The 2024 Chevy Traverse gets a more muscular body in place of its old, plain exterior. The new look of the three-row mid-size SUV is part of a redesign that brings in a new generation. This should help the Chevy compete with its many rivals, which have also gotten boxier bodies and better trim levels for off-roading. The 2024 Chevy Traverse was shown with a new powertrain, a better interior, and interesting new features. We’ve picked out our seven best features and put them on a list.
One Turbo Four for Every Trim
The New Traverse Model has the following Features for every trim:
- The Chevrolet Traverse 2024 comes with a new 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine.
- The engine provides more power compared to a naturally aspirated V-6.
- GM states that the engine has 315 horsepower and 317 pound-feet of torque.
- These figures represent a 5 percent improvement in horsepower and a 51 percent improvement in torque compared to the previous 3.6-liter V-6 engine.
- The turbo four-cylinder engine is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
- The previous V-6 engine was equipped with a nine-speed transmission.
The 2024 Chevy Traverse is Designed to Look Like Z71
Until now, the Z71 off-road package was only available on body-on-frame models like mid-size Colorado and full-size Silverado pickup trucks and Chevy’s large SUVs, the Tahoe and Suburban. The Traverse is the first unibody model to get the Z71 treatment, which adds an inch of ground clearance and a wider track. The kit also comes with new 18-inch wheels with Goodyear Wrangler Territory All-Terrain tires, aluminum skid plates, red tow hooks, and a different suspension setup to handle rougher terrain. The Traverse Z71 also has a twin-clutch all-wheel-drive system that is built in.
A Chevy Traverse with 22-Inch Wheels
What stands out more than 20-inch wheels? The answer is wheels that are 22 inches in diameter. Those who choose the sporty, stylish RS trim level for their Traverse can now get the bigger rollers. We like how the 22s fill out the wheel wells of the SUV and match its strong stance. On the last generation of Traverse, the biggest set of wheels you could get was 20 inches. Oh, come on, that’s nothing.
A Shifter Mounted on a Column
Because there are so many electronic shifters now, automakers are trying to be too creative by putting rotary knobs or push-button shifters in new cars, which are hard to use and take up valuable space on the center console. Because of this, we like that Chevy went back to its roots and put an old-style shifter on the column of the new Traverse. We hope the trend spreads to other places, but we’re not holding our breath.
An Airier Interior
The new Traverse model has the same 120.9-inch wheelbase as its predecessor. This means that the dimensions of its interior aren’t too different. Chevy’s interior designers, on the other hand, worked to make the space feel bigger. To do this, they not only lowered the SUV’s beltline but also lowered the instrument panel. The result is a cabin that is easier to see out of and feels more open, especially when the Traverse has the panoramic sunroof that you can see here.
Introducing the Super Cruise
GM’s hands-free driver-assist system, Super Cruise, was first seen on the 2018 Cadillac CT6. It took a long time for it to trickle down to non-luxury brands. Even though the new Traverse isn’t the first model with a bow-tie logo to offer the tech, it’s likely a sign that more mainstream models will soon add it. With Super Cruise, drivers in the U.S. and Canada can drive hands-free on more than 400,000 miles of mapped, separated highways. The system in the Traverse can also change lanes on its own, and it works even when a trailer is being pulled behind it.
2024 Chevy Traverse Review:
Latest Technology for Safety
The Chevrolet Traverse 2024 has more cool new driver aids than Super Cruise. Chevy also added new equipment to its standard safety tech, making it even better. One is front pedestrian and biker detection, which should help stop people from driving straight through crosswalks. There is also a side bicyclist alert, automatic emergency braking for intersections, and a new feature that lets the car park itself. But that last one costs more.
