Older Chevrolet Traverse Selling in Tandem with New

Ramping Up Production of New Model

The recently-redesigned 2024 Chevrolet Traverse has received a total makeover, featuring a fresh look, updated motor, and other features; however, the former model will be available for a time. CarBuzz has confirmed that Chevy plans to market the previous-generation Traverse as the Limited model in addition to the freshly-debuted one.

“The 2024 Traverse Limited will be available for a limited time as the production of the all-new 2024 Traverse ramps up, which is scheduled to launch in early 2024 – just as we had previously announced when it was revealed earlier this year,” a Chevy spokesperson stated. “By providing the current generation as the Traverse Limited, we can better satisfy customer needs as we move towards the introduction of the next-generation, all-new Chevrolet Traverse.”

It has happened before; General Motors is no stranger to having an obsolete model sold in parallel with the latest one. They did this with their third-generation full-sized pick-up trucks, labelling them Silverado LD and GMC Sierra Limited while they were simultaneously available with fourth-generation variations. Also comparable is the case of the Malibu when it was offered as the Malibu Classic, alongside the Ram 1500 Classic and Nissan Rogue Select.

A leaked order guide has revealed that the Canadian market will be receiving five different trim levels of the Traverse Limited, all of which will come with all-wheel-drive. The United States may get the option of front-wheel-drive. The five trim levels are LS, LT, RS, Premier, and High Country. It appears that the manufacturer is keeping the older model around in order to provide customers with a more affordable option, who don’t necessarily need the newest features but still want to purchase a “new” vehicle.

It appears GM has likely already settled the associated fees with the exiting Traverse, thus allowing them to produce it at a low cost and pass on the savings to purchasers. If costs stay similar to those of last year, the Limited Traverse can be bought from $34,520 whilst the high-end High Country goes for up to $52,000.

The cost of the new model is presently unknown, however, Chevrolet might opt to reduce its price or provide desirable incentives in an attempt to shift as many units as achievable.

In divergence to the 2024 Traverse, the Limited version is equipped with a lone 3.6-liter V6 engine producing an output of 310HP alongside a torque of 266 lb-ft, combining with a nine-speed automatic transmission.

Regarding the new 2024 Traverse, it features a 2.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine providing an output of 328 hp and 326 lb-ft, which is shifted to the wheels with the help of an eight-speed automatic. This is much more than was declared initially by Chevy (315 hp and 317 lb-ft of torque) as well as more than the previous V6. Moreover, the styling is now sturdier particularly on the off-road Z71 version and hi-tech gadgets have been enhanced as well, including a standard 17.7-inch touchscreen.

We would be patient in awaiting the all novel Traverse, yet if you necessitate an SUV for the family at present and intent to conserve some money, the Traverse Limited is a suitable alternative.
