design language, including headlights and taillights
- Introduce an improved interior, with increased levels of refinement, luxury, and convenience
- Include the GM Super Cruise autonomous driving technology
- Introduce a plug-in hybrid/PHEV variant or a pure battery electric model
- Introduce more “premium” features to distinguish it from Chevy’s new midsize crossover (expected to be the future Chevy Blazer)
We expect the upcoming future Chevrolet Traverse to continue being available as a full-size luxury crossover with four doors and three rows of seating.
We expect the starting price of the next Chevy Traverse to rise to the $35,000 range in order to create more space between it and the rumored Blazer.
We expect it to ride on the GM VSS-F platform/vehicle set shared with other front-drive GM vehicles and crossovers.
We expect the next Chevrolet Traverse to feature the following engine choices:
- New turbo 2.0L I-4 engine with automatic engine stop/start functionality to replace the GM 2.0L Turbo LTG (gasoline)
- 3.6L V-6 LGX with automatic engine stop/start functionality as an step up from the new 2.0L Turbo (gasoline)
- Possibly a twin-Turbo 3.0L V-6 LGW (gasoline) in a performance variant
- New turbo-diesel engine for select markets (diesel)
- Possibly an electric plug-in hybrid/PHEV (gasoline/electric)
- Possibly a pure battery-electric variant
We expect that the next Traverse will be offered with the new GM 9-speed automatic transmission. The potential plug-in hybrid and electric models would have their own powertrain.
It is currently unclear where GM will produce the next-generation Chevy Traverse. The first-generation and second-generation models are assembled by GM USA at the GM Lansing Delta Township factory in Michigan.
The future Chevy Traverse will compete with the following vehicles:
- Dodge Durango
- Mazda CX-9
- Ford Explorer
- GM’s own expected Buick Enclave
- Toyota Highlander
- Honda Pilot
- Nissan Pathfinder
- Volkswagen Atlas
- Dodge Durango
