Three-row midsize SUV builds on signature versatility and active safety features, with best-in-class 17.7-inch-diagonal touchscreen, available Super Cruise driver assistance technology and more
DETROIT – Redesigned from the ground up, the all-new 2024 Chevrolet Traverse strengthens Chevy’s position in the midsize SUV segment. Offering bold design with more truck-like proportions, key safety features with families in mind, combined with greater horsepower and torque from an all-new engine. The new Traverse is positioned to lead in its highly competitive segment and grow its customer base thanks to the new off-road capable Z71 model.
“Our new Traverse is designed and engineered to act and look more like an SUV,” said Scott Bell, vice president, Chevrolet. “Led by the all-new Z71, the 2024 Traverse builds on the success of its predecessor and will undoubtedly enable us to be in more customer driveways.”
Four distinct trims — LS, LT, Z71 and RS — offer unique design and greater content choices, with all-new and enhanced safety features and technologies across the lineup.
All models are powered by an all-new 2.5L turbocharged engine that delivers a GM-estimated 315 horsepower and GM-estimated 317 lb-ft of torque, delivering more power than the previous models, including a 19% increase in torque. It is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission and available all-wheel drive — including an off-road-capable twin-clutch AWD system unique to the Z71. When properly equipped, the new Traverse has a max trailering rating of up to 5,000 pounds (2,268 kg).9
All-new Traverse Z71
The Traverse Z71 answers the call of experience-seeking adventurers who are bringing the family and their gear along for the journey, with a roster of off-road-capable features included as standard:
- More than 1-inch increased ground clearance coupled with increased track width for added stability, handling and capability
- All-terrain tires bring increased capability coupled with 18-inch wheels designed exclusively for Z71
- Unique front fascia purposely designed for improved approach angle, with an aluminum skid plate and signature Z71 red tow hooks
- Twin-clutch AWD system designed to optimize traction and handling in off-road driving conditions
- Unique dampers with hydraulic rebound control to improve off-road-capability
- Specific Terrain Mode within the driver-selectable drive modes
- Hill Descent Control
- Standard trailering package
More standard safety and driver assistance features than ever
When it comes to safety and driver assistance technologies, the 2024 Traverse delivers with meaningful features, starting with standard Chevy Safety Assist2 — a suite of safety features and driver assistance technologies that includes:
- Automatic Emergency Braking
- Forward Collision Alert
- Following Distance Indicator
- Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning
- IntelliBeam® High Beam Assist
- Front Pedestrian and Bicyclist Braking10

All Traverse trims come with an updated Buckle to Drive feature that requires the front-seat passenger, as well as the driver to be buckled before driving, and Teen Driver2 via the MyChevy app. Rear Seat Belt Reminder is also new, which alerts the driver if second or third row passengers have taken off their seat belt. According to NHTSA, in 2021, 26,325 passenger vehicle occupants were killed, and about 50% of those killed were not buckled (based on known seat belt use). Features like Buckle to Drive and Rear Seat Belt Reminder in the Traverse are strong reminders for drivers and their passengers to buckle every time they are in the vehicle.
Available features include Super Cruise1 hands-free driver assistance technology, including trailering and automatic lane change capabilities, Enhanced Automatic Parking Assist2 and Driver Attention Assist2.
Bold, rugged design
Framed by an all-new, more purposeful silhouette, the styling of the redesigned Traverse balances crossover- and truck-inspired design elements to give the vehicle a rugged, ready-for-anything presence.
A planted stance, with wheels pushed to the corners and strong-appearing shoulders, add to the commanding presence.
“The bold exterior of the all-new Traverse helps redefine its role and capability for customers,” said Phil Zak, executive design director, Global Chevrolet. “It is as versatile as ever, but with an increased focus on capability that reflects the spirit of its owners.”
Each trim has its own personality, achieved with unique accents and additional details including:

Airy, tech-forward passenger space
The new Traverse’s interior is all about the driver experience. It picks up the technology-forward ethos of other recently introduced Chevrolet models, with clean, sweeping lines and a lower beltline that conveys a more spacious feel. The instrument panel is also lower than the previous model, which enhances outward visibility and the feeling of airiness.
Display screens are the centerpiece of the cabin, starting with the best-in-class standard 17.7-inch-diagonal color touchscreen3. It’s more than two times larger than the largest available screen in the previous model and is the gateway to the Traverse’s connectivity. Wireless phone charging5 and Wi-Fi Hotspot4 are also available, and six USB ports6 are standard.
The Traverse is connected by OnStar®11 to provide customers with a variety of available safety, entertainment, convenience and driver experience features, including 24/7 access to live OnStar advisors, on-demand vehicle diagnostics11, HD streaming, in-vehicle apps11, and more.
