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 SUV-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 stand out 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.”

The 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 all-wheel drive is available — including an off-road-capable twin-clutch AWD system unique to the Z71.
