What kind of vehicle is the 2024 Chevrolet Traverse? What does it compare to?

The redesigned 2024 Chevrolet Traverse is a three-row crossover SUV sized like the Kia Telluride, Honda Pilot, and new Toyota Grand Highlander.

Is the 2024 Chevrolet Traverse a good SUV?

We won’t know it until we drive it late this year, but the family hauler sports a bolder look, improved standard safety and convenience features, and a new turbo-4 powertrain that’s more potent than the outgoing V-6. These updates portend an improvement over the 2023 Traverse and its TCC Rating of 6.2 out of 10. (Read more about how we rate cars.)

What’s new for the 2024 Chevrolet Traverse?

Much is new for the redesigned Traverse, ranging from standout styling to a new turbo-4 powertrain.

The biggest change arrives downstream from Chevy’s pickup trucks and full-size SUVs in the off-road Z71 trim. New to Traverse, it accentuates the SUV’s truck-like stance, with its vertical, broad grille cinched by a belt holding the Chevy bowtie and crowned by slim LED running lights under a pronounced hood. Headlights and available fog lights sit below the bowtie belt, and down low a lower grille stretches over an air dam. The Z71 stamps its unique lower grille with red recovery hooks, an aluminum skid plate, and a better approach angle.

Down the sides bulging fenders and sculpted rocker panels add more visual interest than the plain sides of its predecessor, but the rear end of the greenhouse marks the clearest distinction for the 2024 model. Instead of body-color C-pillars, the rear quarter windows flare out behind the rear doors and wrap around the rear end, as if it’s wearing big performance sunglasses in reverse. RS trims black out 22-inch wheels and other trim elements, while Z71 trims wrap all-terrain tires around 18-inch wheels. The Z71 has one inch more of ground clearance and a wider track, but Chevy did not disclose specs of the base model.

Inside, a lower dash accentuates the openness of the cabin. A curved wall of screens visually cocoons the driver, and a larger 17.7-inch touchscreen sits over thin horizontal vents and climate buttons and dials. A new console design opens up more space for side-by-side cupholders and an available wireless smartphone charger. That space comes from Chevy migrating a new electronic gear shifter from the console to a stalk on the steering column.

That stalk engages the gears of a new 8-speed automatic transmission shuttling power to the front wheels from a new turbocharged 2.5-liter inline-4. We haven’t heard much about this engine, except that it’s derivative of the 2.7-liter turbo-4 used in the Chevy Colorado mid-size pickup. In the 2024 Traverse, it makes 315 hp and 317 lb-ft of torque. The outgoing V-6 in the 2023 Traverse made 310 hp and 266 lb-ft, but the tow rating of 5,000 pounds remains the same. The Z71 comes standard with the trailering package, and a distinct twin-clutch all-wheel-drive system, as well as dampers with more rebound control, Chevy says.

While there’s much we don’t know about the new engine, it should improve on the outgoing Traverse’s EPA rating of 18 mpg city, 27 highway, 21 combined, or 20 mpg combined with AWD.

Historically, the Traverse relied on interior space and seating flexibility to stand out from the competition. Chevy hasn’t released specs nor has it made the redesigned 2024 Traverse available to the motoring press yet, but it sounds as if those traits will carry over. Chevy boasts a max cargo capacity of 97.6 cubic feet with both the second and third rows folded flat. Base LS trims come with two rear bench seats to sit three across for up to eight passengers total, whereas the other trims swap in second-row captain’s chairs for seven passengers. The tilt-and-slide design of the second-row seats let users slide the seat forward to access the third row without having to remove a child safety seat latched into the second row. The LT trim can be had with the seven- or eight-seat configuration.

Chevy equips every 2024 Traverse with automatic emergency braking with pedestrian and cyclist detection, active lane control, and automatic high-beam headlights. The brand’s Buckle to Drive feature that requires the driver and front passenger to be buckled before engaging gears is now complemented by a rear seat belt reminder for both second- and third-row passengers. Options range from blind-spot monitors and a surround-view camera system to GM’s excellent Super Cruise hands-free highway driving system.

How much does the 2024 Chevrolet Traverse cost?

Pricing hasn’t been announced on LS, LT, the new Z71, and top RS trims, but expect it to cost between $40,000 and $55,000. The Premier and High Country trims available on the 2023 model have not been announced for 2024.

In addition to the standard driver-assist features mentioned above, the 2024 Chevrolet Traverse comes well equipped with the latest tech and convenience features, including a standard 17.7-inch touchscreen infotainment system, six USB ports, and an 11.0-inch digital instrument cluster. Options include heated seats covered in leather upholstery, a heated steering wheel, a power-folding third row, a hands-free power tailgate, a panoramic sunroof, and more.

A full feature list and corresponding prices will be announced closer to the early 2024 sale date.
