An SUV needs a powerful engine and adaptability on the go, whether that's for your daily commute or a weekend following forest trails. All 2020 Traverse models are powered by a 310-hp 3.6L V6 engine paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission and standard front- or optional all-wheel drive. And to help you handle challenging conditions, the Traverse is also equipped with Traction Mode Select; just move the dial to select snow mode, sport mode, towing mode, and more.
Looking for something to brag about? How about the Traverse Redline Edition. Dramatic exterior styling makes heads turn, thanks to its black and red wheels, distinctive door badging, and gloss black or chrome accent finishing. The Redline Edition Package option is limited to Premium trim models and comes in monochrome exterior colors. Completing the Redline Edition's high-end vibe is a black-ice grille and SkyScape power sunroof. If you like to set yourself apart from the crowd, the Redline Edition is the one to watch.
Your busy lifestyle might mean you need an SUV with seating on some days and a boxy space for cargo the next. The 2020 Traverse has got you covered for all eventualities, from road trips that need seating for seven or eight, to that first college drop-off with your excited freshman (and all their boxes).
For easy entry and exit, the Traverse has a Smart Slide® second row that tilts forward and slides to assist your third-row passengers or four-legged friends. The Traverse's second and third rows also fold down to reveal 98.2 cu-ft of cargo space behind the front row. Need to mix it up? The rear rows both have 60/40 split-fold convenience.
If you want to spoil your family with the best, the Traverse High Country trim has deluxe features and the rugged capability required for life's more adventurous journeys. The chrome grille fascia and 20-inch aluminum wheels make an athletic and bold exterior statement. The SkyScape dual-panel sunroof floods the cabin with light, while your leather-appointed first and second rows can be either Jet Black, or Loft Brown (a High Country exclusive). Rest assured, the Traverse High Country is built for the tough jobs too; it's the only trim to offer as standard, a trailering equipment package and enhanced automatic emergency braking.
Vacationing cross-country to the lakes and mountains is a grand adventure for all. So while you focus on navigating the road ahead, the Traverse takes care of your passengers' comfort, providing an abundance of space and all the cubbies, tech, and storage options they could possibly need. From the LS trim upwards, 10 drinks holders, deep door pockets, two USB ports for each row, and an optional 4G LTE WiFi® Hotspot will keep everyone content, including you.

The 2020 Traverse has seating for up to eight passengers across three rows. The second row decides your capacity, with a three-across bench seat taking the total passenger count up to eight, or a pair of captain's chairs that reduces it to seven.

Cloth upholstery is standard, with leather upgrades from the 3LT trim upwards. Automatic tri-zone air-conditioning and 10 drinks holders (LS trim and above) are features your passengers will appreciate, while heated seats are standard from the 3LT trim and above.

2009–2017 Chevrolet Traverse (First Generation)
The Traverse received its first big refresh in 2013, upgrading the exterior and interior styling and adding more driver assistance features. Minimal changes followed: the 2014 models gained available forward collision warning and, for 2015, more tech with available Siri® Eyes Free. Chevrolet changed up the Traverse trims in 2017, retiring the LTZ, and adding the LS and Premier.
2018–2022 Chevrolet Traverse (Second Generation)
Highlights of the 2018 second-generation Traverse include a restyled exterior, a 257-hp turbocharged 2.0L engine option for the RS trim, and an updated infotainment system.
