Chevrolet Traverse EV

The Chevrolet Traverse has been quite a popular nemplate for GM. The first generation came out in 2008 with a second generation following in 2017

We’ve now all seen the current new 3rd generation Traverse. The large 3-row SUV has more competition than ever, against the new Mazda CX-90, Toyota Grand Highlander, and upcoming redesigned versions of the Hyundai Palisade and Kia Telluride.

In its last year, the previous generation Chevrolet still sold over 116,000 units in 2023. Which is actually about 6000 more than the popular Kia Telluride everyone is talking about.

Chevrolet has just released EV versions of the Blazer and Equinox. There is already a 3-row EV from GM from Cadillac called the 2026 Cadillac Vistiq.

It’s not really rocket to figure out a larger 3-row Chevrolet EV based on the Ultium platform is also coming, and will probably use the Traverse name.

After a difficult launch for the new Blazer EV, it seems that so far, the Equinoix EV has been getting glowing reviews from almost everyone. By the time GM offers a more affordable 3-row EV, it will of course compete with the current Kia EV9, but also the upcoming Hyundai Ioniq 9. VW has also been talking about a 3-row EV SUV coming to the US, but who can really trust them?

Ford has also been working on a couple of larger 3-row SUVs for Ford and Lincoln. However, these have been delayed by a year.

As they say in Batton Rouge, it’s not really a party until everyone is invited…

  1. Wouldn’t appeal to Chevy owners, they don’t want a fancy lux EV with a pencil-thin grille and low profile tires. They want a Murikan McTruck with a BIG RIG GREEEYULL, and KNOBBY MUDDERS to go grocery shopping, and RED TOW HOOKS that they’ll never use.

  2. Whad cha talkinbout?!! That there red tow hook is for hanging a fake set of balls on, so that everyone knows how manly I am. Or how small mine really are…. same thing.
