Featuring a completely redesigned exterior, the Traverse's looks now match that of Chevrolet's newer offerings, which include the Malibu, Cruze, and Equinox, as the automaker shifts towards a harmonious design throughout its entire range. The crossover's design has moved upstream, as well, with more chrome pieces, LED lighting, and nifty LED running lights.
In addition to the new look, the Traverse's wheelbase has been stretched by two inches, resulting in even more interior space. Second-row captain's chairs are now available, as is a new split-folding second-row that is capable of tilting upwards and sliding forward to provide easy access to the vehicle's third row. The interior also benefits from a new multimedia system that comes with Andorid Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility.
A new host of safety features have been added to the Traverse, including a rear-view camera as standard, Surround Vision, a rear-seat reminder, Chevrolet's rear camera mirror, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, rear parking sensors, and adaptive cruise control.
Other changes have been made underneath the Traverse's body, as well. A new 3.6-liter V6 engine provides a boost in output and now works alongside a nine-speed automatic. A new Traction Mode Select allows drivers to change the crossover's driving mode in differing road conditions. And two new trims have been added to the lineup with the sporty RS and luxurious High Country.
