The 2024 Chevrolet Traverse Is Made For Family Adventures

Once a upon a time, Chevrolet Philippines sold the Traverse in the Philippines. Though that foray into the mid-sized crossover segment was short lived, but it did manage to pave the way for the likes of the body-on-frame Trailblazer to follow a few years later. Now that Chevy’s Philippine distributor, The Covenant Car Company, Inc., is looking more to North America to source its products, perhaps they would re-consider bringing back the all-new 2024 Traverse?

Powering Chevrolet’s all-new midsized crossover is a 2.5-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, replacing the long-serving V6 powertrain. The mill makes about 315 horsepower and 430 Nm of torque and is mated to an 8-speed automatic (versus a 9-speed automatic in the old Traverse) with available front or all-wheel drive.

In terms of design, the Traverse balances crossover and truck-inspired design elements. Features include standard LED lighting with a compound design, true dual exhausts, a panoramic sunroof, and L-shaped taillights akin to the just-released Trax. For the first time ever, there’s a more adventure-ready Z71 trim. It sits about an inch higher than the standard Traverse while also wearing a front aluminum skid plate. Special dampers with hydraulic rebound control, all-terrain tires, and a twin-clutch all-wheel drive system make it equal show and go.

Inside, it’s all about having a technology-forward experience with a 11-inch driver’s information cluster and a 17.7-inch colored touchscreen. The shifter is column-mounted to free up space for more storage, while a pass-through console design enables more storage. The Traverse seats eight as standard, but it can also be had in a seven-seater configuration thanks to second-row captains’ seats. Options include heated front and second-row seats and a power-folding third row.

In terms of safety, the 2024 Traverse comes with a full ADAS suite giving it automatic emergency braking, forward-collision warning, and more.

The all-new Traverse will be available starting in the United States in early 2024.


  1. And you can bet it's cheap over there in the US, like the Trax is.

  2. I believe there are a whole lot better alternatives than the Traverse.

  3. Good design except the side panels which at first look seem to be dented.

  4. Seen in real in LA, if they will sell in Philippines i ‘ll be the first to get one! I am tired of all those japanese/chinese trash cans.
