A completely redesigned 2024 Chevrolet Traverse has been unveiled, likely the last new gasoline powered mid-size SUV from the brand. Still based on the Epsilon front-wheel drive architecture, the three-row SUV more truck-like styling outside, more tech inside, and an all-new powertrain.

Chevrolet wanted it to be more rugged and relatable to the imagery of their trucks and in its sharp muscular style that has arguably been achieved. In that way a new Z71 off-road trim grade has been added that bolsters its overlanding cred among a sea of competitors adding similar trim grades.

The Traverse Z71 not only looks the part of the more capable off-roader but backs it up with some mechanical upgrades like a 1-inch increase in ground clearance and wider track. All-terrain tires are mounted to 18-inch wheels and a unique front fascia enables a better approach angle.

Underneath is an aluminum skid plate and yes you can see the obligatory red tow hooks. Suspension is specially tuned for off-roading and the Z71 features a unique variation of the Traverse’s twin-clutch all-wheel drive system with more robust capabilities and operation modes.

Other trims familiar from before continue including LS, LT and the more sporting RS which all feature their own personalities in the styling treatments inside and out.

All trim grades lose the venerable 3.6-liter V6 once and for all, making way for an all-new LK0 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. The new powertrain offers up 315 horsepower and 317 pound-feet torque which is indeed more power than the old V6. For those counting, the new 2024 Chevrolet Traverse can tow up to 5,000 pounds when properly optioned.

The interior makeover brings a new style and look along with a raft of new standard technologies to bring the Traverse up to date with most of its rivals. The look might be familiar if you have been in a few new Chevys of late, with dual digital screens laid out in cockpit form.

Center stage and standard is one of the largest screens in class, a 17.7-inch-diagonal infotainment touchscreen. Even in base models it will be well featured with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto along with several other expected standards.

Ahead of the driver is an 11-inch digital instrument cluster screen fully customizable and the gear selector you will note is actually an electronic toggle mounted to the steering column – something different from GM.

This Chevrolet says gives more space to the center console which features a pass-through design and better layout for switches and cup holders.

With 98 cubic-feet of cargo space, we’re told it will be best-in-class. There are multiple seating configurations available from 7 passengers on most trim grades and up to 8-passengers with base model LS trim grade.

The redesigned 2024 Chevrolet Traverse arrives at dealerships in the first quarter of 2024 and will be built at GM’s Lansing Delta Township production plant in Michigan. Pricing, specifications and EPA mpg will be along closer to its on sale date.
