Chevrolet Traverse Redesigned for 2021

The 2021 Chevrolet Traverse is the latest SUV refreshed by the American manufacturer.

  • Chevrolet presents the redesigned 2021 Traverse;
  • Features styling cues from the new Tahoe and Suburban;
  • Now available with adaptive cruise control.

After the mid-term overhaul applied to the GMC Acadia last year, General Motors is now turning to the Chevrolet Traverse, the three-row crossover that rests on the same platform as the GMC model, an architecture also shared with the Buick Enclave and the recent Cadillac XT6.

For the 2021 model year, the American manufacturer somewhat refines the image of its largest utility vehicle, if we exclude the imposing Tahoe/Suburban tandem. At the front, the new grille is inspired by the new full-size utilities unveiled a little before the end of 2019 and it must be admitted that the result fits rather well with the silhouette of the crossover. The headlights also have a renewed signature, while the lower portion of the shield is also redesigned.

Same story on the flanks while the design department has imagined four new wheel models. As for the rear portion, the renewed position lights represent the biggest change at this level, despite some other details reworked here and there.

Under the hood, Chevrolet hasn’t changed anything. This means that the obsolete atmospheric V6 with 310 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque continues its journey with the nine-speed automatic gearbox, which can be delivered in front-wheel drive or also with the possibility of all-wheel drive.

As is already the case for the 2021 Chevrolet Equinox and Trailblazer, the Traverse receives a battery of additional safety devices such as automatic braking, automatic detection and braking for pedestrians, lane departure warning and detection, frontal collision alert, automatic headlights and distance indicator with a vehicle in front.

The 2021 Chevrolet Traverse will also be available with a wireless charging pad, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto systems as well and three-row USB ports. The first copies of the 2021 Traverse are expected a little before the end of the year, if the COVIC-19 pandemic does not affect the production of the model of course!
