The 2021 model year is going to be a big one for Chevrolet SUVs and crossovers. In addition to an all-new Tahoe, Suburban and refreshed Equinox, the bowtie brand is also refreshing the 2021 Chevrolet Traverse.
Announced today, the 2021 Traverse has gone under the knife with new front and rear fascia designs. The new face includes an entirely new fascia design, larger grille and new standard LED headlights. The combination yields an overall look that is more in line with the 2021 Tahoe and Suburban. Frankly, the new face is arguably a big improvement over today’s Traverse, so chalk this up as the rare refresh that’s an improvement.
Around back the 2021 Traverse features new LED taillights and refreshed brightwork. Unlike the front, the changes to the rear are very modest, but positive changes nonetheless.
In addition to the design tweaks, Chevrolet is now offering six standard safety features on all trim levels of Traverse. Chevy is also expanding availability of certain features, such as adaptive cruise control, on more trim levels.
While more standard features is a positive, new features are even better. Traverse buyers will now have the option to add an eight-inch driver information screen in the gauge cluster. They will also enjoy wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.
Rounding out the changes will be new interior seating options, though Chevy isn’t detailing exactly what those entail.
Expect to see the 2021 Chevrolet Traverse at dealerships later this year. Pricing will be announced closer to its launch.
