2024 Chevrolet Traverse Hybrid.

Last Updated:

While the US version of the 2024 Chevrolet Traverse is available in LS, LT, Z71, or RS versions, the Chinese market is also getting an Activ model. (I guess our Z71 is the closest thing to an Activ model)

And that’s obviously not the only difference. The Chinese version of the redesigned 2024 Chevrolet Traverse will also be available with a Hybrid powertrain. Which combines a 2.0 Liter engine and an electric motor. Something GM has never mentioned for the US market. As for the new Traverse is ditching the smooth 3.6 Liter V6 for a big 2.5 Liter Turbo 4 cylinder in North America.

GM has mentioned in the past they would not offer Hybrids in the US anymore, choosing to push full EVs as fast as they can. The Traverse is a popular SUV for Chevrolet with over 100,000 of them sold this year so far. And that’s for the “old” version. I think a hybrid model would actually do quite well here, I mean why not? They do have the technology ready to go. If done right, it could compete with the new Toyota Grand Highlander, itself a Hybrid as well.

We’ll see…

  1. They are smart not to waste their time with Hybrid tech that has marginal gains. Those looking for gas savings will just get an EV at the is point.

  2. With GM backing down on their plans for BEVs, I wouldn’t be surprised if hybrids pop back up. Until there’s another breakthrough to improve range and losses, hybrids are the coming big seller. Toyota knows it. Honda knows it. KiaHyundai knows it.

  3. It is shameful that that GM is not bringing the Chevy Traverse in a Hybrid. I am about ready to give up on Chevy for this shamless move as China is our worst enemy. What the hell were you thinking GM A 44 year loyal customer until now.😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡😡

  4. It is Shameful that Chevy is not bringing a Traverse Hybrid to America. I am about ready to give up on GM for making a Hybrid for our number 1 enemy. What the hell were you thinking.
    I was a 44 yr loyal customer until now.

  5. If GM doesn’t offer the traverse in hybrid in US they are going to loose sales to Toyota grand highlander hybrid

  6. I have two Chevy traverse SUVs. I want a hybrid. It’s going to have to be a Toyota grand Highlander. Too bad. I love Chevy.
