The 2023 Chevrolet Traverse is expected to be a carryover from the 2022 Traverse, ahead of a redesign for the 2024 model year.
Expected for 2021, a refreshed Traverse ended up arriving for the 2022 model year because of Covid-19 pandemic-related shutdowns and the ongoing microchip shortages. The 2022 Traverse was modestly restyled with a new grille and exterior lighting, but few other changes to the design. Inside, Chevrolet added a new infotainment display and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
Critically, however, every Traverse now includes driver assistance features such as automatic emergency braking with pedestrian braking, lane-keep assist, and automatic high beam assist. Adaptive cruise control is now more widely available and higher trims come with a rear seat reminder, which can alert drivers that there may be a child or pet left in the car.
For 2022, the Traverse is available in six trim levels: LS, LS Cloth, LS Leather, RS, Premier, and High Country.
All models use a 3.6-liter V6 engine with 310 horsepower, mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission and standard front-wheel drive. All-wheel drive is an option. LS models can seat up to eight people with a split-folding second-row bench seat, but most versions seat seven with second-row captain's chairs.
The Traverse received Good scores in many of the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety's tests, including front and side crash tests. But the agency has not yet tested the vehicle's driver assistance features and has not given it a Top Safety Pick score yet. The 2022 Traverse has not yet been tested by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, but the structurally similar 2021 model earned a five-star overall rating, the highest score.
