The new 2023 Chevrolet Traverse is coming, and it will introduce some improvements next year. If you’re looking for a minivan alternative, this model is a great replacement. The upcoming Traverse has enough capability to conquer other competitors in the class thanks to attractive styling and plenty of room to make road trips comfortable.
Generally speaking, this SUV is one of the bigger options in the mid-size SUV class and is a favorite for large families. It boasts a very large cargo area, outdoing key rivals such as the Toyota Highlander, Ford Explorer, and the Kia Telluride. On top of that, it’s powered by a very potent 3.6-liter V6 engine providing ample power and relatively great fuel efficiency with front-wheel drive.
2023 Chevrolet Traverse Exterior Changes
The 2023 Chevrolet Traverse is one of the biggest SUVs in class. This model is stretching over 204 inches, which is nearly 10 inches longer than the Toyota Highlander. For 2023, the Traverse will reportedly get a mild exterior freshening over the current generation.
From what we hear, the new SUV will include a much more attractive grille, updated front and rear fascia’s, and better LED headlight signatures. RS Traverse model is among favorites because it looks very sporty. The High Country is the top tier trim and is flashier with chrome and 20-inch wheels.
The new 2023 Chevrolet Traverse is a very spacious SUV that allows accommodations for seven or eight passengers. On top of that, Chevrolet’s six-tier model is modern inside thanks to use of premium materials. Anyway, stepping up to the top-level High Country, you’ll get even more luxury.
As mentioned, the Traverse offers a spacious cabin like some of the minivans, especially when you fold down the second and third-row seats. Chevy blessed the cabin with many advanced technologies. Inside, it features a high-mounted touchscreen, standard wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability, and so on.
2023 Chevrolet Traverse Engine Specs
Just like the previous generation, the new one will be powered by the same engine. The 2023 Chevrolet Traverse uses a 3.6-liter V6 engine, producing 310 horsepower. It sends power through a slick-shifting nine-speed automatic transmission to the front wheels as standard.
Of course, Chevy offers as optional all-wheel drive, which provides a much better handling on slippery roads. Speaking of which, the Traverse also comes with an automatic stop/start feature, saving some fuel when it is on idle. Judging by EPA, the estimated fuel-economy for all-wheel-drive Traverse High Country is 27 mpg, which is the best highway fuel consumption among its key competitors.
2023 Chevrolet Traverse Price, Release Date
The new 2023 Chevrolet Traverse is available in five trim levels including LS, LT, RS, Premier, and High Country. The entry-level LS starts at $35,000, LT $37,500, RS $45,300, Premier at $47,600, and the most equipped High-Country cost $52,500.
We expect the new model to go on sale next year as one of the bigger options in the mid-size SUV class. Thanks to great styling and even better cabin, the Chevrolet Traverse will compete against rivals such as the Ford Explorer, Toyota Highlander, and the Kia Telluride.
