When Chevy Traverse interior paint concepts hit the road
By Car and Driver • Inside story Inside stories on how the Chevrolet Traverse concept arrived, what it’s like to drive the SUV, and what to expect when the new Traverse hits dealerships in the U.S. in 2021.
The interior design of the new SUV, called the Traverse 2.0, is based on a previous iteration of the SUV concept, and the interior design for the new model will be completely redesigned.
The concept was revealed at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show, where GM said it will be able to produce about 200 Traverse 1.5-liter four-cylinder engines in 2021 and 500 Traverse 3.0-liter engines in 2025.
Chevrolet said it has a total of about 2,200 Traverse vehicles on the road today, according to a statement on the company’s website.
Chevrolet also said it plans to bring in 1,000 more Traverses by the end of 2021.
“We are excited to unveil the first of the Traverses that will be built in this new, dynamic and innovative way,” GM chief executive Dan Akerson said.
“Traverse 2 will provide a completely new interior, while the exterior will be upgraded with a new, modern, dynamic look.”
The Traverse’s exterior will include a new “chevron pattern” on the hood and side skirts, which will feature LED headlights.
The exterior is also expected to include LED daytime running lights that will change colors when the car is turned off.
The redesigned interior is expected to have a more traditional layout, with the doors and center console positioned at the center of the dashboard and at the back of the cabin.
In the new design, the dashboard will also feature a center console with a digital display and a digital instrument cluster.
