Delivering a fresh look the 2022 Chevy Traverse is notable in a few areas.  First, the front with a new fascia and grilles.  Plus a new headlamp configuration.

Also, the taillamp has a new look along with the roof rail and wheels.  Then there’s available power-folding and heated mirrors.

Additionally, the bow-tie brand updates Traverse’s popular Redline Edition.  And it adds Midnight and Sport Edition availability along with a few new colors.

Inside Traverse is offering more tech features for 2022.  Including tech for assisting the driver and connectivity.  Our favorite being the addition of wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

Traverse comes is a trim configuration for every purpose we can think of.

From the base LS to the loaded High Country.  But also there are special edition packages many buyers love adding on to various trims.

And these include Midnight, Sport, and Redline Edition.  Plus Chevy’s website informs of an RS Edition.  How that is different from the RS trim is unclear.

  • LS $35,095
  • LT
    • cloth $37,595
    • leather $41,295

Engine, Transmissions, And MPG

Keeping it easy Chevy Traverse comes with a single engine and transmission.  That’s no matter which trims you’re buying.

And we’re loving the engine!  Because it’s a 3.6-liter V6.  Boasting 310 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque.  It’s powerful and quick.

That’s thanks to the smooth-shifting 9-speed automatic transmission.  That’s responsive and efficient.

So your option is all-wheel-drive or two-wheel drive.  And the two-wheel option means your getting a front-wheel drive.  Being big fans of rear-wheel drive, that’s one thing we’d love to see change.

The fuel economy for the 2022 Chevy Traverse is solid.  Staying consistent throughout the trim options.

Fuel Economy:

  • FWD 18/27
  • AWD 17/25


Curb Weight And Towing Capacity

Chevrolet says the 2022 Traverse has a curb weight of at least 4,310 lbs.  And that’s with the LS trim and front-wheel drive.  So all the higher-level trim configurations will weigh more.

Plus Traverse is a capable crossover for towing.  Because you can drag up to 5,000 lbs of stuff wherever Chevrolet’s new roads are taking you.  To be clear, that’s with the available trailering package.

2022 Chevy Traverse Interior

Highlighting inside Traverse is its class-leading cargo space.  And at 96.2 cubic feet, it’s a big factor for sure.

But there’s lots more to the inside of Traverse that makes it appealing.  Luxury appointments like optional second-row captains chairs.  And dual sunroofs.

Plus Traverse seats up to eight passengers.  What’s more, is that the third row of seating can accommodate smaller adults.  Kids for sure.  They’ll be comfortable.  But the third rows of most midsize sport-utes end there.
