The realm of midsize SUVs is abuzz with excitement as Chevrolet unveils the next-generation 2024 Chevrolet Traverse. This SUV has undergone a total metamorphosis, built with an emphasis on safety, technology, and the long-awaited Z71 off-road capability.
Redefining Versatility and Safety
With a bold redesign and more truck-like proportions, the 2024 Chevrolet Traverse has been molded to perfection for the modern family, balancing power, safety, and style in its structure. The all-new engine comes with an impressive increase in horsepower and torque, ensuring a drive that is both smooth and powerful. Chevrolet’s vice president, Scott Bell, hints that the 2024 Traverse is engineered to resemble a full-fledged SUV, laying the groundwork for the brand to extend its customer base.
The Traverse range will offer four distinct trims: LS, LT, Z71, and RS. Each is equipped with innovative safety features and technologies that cater to families’ needs. The redesigned SUV also boasts a powerful 2.5L turbocharged engine capable of delivering a GM-estimated 315 horsepower and GM-estimated 317 lb-ft of torque. This power, paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission and an optional all-wheel-drive system, guarantees an exceptional driving experience.
The Z71 Off-Road Model – A Class of Its Own
The new Traverse Z71 is perfect for adventurers with families who require off-road capabilities. With over 1-inch increased ground clearance and all-terrain tires, the Z71 is ready to tackle any challenge. The model also includes a twin-clutch AWD system, unique dampers with hydraulic rebound control, and Hill Descent Control, making it the ideal companion for off-road adventures. Additionally, the Z71 features a standard trailering package, expanding its functionality beyond the average SUV.
Unparalleled Safety Features
The 2024 Chevrolet Traverse is not just about performance and versatility. It also prioritizes safety, packing a suite of driver assistance technologies as standard. This includes Automatic Emergency Braking, Forward Collision Alert, Lane Keep Assist, and IntelliBeam® High Beam Assist, among others.
Chevrolet’s commitment to safety extends to their innovative ‘Buckle to Drive’ feature and a Rear Seat Belt Reminder, ensuring both the driver and passengers are always buckled up. These features aim to significantly reduce passenger fatalities, a pressing concern based on NHTSA’s 2021 data.
Bold, Rugged, and Personalized
The 2024 Chevrolet Traverse carries a purposeful silhouette, balancing crossover- and truck-inspired design elements. Each trim has its unique persona with exclusive accents and details. Special mention goes to the RS trim, featuring an exclusive interior and exterior badging, all-new 22-inch high-gloss black aluminum wheels, and a blacked-out aesthetic for a sporty demeanor.
Tech-Forward Interior and Cargo Space
The Traverse’s interior prioritizes the driver experience. It sports a clean, spacious layout and a best-in-class 17.7-inch-diagonal color touchscreen, wireless phone charging, and Wi-Fi hotspot. It also provides a max cargo capacity of 98 cubic-feet, accommodating larger items with ease. The Traverse includes an eight-passenger seating standard on LS and an optional seven-passenger seating configuration on the LT, Z71, and RS.
