While everyone was expecting a facelift for the next year, it looks like we won’t see so many changes for the next year. This refresh has been delayed for the 2022 model year, which means that the next year won’t bring some significant changes. Still, some novelties will come, and that particularly refers to the new 2021 Chevrolet Traverse Redline Edition, which will be an optional package characterized by loads of interesting details, mostly visual ones.
From what we know so far, the 2021 Chevrolet Traverse Redline Edition will come with several interesting novelties and all of them will be pretty exclusive. On the other side, the rest of the lineup is about to carry on in the same way, while the facelift has been scheduled for the next year. Therefore, expect to see the next-year models in a typical time of year, sometime in the last quarter.
2021 Chevrolet Traverse Redline Edition Features
Compared to the rest of the lineup, the 2021 Chevrolet Traverse Redline Edition will be characterized by loads of exclusive features. Most of them are new styling details and most of them are bring loads of red and black accents. When it comes to the styling, one of the first things you will notice are new 20-inch wheels, which are black and come with nice red accents. Furthermore, you may count on loads of blacked details. Some of the highlights are things like roof rails, side mirror caps, door handles etc. Allegedly, the grille will also be black and should come with a completely new pattern. Also, you may count on a 2-pannel sunroof and trailering package. A couple of exclusive interior details are about to come as well but we are still waiting to hear something from the officials.
2021 Chevrolet Traverse Redline Edition Engine
Despite the more attractive look, the 2021 Chevrolet Traverse Redline Edition won’t be any different in terms of performances. You may count on the same chassis setup, as well as on the same engine under the hood. Of course, we are talking about the well-known V6, which is the online engine in the offer, as the turbo-four has been discontinued last year.
This V6 provides more than a decent amount of power, as you may count on respectable 310 horses. Acceleration and overall performances are solid, while the 9-speed automatic transmission does the job pretty well as well. The power is sent to front wheels, while AWD models are also available.
When it comes to fuel economy, you may count on about 18 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway, which are okay ratings for the class. Models with all-wheel drive are slightly thirstier and return around 17 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway.
2021 Chevrolet Traverse Exterior and Interior
The rest of the lineup is about to carry on in the same way. The facelift has been rescheduled for the 2022 model year. So, the 2021 Chevrolet Traverse will certainly carry on with the same styling, while the mechanical aspect of the SUV definitely won’t change. This SUV rides on a stretched version of a familiar C1 architecture. We are talking about one of the biggest models in the class, which offers impressive amounts of legroom and cargo space.
The amount of legroom and cargo space are certainly some of the strongest points of this crossover. Unlike most rivals that feel very tight in the third row, this one accommodates adults in all rows. Also, the cargo area is one of the biggest in class. You may count on about 23 cubic feet behind the third row, while the overall cargo volume goes up to 98.2 cubic feet. Those are really impressive ratings for the segment.
The ride quality is very good, though materials on the inside could be better. This is where Traverse is a typical Chevrolet, so you can notice lots of odd aesthetical solutions and color schemes. We hope this aspect will improve with the 2022 update.
On the other side, there are no complaints about the list of standard and optional features, at least when it comes to tech goodies. The 2021 Chevrolet Traverse might get some additions, but most of the things are about to remain the same. Therefore, base models will come standard with goodies like a 7-inch touch screen, six USB ports, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hot spot, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. In higher trim levels, you may also count on things like satellite radio, rear-seat entertainment system, wireless device charging, an 8-inch touch screen, navigation, a 10-speaker Bose audio system and more.
Release Date and Price
We expect to see all Traverse models sometime later in the year. When it comes to the price, we still don’t know how much 2021 Chevrolet Traverse Redline Edition will cost. On the other side, base models should go around 30.000 dollars.
