The Traverse is one of the largest models in the mid-size SUV segment. This model features one of the largest cargo areas. Traverse SUV competes with Ford Explorer, Kia Telluride, and Toyota Highlander. Under the hood, a  powerful V6 engine provides good performance and solid fuel economy.

Design Changes

As we said, the 2023 Chevrolet Traverse is one of the largest SUVs in the mid-size segment. This model is 204 inches long. In principle, Traverse is as long as the full-size Tahoe model. You can recognize it by the massive grille and Camaro-like LED headlamps. However, each trim level delivers something different.

For example, the sporty RS variant is most common, with lots of blacked-out accents and wider 20-inch wheels. With its red accent and exclusive wheels. The Redline Edition and the Premier trim are even more aggressive and sporty. Lastly, the High Country trim level is the range-topping trim that offers impressive  20-inch alloy wheels and additional chrome accents.

Interior Features

In terms of interior, the new 2023 Chevrolet Traverse comes with three rows of seats and a room for seven passengers. Folding the rear seats flat opens up an impressive cargo capacity. As we said, it is a minivan-like cabin and Traverse is more spacious than its biggest rivals.  Basically, you can place six suitcases, which is excellent, behind the third row.

All trim levels are offering nice comfort and plenty of standard features. Most equipment can, however, be found in the range-topping High Country model.   You can choose between a standard 7-inch or an optional 8-inch touchscreen. Both options are offering an impressive interface. On top of that, Chevy will provide a new infotainment system and new driver-assistance features.
