Redesigned from the ground up, the all-new 2024 Chevrolet Traverse strengthens Chevrolet’s position in the midsize SUV segment.

Offering bold design with more SUV-like proportions, key safety features with families in mind, combined with greater horsepower and torque from an all-new engine. The new Traverse is positioned to succeed in its highly competitive segment and grow its customer base thanks to the new off-road capable Z71 model.

“Our new Traverse is designed and engineered to act and look more like an SUV,” said Scott Bell, Vice President, Chevrolet. “Led by the all-new Z71, the 2024 Traverse builds on the success of its predecessor and will undoubtedly enable us to be in more customer driveways.”

Four distinct trims—LS, LT, Z71 and RS—offer unique design and greater content choices, with new and enhanced safety features for the first time on Traverse and technologies across the lineup.

All models are powered by an all-new 2.5L turbocharged engine that delivers a GM-estimated 315 horsepower and GM-estimated 317 lb.-ft. of torque, delivering more power than the previous models, including a 19% increase in torque. It is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive is standard and the Z71 features an off-road-capable twin-clutch AWD system. When properly equipped on LT and above, the new Traverse has a max trailering rating of up to 5,000 pounds (2,268 kg).

All-new Traverse Z71

The Traverse Z71 answers the call of experience-seeking adventurers who are bringing the family and their gear along for the journey, with a roster of off-road-capable features that include as standard:

  • More than one-inch increased ground clearance coupled with increased track width for added stability, handling and capability
  • All-terrain tires bring increased capability coupled with 18-inch wheels designed exclusively for Z71
  • Unique front fascia purposely designed for improved approach angle, with an aluminum skid plate and signature Z71 red tow hooks
  • Twin-clutch AWD system designed to optimize traction and handling in off-road driving conditions
  • Unique dampers with hydraulic rebound control to improve off-road-capability
  • Specific Terrain Mode within the driver-selectable drive modes
  • Hill Descent Control
  • Standard trailering package

Features like Buckle to Drive and Rear Seat Belt Reminder in the Traverse are strong reminders for drivers and their passengers to buckle every time they are in the vehicle.

Available features include Super Cruise hands-free driver assistance technology, including trailering and automatic lane change capabilities, Enhanced Automatic Parking Assist and Driver Attention Assist.

Bold, rugged design

Framed by an all-new, more purposeful silhouette, the styling of the redesigned Traverse balances crossover- and truck-inspired design elements to give the vehicle a rugged, ready-for-anything presence.

A planted stance, with wheels pushed to the corners and strong-appearing shoulders, adds to the commanding presence.

“The bold exterior of the all-new Traverse helps redefine its role and capability for customers,” said Phil Zak, Executive Design Director, Global Chevrolet. “It is as versatile as ever, but with an increased focus on capability that reflects the spirit of its owners.”

Each trim has its personality, achieved with unique trim and accents and additional details such as:

Airy, tech-forward passenger space

The new Traverse’s interior is all about the driver experience. It picks up the technology-forward ethos of other recently introduced Chevrolet models, with clean, sweeping lines and a lower beltline that conveys a more spacious feel. The instrument panel is also lower than the previous model, which enhances outward visibility and the feeling of airiness.

Display screens are the centrepiece of the cabin, starting with the standard 17.7-inch-diagonal infotainment screen. It’s more than two times larger than the largest available screen in the previous model and is the gateway to the Traverse’s connectivity. Wireless phone charging and Wi-Fi Hotspot are also available, and six USB ports are standard.

Additional interior details include:

  • Larger, 11-inch-diagonal configurable driver information centre
  • A column-mounted electronic transmission shifter that opens up more storage and useable space between the driver and front passenger
  • A pass-through console design that enables even more storage capability. It is easily accessible, while also tucked away, for a clean, organized appearance
  • Convenient side-by-side cup holders for the driver and front passenger
  • Standard for Canada heated front and second-row outboard seats
  • Standard for Canada heated steering wheel and outside mirrors
  • Premium Evotex seating surfaces available on LT and Z71

  • Seven-passenger seating is standard on LT, Z71, and RS, with the eight-passenger configuration available on LT
  • Seven-passenger configurations include second-row captain’s chairs with SmartSlide, which eases access to the third row, even when a child seat is installed
