2024 Chevy Traverse Overview

The¬†Chevy Traverse has long served as an attractive three-row SUV, filling a gap in the market for large families who need plenty of space. The 2024 Chevrolet Traverse marks the beginning of a new generation of this brand, so there are plenty of features to check out. If you’re wondering what to expect from the latest edition of this mid-sized SUV, our team of Chevy experts has reviewed its powertrain, interior style, and tech features to give you an idea.¬†

What’s New in 2024 for the Traverse?

Chevy has given the Traverse a complete overhaul, with new rugged and robust styling elements. There’s a new engine, extra optional off-roading features, and a new range-topping trim Z71 to explore.

What remains from the previous generation? Well, you’ll still find three rows of spacious seating, an upscale but affordable cabin, and lots of modern infotainment tech to keep you and your passengers entertained. Chevy is hoping to push into the market for more adventurous buyers with this redesign while continuing to cater to families who spend most of their time on paved surfaces.

Specs and Dimensions

The engine throughout the Traverse’ trim lineup is a turbocharged four-cylinder unit capable of 315 horsepower. This 2.5-liter unit is a change from the previous generation, which was powered by a V-6. All Traverse models will have an eight-speed automatic transmission and come standard with front-wheel drive. You can upgrade to an all-wheel-drive system, including one specifically designed for off-roading in the Z71 trim. Fuel economy figures have not yet been released for the 2024 Traverse, so we’ll update those when they become available.

The Traverse comes in at just over 204 inches or 17 feet, if you prefer, in length. It has a 121-inch wheelbase. Its height of 69 inches and width of 79 inches ensures you’ll have plenty of space in the cabin. If you can’t fit all your cargo in there, you can rely on a 5,000-pound towing capacity with the fully equipped Traverse.

Features and Trims

The features in the cabin of the 2024 Chevrolet Traverse are eye-catching. There are three adult-friendly rows of seating, which isn’t something you can usually say about most mid-sized SUVs. The standard setup includes a second-row bench seat, allowing you to fit up to eight people. You can opt for leather upholstery and other luxury features depending on the trim you choose.

If you’d like a bit more comfort and can afford to lose a seat, you can add second-row captain’s chairs. These chairs include a power-slide function to make your access to the third row easier. You can also add an optional power-folding third row so it’s more straightforward to transform the rear of the cabin into a cargo-carrying area.

With both rear rows folded flat, the Traverse offers a maximum of 97.6 cubic feet of storage. That’s class-leading among its competitors. You’ll find large storage areas upfront too, including a pass-through console and a deep center console in the front row.

There are four trims in the 2024 Traverse: LS, LT, Z71, and RS. With a starting price of $39,495, the LS trim has a great range of equipment for shoppers on a modest budget. The cabin features cloth upholstery, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, and a manually adjustable front passenger seat. Alongside the truly huge infotainment screen, you get a six-speaker stereo, navigation capability, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and BlueTooth.

The LT trim adds the captain’s chairs in the second row for a touch more comfort. You also gain a leather-wrapped steering wheel and a power liftgate to make loading your Traverse a breeze. The wireless charging pad is a great option for keeping your phone fully loaded while you’re on the go. Stepping up to the Z71 trim gets you access to an improved twin-clutch AWD system that’s specially designed for rough terrain. Other off-roading features include all-terrain tires, a 1-inch suspension lift to give you 7.7 inches of ground clearance, and 18-inch wheels.

The top-of-the-line RS trim has a sporty feel. It backs up this appearance with a tuned-up suspension and 22-inch wheels to ride on.

Safety and Tech

It’s hard to miss the 2024 Chevrolet Traverse’s new touchscreen. Its 17.7-inch display ensures you’ll have easy access to your most important settings and entertainment choices. The user-friendliness of the system is improved further thanks to standard wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, making it even easier to link up your smartphone. The driver also benefits from an 11-inch digital gauge cluster, allowing you to monitor your vehicle’s performance.

Chevy has equipped the Traverse with a long list of driver assistance features, which is ideal for safety-conscious families. You get lane keep assist, forward collision warning, and automatic emergency braking. The Buckle to Drive feature ensures that you can only drive off if people in the front row have their seatbelts on. Other standard features include blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and adaptive cruise control.

In the higher trims, you can access Super Cruise, the Traverse’s semi-automated driving system. On over 200,000 miles of roadway across the United States, this system can assume control of steering, braking, and acceleration. However, it remains important for the driver to pay attention at all times since the system cannot take action to evade accidents.
