Chevy will update the Traverse this year. Here are the changes coming late 2020.

The Traverse is Chevy’s third-best-selling nameplate. The Traverse has earned 1.3 million sales since it launched a little over a decade ago. Chevy is not sitting on success with this important vehicle.

Chevy Traverse Changes

The easiest to spot changes to the new 2021 Traverse are up front. There is a new fascia and the Traverse will have standard LED lights. “With this refreshed Traverse, Chevy will have one of the freshest SUV lineups in the market,” said Steve Majoros, vice president of Chevrolet marketing. “But it’s far more than just looks. Traverse already has a long list of safety features and will now offer more standard safety features across all trims, in addition to the functionality and style Traverse owners have come to appreciate.”

Standard Safety

Like almost every new vehicle or refresh, the 2021 Traverse will now include active safety systems standard. These include Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane Keep Assist, and Departure Warning, Auto High Beams, and a distance follower alert.  The industry is moving closer to its self-imposed deadline to have all of these features in every mainstream vehicle produced. New features include adaptive cruise control and a new safety alert seat on certain trims.

One feature we would like to try is wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Plugging in to access these great tools is a hassle and we won’t miss the cords in cars. The new wireless charging pad will ensure the apps don’t drain your phone’s battery. Chevy will also add a dual-pane panoramic sunroof option.

Watch for more details as we approach the new 2021 Traverse’s late 2020 introduction.
