After the recent refresh, it is expected that the current generation of Chevy’s biggest crossover will remain in production for some more time. From what we know so far, the 2024 Chevy Traverse will be a typical carryover model, while a full redesign may come already a year after. In any case, we expect to see familiar design and features in this case, though there is always room for minor updates, such as new color options or additions to the list of standard equipment.
On the other hand, the overall layout will remain the same. We are about to see a familiar design, which still has a lot of great things to offer. We like Traverse because of its comfortable and spacious cabin. Also, the ride is smooth and comfortable, while the infotainment system is easy to use. Finally, the V6 engine is capable and refined. When it comes to drawbacks, the biggest complaint goes to the subpar interior quality and the lack of athleticism.
As there are no significant changes to come, we presume that the 2024 Chevy Traverse will hit the market sometime in the last quarter of 2023.
2024 Chevy Traverse Design
As we’ve just mentioned, the 2024 Chevy Traverse should come without bigger changes. We count on the same design, which was updated just recently. The 2022 refresh brought a lot of new things, starting from the new styling, which utilizes narrower and sharper headlights, a new grille design, new bumpers etc. So, the best we could see from the next year’s model are minor updates, such as new color options.
Mechanically, things will certainly remain the same, as the current model hasn’t changed since the 2018 redesign. This SUV rides on a familiar C1 platform and offers a pretty smooth and comfortable ride. On the other hand, it isn’t particularly engaging to drive and you can easily tell that it’s not as athletic as rivals like Mazda CX-9 or even VW Atlas.
The same thing is with interior design. We are about to see a familiar layout, which has some pretty good things to offer, but comes with drawbacks as well. The latter particularly refers to the interior quality, as you can see that there are many areas that are wrapped with hard plastics and other cheap materials. Also, the build quality isn’t at the level you would expect in this class.
However, the Traverse compensates for all this with the tremendous amount of space. This crossover features nearly 121 inches in wheelbase, so it’s no wonder that all three rows are adult-friendly. The cargo area is also pretty spacious and offers around 23 cubic feet behind the third-row seats, 57.8 cubic feet of space behind the second row and 98.2 cubic feet of the total cargo volume.
Of course, additions to the list of standard and available equipment are always possible but we have no doubt that most things are about to remain the same for the next year. Therefore, all models should come standard with goodies like tri-zone climate control, keyless entry, push-button start, a 7-inch touch screen, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, satellite radio, a six-speaker stereo, Bluetooth, six USB ports, and a Wi-Fi hot spot. Among upgrades, you can find goodies like an 8-inch touch screen, navigation, wireless device charging, a 10-speaker stereo, remote start, a panoramic sunroof, and a 120-volt household-style power outlet.
The same is with safety features. So, base models should come standard with goodies like a rearview camera, forward collision warning, pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, automatic high beams, rear-seat alert etc.
2024 Chevy Traverse Engines
Things under the hood won’t change either. We are about to see a familiar 3.6-liter V6 engine, which puts out around 310 horsepower. That’s plenty enough for strong performance in every situation. Also, the engine comes in pair with a 9-speed automatic transmission, which also does a pretty decent job.
Base models come with front-wheel drive, while you can also opt for the AWD version. In both cases, you may count on pretty decent fuel economy, which goes up to 18 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway, which is about average for the segment. When properly equipped, this crossover can tow up to 5.000 pounds.
2024 Chevy Traverse Release Date and Price
We expect to see the 2024 Chevy Traverse sometime in the last quarter of the year, with the starting price of around 35.000 dollars.
