We’re spending the week using the 2020 Chevy Traverse . We’re well conscious that a completely facelifted Chevrolet Traverse is heading our way in 2021, but we’ll have to wait some time before it hits North American dealers. Meanwhile, we’re bringing you the 2020 Traverse RS, which underwent an essential change this year, as its turbocharged 2 . 0-liter LTG I4 engine – which produced 257 horsepower plus 295 pound-feet of torque – had been replaced by the naturally-aspirated 3. 6-liter LFY V-6 rated at 310 horsepower and 266 pound-feet torque capacity.
This is now the arrears powerplant for all Traverse variants, that was actually implemented in the RS cut in mid-2019. The engine remains managed by the GM nine-speed automatic transmission , driving either the front or all wheels.
Our check unit is painted in Silk Steel Metallic and features Plane Black leather-appointed seat trim. The particular RS variant also boasts 20″ Dark Android painted aluminum tires, back accenting, black roof side rails, black bow ties, gloss dark window trim and a Black Snow front grille with red RS badging.
The Traverse RS also comes standard with a warmed steering wheel, Intellibeam automatic high beam assist, forwards collision alert , lane keep assist with lane departure caution, automatic crisis braking and front side pedestrian braking.
As the 2020 Chevrolet Traverse doesn’t seem to have changed from the outside, General Motors proceeded to the deletion of the active aero wooden shutters on all versions as well as the introduction of the newly redesigned 5-digit pré-réglable keypad , as an option. Absolutely nothing changes visually inside, but in-vehicle technologies were updated.
For example, the last-generation infotainment systems had been upgraded to the latest Chevrolet Infotainment System 3. Other features such as the Rear Eyesight Camera and Surround Vision have been replaced with higher-resolution HD versions. The 2020 Navigate also adds Trailing Assist Suggestions along with Hitch Guidance with Problem View.
We will get this Chevy three-row midsize SUV to have an entire week, so if you would like to learn more about it beyond the spec linen, ask your questions in the comments area, and we’ll reply in a timely manner included in the GM Authority interactive review.
Ready…. set… go!
